Kapil Sharma & gang return in style with new show


Stand-up comedian Kapil Sharma is all set to return on television and entertain fans with a new show in a new avatar. The funny man has been maintaining a stoic silence after Colors channel decided to replace his popular show with ‘Comedy Nights Live’ hosted by Krushna Abhishek.

The new show will reportedly air on Sony TV and will start by mid-2016. The new team comprises more or less of the old cast – Ali Asgar, Kiku Sharda, Sunil Grover, Chandan Prabhakar, Sumona Chakravarti and others. Pictures from the promo have found their way online and the all of them are seen in black suits.

It is also said that the first episode of the show will feature the Bollywood Baadshah Shah Rukh Khan who will promote his film ‘Fan’. Arjun Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor will also appear to promote R. Balki’s ‘Ki and Ka.’ Virat Kohli and Saina Nehwal have also been reportedly finalized and will shoot 'welcome back' promos.

It was also reported that the new show is titled ‘Comedy Style’, but Kapil dodged the question when a fan asked him about it during a Twitter chat.

In the promo video, Kapil is seen alighting from a helicopter and then walking with his team members--Kiku Sharda, Ali Asgar, Sunil Grover, Chandan Prabhakar, and Sumona Chakravarty--in style. They are all dressed in black suits. They also do Kapil’s famous pose ‘Babaji ka thullu’. Navjot Singh Sidhu comes as a surprise factor in the video.

Speaking about the new show and the promo they shot for it, funny man Kapil told ABP Live, "Ganpati baba ki mehar rahegi hamare oopar bhi. Bahut hi achcha show lekar aa rahe hain aur ummeed hai ki logon ko pasand aayega."

Kapil added that the promo might look stylish, but he and his team will still play down-to-earth characters.

Sony TV's India CEO NP Singh also confirmed that the ace comedian will make a comeback in a few months' time on their channel. "You will see Kapil soon on Sony TV in a few months' time," Singh was quoted by Indiantelevision.com.
