MUMBAI: "Comedy Nights With Kapil" director Rajiv Dhingra is keen to make a Bollywood film with actor-comedian Kapil Sharma.

Rajiv was associated with the popular show since its inception and had directed the first 30 episodes of "Comedy Nights With Kapil" which ran for three years before going off air last month.

"I am planning to make a film with him and we have been in talks. We both are childhood friends so definitely I will work with him. I have an idea which I discussed with Kapil and he had liked it too. It is going to be a light hearted comedy film," Rajiv told.

"Comedy Nights with Kapil" became one of the most celebrated shows on television with many Bollywood celebrities making an appearance on it. The show, also starring Ali Asgar, Sumona Chakravarti and Sunil Grover, aired its last episode on January 24.

The director says it was "sincere" efforts of the team which made the show a hit.

"We all just wanted to do something new and the result was everybody's sincere efforts. The show's success just happened on its own. The team worked really hard for it.

"Kapil is a very hardworking and honest man. He is in the position today because of his work and he deserves it."

Rajiv is currently elated with the success of his Punjabi film, "Love Punjab" which released last week.

"I am very happy with the film and the business it has done. To be honest, I did not expect such an overwhelming response from the audience. Punjabi cinema is still growing and today we have good directors and actors coming up. It is an exciting phase."
