Fondly known as SK Sir, Abhilash Thapliyal made his way to Bollywood with not just one but multiple promising roles. The actor, popular for TVF’s Aspirants, recently worked with Anurag Kashyap in Kennedy. For those who have sneered at entertainment pages all along, Kennedy premiered at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival.
In an exclusive conversation with India TV, Abhilash Thapliyal opened up about appearing in Koffee With Karan, hosted by Karan Johar. When asked if he would like to appear on Koffee With Karan, the actor said in Hindi, “Not now. I don’t think they will invite me now. I’ll have to achieve a lot for that, Rs 150 crore or Rs 200 crore movies. They won’t call me on this level. You need good work or a big name to appear on Koffee With Karan.”
