After Sanjay Dutt's life presented on big screen in the Sanju biopic, popular comedian-actor Kapil Sharma's biopic is in the making. The film will be helmed by Vinod Tiwari who is currently occupied with the shooting of Teri Bhabhi Hai Pagle.

The script of the film has already been worked upon and the film will roll out later in this year. "Kapil has started from scratch and it would be very interesting to put his journey from Amritsar to Mumbai on the silver screen. I really wish that Kapil does this film but if he doesn't do it, then Krushna Abhishek, who has worked very closely with Kapil would be the perfect choice for my film. I have shared the concept with Krushna and he is very excited to work on this project. But, we are planning to get Kapil on board," Tiwari said to a leading tabloid.

He added, "In 2010, too I wanted to do a film on Kapil but things didn't work but now I have producers too, who have always wanted to work with Kapil. I am not RajKumar Hirani, but I will try my best to showcase the life of Kapil in the best possible way. That is why I have also registered the name of the film as The Kapil Sharma-Real Hero."

The film is still in the development stages; hence the casting of the film is yet to be locked. The director further mentioned that Kapil has always been grounded despite of being successful in his career. "Kapil gradually grew in the industry and became the king of comedy. He became hero from zero and his journey is full of hardships and ups and downs. I realised a film can be made on his life," he added.

The biopic will be a canvas of Kapil Sharma's life journey from a struggling artist to a prominent comedian in Mumbai. The film will also showcase Kapil's disturbing moments in his personal and professional life. Kapil Sharma's character will be played by either Kapil himself or Krushna Abhishek. "The whole story is ready. We haven't spoken to Kapil Sharma yet, but if he agrees, we will ask him to essay himself in his biopic. If for some reason he denies, Krushna Abhishek will get into his shoes," Tiwari added.

As Krushna Abhishek and Kapil Sharma have worked in the same sphere professionally, their acquaintance has led Tiwari to choose Krushna to play the central character in the film.
