Kapil Sharma has played host to some of the biggest stars in Bollywood, and also a number of Indian cricketers on his popular TV show. But now, the comedian wishes to have politicians as guests on his new show. One person high up on that list is India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi, whose story he finds very "inspirational".

"I wish to have Mr Narendra Modi on our new show ('The Kapil Sharma show'). I was watching television recently and saw Mr Barack Obama on Ellen's show (on 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show') and it is great. We should also have politicians connecting to people," Kapil said in an interview here.

 

"If we have Mr Modi on the show we will not talk about politics, party and all. I would love to know how a man from a small town has come this far and became the PM of our country. It's an inspirational story. I will try and talk to him," he said.

Kapil said he is happy that his previous show 'Comedy Nights with Kapil', has ended as he is now getting the opportunity to try something novel.

"I feel it is good that show got over as we got the opportunity to do something different as the characters were fixed. Now that we have a new show, everyone is excited. We are making a different show," he said.

 

Apparently, all was not well between Kapil and Colors. Gossip mills were also abuzz that Kapil was insecure with another comedian Krushna Abhishek's show "Comedy Nights Bachao", which also aired on the channel. Actor-comedian Krushna had said there is rivalry between him and Kapil.

Kapil, however, cleared that though he had some differences with the channel, there was no friction between him and Krushna.

"I had some issues with the channel some differences. We both (Krushna and I) did a show called 'Comedy Circus', together. There is nothing like that," he said.
