Kapil Sharma is all set to return to the small screen by mid-March with his new show, Family Time With Kapil Sharma which will replace Shilpa Shetty, Anurag Basu and Geeta Kapur’s kids dance show Super Dancer in the weekend slot.
Unlike The Kapil Sharma Show which went off the air abruptly in last September, this one will be a mix of comedy and games. A source close to the development says that Kapil will start off with a stand-up comedy act, followed by a segment where he will invite families to play games with him. “The winning families will get to take home household items as well as cars. Kiku Sharda who was part of the earlier show will return in a woman’s avatar. Chandan Prabhakar comes back as Kapil’s aide to host the game segment. Contrary to rumours, Ali Asgar isn’t on board yet.”
The source adds that the channel is working on an innovative strategy to announce the comedian’s comeback with a big event. Kapil had been in talks with the channel since January and after several meetings they greenlit the new show.
Kapil Sharma was at the pinnacle of glory and everything seemed to go right for the actor-comedian until his mid-air brawl with co-actor Sunil Grover made headlines. After getting embroiled in controversies and avoiding the limelight for quite a while, Kapil is all set to leave behind those turbulent times and make a comeback with the loudest bang! After enthralling the audience with Comedy Nights with Kapil and The Kapil Sharma Show, the Firangi actor is all set to ensue laughter riots with Family Time With Kapil Sharma. While the early promos and teaser of the show have already tickled our funny bones, Kapil Sharma decided to kick off his new project with a new vanity van.
