India’s most popular comedian Kapil Sharma is reportedly dating Preeti Simoes.
Preeti heads the production of “Comedy Nights with Kapil”, a popular comedy show on Colors TV, which is produced by Kapil.
The show, which was launched only a couple of months ago, has already won the Best Comedy Show award at a recent television awards competition. Kapil was named Best Comedy Actor at the same awards ceremony.
Kapil and Preeti have been spotted together on many occasions. But conflicting reports also claim that Kapil is engaged to his “Hans Baliye” co-star Bavneet Chatrath, also known as Ginni.
The comedian has denied these reports, saying that his “only relationship is with my work.”
In an interview to an Indian newspaper, Kapil says, “I have struggled to reach where I am today and I can’t let these rumours affect me.
“I have realised that this is part and parcel of being a public figure. I am a private person and request the media to rather write about my work.”
He has also shown respect to the ladies named in the rumour. “I would not like to talk about the same any further as it also harms the dignity of the two girls involved.”
Intending to keep clear of further controversy, Kapil reportedly declined the offer to participate in the dance reality show “Nach Baliye 6” as the show would require his participation with his girlfriend.
Explaining his decision, Kapil says, “Yes, the makers of the show have approached me to join the show either as a host or as a participant.
“I am not interested in doing it as I don’t want any false publicity by going for the show as a participant with any fake partner.”
The 32-year old comedian from Amritsar rose to popularity after winning a comedy competition on TV, The Great Indian Laughter Challenge, with two popular characters: Samsher Singh and Lala Roshan Lal.
