After bonding at a recent event with Prime Minister Narendra Modi, actor-comedian Kapil Sharma posted a couple of pictures with former PM Dr Manmohan Singh on social media. He penned a note following the meeting to thank the former PM for his hospitality. In the first picture, he can be seen engaged in a conversation with Dr Manmohan Singh and in the second one he can be seen posing with the former PM and his wife.
Sharing the picture on Instagram, the comedian revealed that he met the former Prime Minister in his residence recently and had a 'heart to heart conversation' about their roots in Amritsar. Kapil Sharma further opened up about how he and Dr Manmohan Singh studied from the same college and stated that they also discussed food.
In the post, 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 🙏"

Meanwhile, ace-comedian Kapil Sharma is back with a bang after a much-needed hiatus as he kick-started the new year with 'The Kapil Sharma Show', that has made it to the top already as far as TRP's are concerned. The second season of the show opened with a TRP of 3.4 and raked in 3.2 over the weekend, with 'Super Dancer' following in. On the personal front, Kapil Sharma tied the knot with his longtime girlfriend Ginni Chatrath in Jalandhar on December 12, last year.
