"I am always scared before going on stage, this is the fear which makes me do well," Kapil told IANS.
Kapil, who started his journey from a regional stand up comedy show and has made his way up the ladder, has now produced a show 'Comedy Nights with Kapil', which went on air June 22 on Colors television show.
He is also currently seen co-hosting dance reality show 'Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa' with anchor Manish Paul.
Asked if managing 'Jhalak...' with his new production will be a problem, Kapil said: "I am not having any problem balancing both the shows. The channel is supporting me a lot and both the shows belong to the same channel."
Meanwhile, Kapil will also start working on a Punjabi movie soon.
