‘Comedy Nights with Kapil’ TRPs drop in Kapil’s absence


The episodes of the popular show ‘Comedy Nights with Kapil’aired on the last two Sundays in the  absence of comedian Kapil Sharma, witnesses a considerable fall in its TRPs, reports said. Each of the two episodes was guest-hosted by actor Arshad Warsi and filmmaker Sajid Khan, both known for their comic sense.  

Kapil had taken a break from the show after suffering a slip disc. After recuperating, the stand-up comedian was touring the US with his team. He had even shared pictures of his performance in Hamilton on Twitter and wrote, Feeling blessed...12 thousand people in Hamilton...Can’t believe...Stay happy.”

However, in an effort to rescue the show from its falling TRPs, Kapil has been rushed back from the US to pick up lost threads. “The last two episodes when Arshad Warsi and Sajid Khan substituted for Kapil, never quite took off. Kapil has been summoned back for some urgent recording,” a DNA report quoted a source as saying.

Kapil flew down to Mumbai on Thursday night, August 6, and immediately resumed shooting for the show. The comedian will reappear on ‘Comedy Nights with Kapil’ tonight, August 9.

Meanwhile, Kapil will be making his Bollywood debut with Abbas-Mustan’s ‘Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon’ which is slated to release on September 25.
