Q : Your debut film was supposed to be ‘Bank Chor’ , so how did ‘Kis Kisko Pyaar Karu’ happened?
Kapil : Certain thing isn’t in our hands and so ‘Bank Chor’ did not happen due to issues from both sides. But , this film also came to me at the same time.As a comedian , people expect me to come out with a comic film as my debut and also this film belongs to comic genre.This film is a family film like my show suitable for all age groups.
Q : How challenging is it to see yourself on the big-screen from a TV?
Kapil : Working on television requires us to shoot episodes on time.But , for a film the entire canvas changes as we have a plan and then we go ahead.It wasn’t difficult for me as I got to learn a lot of various things.
Q : You recently had a back injury , so did it affect the film in any way?

Q : Director Abbas Mustan is known to be an action director , so how comfortable was him in making this film

Q : Who is your inspiration for your comic timing ?
Kapil : I feel you should never try to copy yourself.A successful person is one who makes his own style.When I see People like Amitabh Bachchan I like his style of romancing and action.It is a natural process and I feel very fortunate that I got to learn a lot of things through this film.
Q : The film has 4 leading ladies opposite you , so with whom you had a good tuning?
Kapil : I think you should ask them about me.I had a very good equation with all of them.Especially , Eli has done a very good job.Being a foreigner she has managed to learn and speak Hindi properly and is very fond of Bollywood.Otherwise , all my heroines have worked equally well and good.

Kapil : I started my journey as a serious theatre artist in 1997.I had once seen a person performing histrionics and was very amazed by the act and received a good response for the same.Then , I moved to a channel called MH1 and once again received a good response.I tried of doing by myself and it all happened accidentally
