There is some good news for fans of comedian Kapil Sharma -according to an exclusive by indianexpress.com, Sharma is all set to make a comeback with The Kapil Sharma Show (albeit, the show will have a different name). The report confirmed that the Firangi actor is all set to make his comeback on Sony TV in March, for which he is also shooting the promo.
A source told the indianexpress.com, “Sony TV and Kapil recently had a meeting and discussed on the comeback of the show. With Kapil now fit and fine, he is raring to go, and entertain his audience in his own inimitable style. The promo that is being shot today would be just an announcement, and a full-fledged one would be shot after the creatives are finalized. The show is expected to launch by end of March.”

Danish Khan, Sony EVP, and Business Head has denied there being any animosity between the channel and the star. Khan told indianexpress.com, “There’s Kapil as an artist, a person, and a show. As a channel, we are really proud of the artist and TKSS has been one of our most successful shows. When a person shoots continuously for one and a half years, they do go through ups and downs. We are no one to comment on his personal life but for us, he has delivered a good show and has been spreading smiles among our audience for a long time. And that keeps us really happy.”
Though Sunil Grover won’t be part of the show, we can expect to see the remaining cast and even a few new members joining Kapil on the show. “No, Sunil is not coming back. The remaining cast of The Kapil Sharma Show will be part of the series while there can be some new addition also. The title of the show has also not being finalized. But Kapil and the makers are working hard to make this a bigger and better project,” added the source.
In August, last year, Sharma had announced to take a break from the show. In a statement, he had said, “I am deeply touched by the warmth and love the audience has showered on us over the years. It’s their belief and undying devotion that encourages us to continue to reinvent ourselves and bring smiles to every household week on week. I am grateful to Sony Entertainment Channel for believing in me and our show and supporting us in creating and bringing unlimited entertainment to every household every weekend.”

In March 2017, Sharma got into a brawl with co-actor Sunil Grover, where he allegedly hurled a shoe at him. As reports of the controversy proliferated, Sharma apologised Grover through his Twitter handle. Grover didn’t take objection to his behavior and advised the comedian to handle his fame in a better way. Sharma then spiraled into alcohol addiction and depression, even cancelled shoots often. In time, he checked himself into a rehabilitation and thereafter, worked on his movie Firangi. Though the movie flopped at the box-office, Sharma might regain balance with his staple talk show.
