Kapila had a quiet, middle class low key childhood, growing up in north Delhi away from the glamour of the main city. Her idea of stable life was to study and build a stable life, she worked in many jobs but the tables turned when she took up the job at IDiva by times group— one of the largest media company she was a content creator and writer for. She wanted to be more accessible and less intellectual in her content which worked wonders when they came up with astonishingly realistic, mostly improvised spoofs of Delhi’s rich and elite, and made Kapila a sensation.
