I was not expecting such a positive response,” the “Comedy Nights With Kapil” hero said at a special screening of his debut film here.

“Thanks to everybody for sending so much love and blessings. ‘Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon’ commenced on a very good note and hopefully it will carry on a high note in coming weeks,” added Kapil,

Meanwhile, Kapil is also happy that Bollywood no longer stereotypes an actor.

Talking about the changing facade of Hindi films, he said: “Gone are the days when there was a myth that a comedian cannot play a hero. Today actors want to portray diverse characters. They don’t want to get typecast as a romantic hero only and many actors nowadays like to play negative characters.”

“So, the perception of people has changed and it’s a good thing.”

Directed by Abbas-Mustan, the film also features Arbaaz Khan, Elli Avrram, Manjari Phadnis, Simar Kaur Mundi and Sai Lokur in the cast.
