Spilling some more beans, a source close to the development informs an entertainment portal, “A TV superstar aside, Kapil has always aspired to be an actor, and his debut film, Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon (2016), was a big success. He has been on the hunt for the right script for a while now, and in the midst of that, has zeroed down on a web-show for SonyLIV app. The show is a sit-com fronted by Kapil and will go on the floors by August end in Mumbai.”
