Kapil Sharma is perhaps the first person that comes to mind when we think of humour. Numerous people believe that, despite the fact that many stand-up comedians have achieved fame, Kapil Sharma is on a different level.
All of Kapil Sharma’s achievements were only possible because of his devotion and hard work. He made his first appearance on television in 2007 on The Great Indian Laughter Challenge but was quickly eliminated. He returned to the show later with a wild card entry and won the competition.
He is also a fantastic vocalist, and Lata Mangeshkar commended him when he appeared on the show Star Ya Rockstar in 2011. Later, he turned his god-given comedic abilities into a business, launching his own show, Comedy Nights with Kapil, in 2013.
Apart from these, Kapil Sharma was offered roles in a number of other films, but he turned them down. Here are the films that Kapil turned down:
Mubarakan, an Indian romantic comedy directed by Anees Bazmee and produced by Sony Pictures Network Productions. Anil Kapoor, Arjun Kapoor, Ileana D’Cruz, Athiya Shetty, Neha Sharma and Ratna Pathak were featured in this film.
Kapil Sharma was approached by Anil Kapoor for a part in the film, but he turned it down. When Anil questioned him why he turned down the opportunity, he didn’t elaborate and simply responded,
” Sir please continue offering me good projects”
Anil Kapoor then replied sarcastically and said,
“You know I do support roles, character roles, father roles these days. support the role of your father or brother, tell me.”
Kapil then satirically responded,
“Both our eyes get shut when we laugh, we will even look like father and son. But I am afraid that you may be signed on for the role of the father and I may be the one looking like the father on screen.” later, he also promoted Anil Kapoor on Instagram and captioned “Meet the evergreen superstar @anilskapoor, sir, in #tkss tonight.”
Another movie that Kapil Sharma simply rejected was Tezz, an action thriller film directed by Priyadarshan. The movie featured actors like Ajay Devgn, Anil Kapoor, Kangana Ranaut, Zayed Khan, Sameer Reddy and Boman Irani. But unfortunately, the movie was terribly unsuccessful because it failed at the office.
Bank chor is a dark comedy film directed by Bumpy. The film starred Ritesh Deshmukh, Vivek Oberoi and Rhea Chakraborty. With box office earnings of only Rs. 0.007 crore, the film was likewise a disaster at the box Yash Raj Films produced the picture.
Vivek Oberoi made his first return after 15 years with Yash Raj Films. Even though Kapil Sharma had been given a role in the film, his dislike for the storyline led him to decline the offer.
Woh Saat din
Woh Saat Din was a 1983’s Hindi romantic comedy and starring Anil Kapoor, Padmini Kolhapure, and Naseeruddin Shah. The film was directed by Bapu. Anil Kapoor gained prominence in the film industry as a result of the film, and he had offers for many more films as a result of it.
When rumours of a remake of the film ‘Woh Saat Din’ surfaced, Kapil Sharma was among the cast members chosen by the production. He, on the other hand, turned down the opportunity for getting cast.
24 is an action-thriller television series that premiered in India in 2013. The plot was inspired by the same-named American television series.

In 2016, a second instalment of the series was released. The series was also well-received by the general public.
Kapil Sharma was initially given a role in the film by Anil Kapoor, but he declined. When pressed for an explanation, he stated that he was very pleased to be a part of the TV series, but that he had to reject due to his impending concert.
