The grapevine is buzzing with reports of Kapil Sharma acting pricey, of late. Sources suggest that the television funnyman, who will soon make his Bollywood debut, demanded Rs 75 lakh for a solo live show. Incidentally, when Kapil and Co staged a comic act for a festival in Uttar Pradesh last year, he had approximately charged Rs 65 lakh, sharing the payment with his teammates. So, the apparent hike in his individual fee has baffled event organisers.

A source says Kapil, who will shortly be jetting off to Malaysia for a show, has been getting a lot of offers for stand-up gigs in India as well as abroad. Adds the source, "He was approached for a domestic event, but he asked for R75 lakh. Now the organisers are in a dilemma; they want him on board, but have a limited budget. So, they are checking with advertisers and sponsors if they can chip in for such a hefty amount." Kapil remained unavailable for comment. Preeti Simoes, co-producer of his comedy show on TV, denies the buzz about him having asked for Rs 75 lakh.
Traveling gives us the opportunity to disconnect from our regular life. You get to forget your problems/issues for a few weeks, it can also help you figure things out that you would not have understood without the distance traveling can give you. We all have crazy schedules, work and a family to take care of, going away alone or with some friends can give you distance and perhaps even make you realize how important these people are for you. Like the saying says: we never know what we have until we lose it.
Another great benefit is the relaxation you get to do. It’s nice to live life to its fullest and enjoy a stress free time with yourself. Going on vacation lets us recharge our “batteries” by disconnecting us from our regular life. When we come back we feel invigorated and we are happy to be back in our day to day routine. It’s a very good stress remover that has a lot more to give than most people are willing to accept.
Traveling increases our knowledge and widens our perspective. To view new customs, different ways of living is fantastic for the mind. It gives us a new perspective about life and especially our life, it can help us change some of our habits or even create new ones. When I travel I usually make it a point to try new food, some cultures don’t have fries in their diet and they are all skinny, others use spices to give taste and not oils or fats. Discovering different values and ways to get by in life is really interesting. You also need to visit exotic new places and discover what this wonderful world has to offer.
