After being Miss India, working in Punjabi and Telugu films and making her Bollywood debut with Ekta Kapoor’s Kuku Mathur Ki Jhand Ho Gayi, Simran Kaur Mundi plays one of Kapil Sharma’s three wives in Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon. The film also stars Manjari Phadnis and Sai Lokur as Kapil’s other two wives besides Elli Avram as his girlfriend!

She reveals, “I had reservations about doing a multistarrer because of the cat fights. I have grown up as a tomboy and I gelled more with guys than girls. I had very few girlfriends. So I was wondering how I will manage on the sets.”

Fortunately for Simran, her fears were unfounded. She exclaims, “I found all the girls so sweet and helpful. I think this comes from the sense of security that our characters are very different from each other, that no one is going to overshadow anybody. In fact, after this film is over, I can now say that I have a few more girlfriends.”

The next hurdle for Simran was matching wits with Kapil Sharma who is known for his coming timing. “I was worried that the scene will fall flat because of me. But when we first met, he started talking in Punjabi and we connected instantly... we got friendly and all my stress disappeared. I have learnt from him that it’s not about the lines, it’s about the way you say them that makes it funny,” she says.
