Vinod Tiwari, who will make his debut as a director with the forthcoming film Teri Bhabhi Hai Pagle, is keen on making a biopic on actor-comedian Kapil Sharma after watching Sanju, based on the life of actor Sanjay Dutt.

He said in a statement, "After watching Sanju, I am inspired to make a biopic and I feel [a] biopic on Kapil Sharma will be worth it. It's a story that needs to be out. In 2010, we wanted to make a film with Kapil ji, but producers Surendra Puri and Nostrum couldn't do it then. Now, they are also keen on a biopic."

While Tiwari would want the man to play himself on screen, he has an alternate name in mind, should the comedian disagree. "I feel, Krushna Abhishek will be perfect for the role as they are known for their comic timing. He will do justice to Kapil ji's character." Having been pitted against each other since the onset of their careers in the industry, Abhishek and Sharma have shared a rather strained relationship. Sharma has been in the news for controversies surrounding his professional life. In April, he drew bad press when an audio call, in which he is heard hurling abuses at a journalist, surfaced.
