Previously, Kapil Sharma on his show revealed that he had a small role in Sunny Deol's Gadar: Ek Prem Katha. Even though the scene in which he appeared didn't make the final cut, he still has fond memories of being on the set. The film's action director, Tinu Verma, recounted how he was quite unhappy with Kapil on that specific day and pushed him off the set in a recent conversation with veteran actor Mukesh Khanna.

Tinu revealed that when they were filming, a sizable crowd was there, and everyone was told to rush in the direction of the train. When he signalled for everyone to go, everyone ran in the direction of the train, except for Kapil, who was racing the other way. Tinu phoned the young man and gave him instructions. He recalled that because of Kapil, they filmed one more take.

When they started moving again, Tinu claimed that the youngster was the only thing on his mind. Once more, Kapil took off in the opposite direction. Tinu remarked that he dropped the camera down and hurried in his direction. He caught the comedian and gave him a slap. He also had him removed from the scene.

Kapil recounted this incident and revealed that he went in the opposite direction because he wanted to stand out when Sunny Deol earlier made an appearance on his show. This was the only method he could think of to stand out from the crowd because he was certain that he would be lost in the sea of people. When Sunny discovered that Kapil was in his movie, he was pretty surprised.

The current pause in The Kapil Sharma Show will end in September, when it will resume. The comedian-actor will appear as a food delivery agent in Nandita Das' upcoming directorial.
