His aim was only to do stand-up comedy. India�s most loved TV show anchor Kapil Sharma is all set to debut on the big screen, but the stand-up comic says he had never thought he would get a chance to do movies. �I had never thought of doing a movie. My aim was only to do stand-up comedy and I was doing it well,� said Kapil. Anukalp, the writer of his show, has also written Kapil�s debut movie Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon. �He (Anukalp) had shown the script to Abbas-Mustan some time back and the belief Abbas-Mustan showed on casting me inspired me to do the movie,� Kapil said. Kapil was too busy shooting for Comedy Nights when he signed the movie. �I gave the mahurat shot for the movie after a night-long shoot of �Comedy Nights�. I didn�t slep all night, but I don�t know how I got the energy,� he said. Kapil, who made his entry in the entertainment industry through a comedy show, has been here for over eight years. �TV has given me everything. There was news that I had said that I hate how TV works. But the fact is that I had a slipped disc in February, and in TV, you have no option but to work. �I had to produce the episode for the next telecast. This is the thing about TV that I don�t like. I pulled off till June, spoke to my doctors and then decided to quit as I could not pull it further,� he said. There were rumours that his popular TV show stopped as he had to go to US. �People feel I stopped the show for shows in the US but that�s not true. The commitments were quite prior to all this. People had invested there as well, arenas were booked, tickets sold, so I had to do it.� �But I will continue TV as it has given me a lot,� he added. Kis Kisko Pyaar Karu also stars Arbaaz Khan, Manjari Phadnis, Amrita Puri, Simran Kaur Mundi, Elli Avram, Varun Sharma, Supriya Pathak and Johnny Lever�s daughter Jamie Lever. Directed by Abbas Mustan, the movie is set to release on September 25.
