Actor and Comedian Kapil Sharma’s biopic is on the way and according to reports it is titled ‘Funkaar.’ The film will be directed by ‘Fukrey’ director Mrigdeep Singh Lamba and will be produced by Mahaveer Jain and Chennai-based Lyca Productions.

As reported by Zee News, Lamba has said in a statement, "Looking forward to bringing to the audience the story of India's most beloved Funkaar. Kapil Sharma," Lamba said in a statement.

Jain, who earlier backed Rajinikanth's '2.0' as well as upcoming films like actor Akshay Kumar-starrer 'Ram Setu', said the team is excited to present Sharma's life story to the world. "Billions of people get their daily dose of dopamine, courtesy Kapil Sharma. We all need love, life, and laughter. We are proud to present comedy superstar Kapil Sharma's untold story on the big screen, in a big way," he said.

Following that, he appeared in comedic roles on ‘Comedy Circus’ and other television series. In 2013, Sharma launched ‘Comic Nights With Kapil’, a comedy show. However, due to a disagreement with the TV channel, he had to put the project on hold. With ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’, he made a comeback in 2016.

Sharma has earlier appeared in the film ‘Kis Kis Ko Pyaar Karoon’ and ‘Firangi’. He is currently the host of the television show ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’.
