New Delhi :

If Comedy Nights host Kapil Sharma can make you laugh, his sibling is no less and has won laurels for saving many lives at Pathankot operations.

Not many know that the comedy king has a brother who fought the terrorists that attacked the Pathankot airbase on January 2.

In fact, you will be surprised to know that Ashok Kumar Sharma has been guarding the sensitive defence facility from the outside ever since.

Well-known comic Kapil Sharma's elder brother is a head constable with Amritsar rural police and takes his work very seriously.

He was among the 80 cops who were rushed to the spot.

As told to an English daily, “We were fighting for the first three days and did 20-hour shifts. With the gun battle over on third day all of us were under stress," he said.

He is very similar to Kapil but has put on little weight. He like his father serves in the Indian Army.

Their father Jatinder Kumar too was a cop and had died of cancer in 2004 while on duty as a sub-inspector with Punjab Police.

On being asked about his favourite actors, Ashok Kumar said Salman Khan and Alia Bhatt.
