Kapil Sharma’s efforts in trying to bring back the charm of the show, after the much-loved cast of Sunil Grover, Chandan Prabhakar, Ali Asgar and Sugandha Mishra boycotted the show.
Kapil replaced Sunil with Raju Shrivastav who was a guest performer and now has become a permanent fixture on the comedy show. Last night, he called Kiku Sharda and Sumona Chakravarti, who have been with him since Comedy Nights with Kapil, to shoot a few gags. Raju was there too.
Source quoted to SpotBoye, “Bas kuch theek hi nahi lag raha tha. Sab kuch itna alag ho gaya hai yahan pe.” The comic timing and laughs were looking forced. Even Kapil Sharma felt that way, so he called off the shoot.
When SpotBoye contacted Kiku, he was in no mood to talk and said: “What rubbish! Why are you asking me about this?”
Even the show’s director Sahib did not deny the development, instead asking the website to contact the studio or Kapil Sharma. He said, “Why don’t you call up the production house K9 or Kapil himself to talk on this?”
While Kapil publicly apologised to Sunil, the latter lashed out at the actor in a Twitter post. Sunil has since maintained silence on whether he would join the show or not. He is set to perform in Delhi today, as Dr Mashoor Gulati, his character from The Kapil Sharma Show. This will mark his first public appearance post the controversy.
