Kapil Sharma’s mother told Akshay Kumar that her son was not mischievous as a child. She also mentioned a childhood incident involving Kapil. View the video.
Kapil Sharma, a comedian, shared a brief video of his mother Janak Rani discussing his childhood with actor Akshay Kumar. Kapil Sharma took to Instagram to share a clip from his show, The Kapil Sharma Show, in which his mother and Akshay spoke in Punjabi while the comedian listened.
In the video, Akshay Kumar asks Kapil’s mother if she ever told him when he was younger to make the guests laugh. She responded that Kapil was not a bad child. “If he is not shaitan (naughty), then no one in the world is,” a surprised Akshay said.
The comedian’s mother then recalled a time when a young Kapil used to leave ‘pudiya (packets)’ in front of people’s homes in their residential quarter at night. She claimed that when the neighbours woke up in the morning, they would wonder, “Keda mar gaya, tona kar gaya?” “I used to get very angry because I knew it was my son,” she added. Everyone burst out laughing, including Kapil.
Kapil then asked his mother about the first movie her husband took her to see in a theatre, and she said it was Main Tulsi Tere Aangan Ki (1978). When the comedian asked what was going through her mind, she replied that her husband was attractive but she wasn’t. Kapil’s mother added that she was scared when he took her out at night, wondering if he would push her and kill her.
