Comedian Kapil Sharma met former Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh and his wife Gursharan Kaur at their residence on Tuesday. Kapil shared a set of pictures from the meeting on social media and wrote that they had a “heart to heart conversation about their roots in Amritsar.” He wrote, “Thank you, respected Dr Manmohan Singh for the warmth, hospitality and a heart to heart conversation about our roots in Amritsar, especially about our college and food. Was an honour meeting such a humble and simple statesman like you, and receiving blessings from ma’am. Regards.” Take a look at the pictures from their meeting here.
Some weekends ago, Kapil met Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the opening of National Museum of Indian Cinema in Mumbai. To his post from the event, PM Modi replied, “When Kapil Sharma appreciates somebody’s humour, it sure makes that person happy and I am no exception. Thank you for the kind words, Kapil.”
