Mumbai : Singer Oye Kunaal is fond of getting tattooed. So much so, he already has nine tattoos inked on him. However, one tattoo stands out from the others as it is the name of a celebrity. Oye Kunaal has got comedian Kapil Sharma’s name inked on his hand. In a grand gesture, the singer is proud to flaunt his love and respect for Kapil Sharma, whose name stands synonymous to top-notch comedy content.
Sharing an interesting story behind the love and respect Oye Kunaal has for Kapil Sharma, he says, “There was a phase in my life when my father was suffering from a lot of health issues. I had never seen my father so ill before that. Right now he is fit and fine. At that time the atmosphere in my house was very grim and dark. So, in an atmosphere where people were not talking to each other with ease in the house, Kapil Sharma’s show used to be on television. We used to watch his shows, the re-runs. His shows kept going on and the atmosphere in the house started changing. With his shows, laughter and positivity started returning in the household. By that time my father also started responding to the medicines. And I never knew at that time that I would meet Kapil paaji. I wanted to tattoo his name but never really got it.”
Oye Kunaal, who got the tattoo some time back reveals that he also made his father meet Kapil and that was a big day for him. “Eventually I came to Mumbai but still never actually got it inked. Though the thought was always at the back of my mind. After some time I met Kapil Paaji and developed a good bond. This tattoo is a reminder of the reality of my life. The day I made my father meet Kapil Paaji, I felt as if I have achieved everything in life. It was single happiest moment for me. I also showed the tattoo to Kapil paaji and he was so surprised. This is my way of showing my love and respect for him,” says Oye Kunaal.
