Kapil Sharma’s on-screen wife Sumona Chakravarti quits smoking; shares an encouraging post on Instagram


Kapil Sharma’s on-screen wife Sumona Chakravarti, who was once addicted to smoking had quit cigarettes two years ago. In her Instagram post, the actress recently spoke about her struggle in quitting smoking wherein she explained the reason behind her writing is to give a ‘dose of reality’ into the world of social media.

In her post, Sumona mentioned that she quit smoking two years ago following a friend’s birthday and hasn’t touched a cigarette since then. According to the actress, it was difficult initially, but now, the situation is such that she can’t even stand in a room where people smoke. Sumona also expressed that people follow actors, like them, love them, criticize them and also admire them. With this post, she hopes to inspire people to give up this habit.


2 Years Ago! the week following a dear friend’s bday... I QUIT. Simply went cold turkey. No nicotine patch, no vape. Nothing. Haven’t touched since then. Was it difficult, hell yeah. But now my body rejects smoke. Cant stand in a room where ppl are smoking anymore. . “It is so hard to leave- Until you leave. And then it is the easiest goddamned thing in the world” - John Green . . Why am i sharing this? Because being an actor is a part of my life. People follow us. Like us. Love us. Criticise us. Admire us. Hopefully with this i can inspire a few. The most important reminder being we are all flawed human beings which is quite non existent on social media. So here’s a small dose of reality. #soonerthebetter #itsnevertoolate #allthatglittersisnotgold
