Kapil Sharma has been a household name for years now. His one of a kind comedy show, Comedy Nights With Kapil got him immense popularity as a comedian which aired back in 2013 on Colors. Though he was the winner of The Great India Laughter Challenge, his struggle in the industry went on long. But everything became worth it when his comedy career kickstarted with his new show. After a couple of years, Kapil had a tiff with the channel and brought his revamped show on Sony TV with the title, The Kapil Sharma Show. It was then, real problems for him began to rise. His controversies with his fellow comedian Sunil Grover is not unknown to any for the two washed their dirty linen in public, in huge attendance. But now, Kapil will soon strike back with his new comedy show reportedly with the same name on Sony TV.
The interesting thing is that when he piloted the first episode of The Kapil Sharma Show, he invited Shah Rukh Khan as his first guest and this time around also, the reports suggest that Shah Rukh Khan will again be the one to grace the first episode of Kapil Sharma’s comeback show. Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma may also accompany King Khan as all of them will be promoting their upcoming movie, Zero around at that time.
The show is bankrolled by none other than Salman Khan. It will air as early as on 23rd December this year and the format will be the same where celebrity guests would be invited for movie promotions and for other stuff. A source close to the team was quoted as saying,
“A new set is being built at Mumbai’s Film city studios for the shoot. The set will have houses and a marketplace where the various characters will interact.”
Well, of course, Sunil Grover will not be a part of the core team, given the circumstances but many will be coming back to share the small screen together. Kapil’s new team consists of Chandan Prabhakar, Kiku Sharda, Sumona Chakravarti, Krushna Abhishek, and Bharti Singh.
This will definitely be a second innings for Kapil as this past year and a half had just surrounded him in controversies about his off beam behavior, alcoholism, and negative publicity. But after a long time, he seems to be getting back. Just recently, he also confirmed his wedding. He will be tying the knot with his long-time girlfriend Ginni Chatrath on December 12th, 2018 with whom he made his relationship official last December and introduced her to his fans on social media. He shared a couple of wedding details with the media and said,
“We wanted to keep it a low key. But Ginni is the only daughter in her family. Her folks wanted the wedding to be on a lavish scale. And I completely understand their sentiments. My mother also wants the wedding to be lavish.”
The lady luck seems to have worked in his favor and we hope, everything works for him this time and he doesn’t ruin it himself.
Soon, Sunil Grover, his arch rival will come with his show in 2019 for which the title isn’t yet decided. Sure, there will be an underlined competition between the two for two of Kapil’s former team members, Ali Asgar and Upasana Singh reportedly have joined hands with Sunil Grover. But we hope this time, both keep it to a healthy competition. Other than that, we would be more than happy to see SRK as the first guest on The Kapil Sharma Show 2.0.
