Kapil Sharma readies for comeback with 'Comedy Style'
If media reports are to be believed, Kapil Sharma is gearing up to return to television with a new comedy-based show, ‘Comedy Style’. Sharma is reportedly teaming up with ‘Comedy Nights with Kapil Sharma’ co-star Sunil Grover, aka Gutthi, for the new show.
As per media reports, Sharma is in talks with both Sony TV and Star Plus for ‘Comedy Style’. As per a report on ibnlive.com, the show is expected to commence by mid-2016.
As is known, ‘Comedy Nights with Kapil Sharma’ went off air on January 24, 2016 when Sharma and Colors parted ways due to some disagreements.
Meanwhile, Colors has filled the 10 pm slot with ‘Comedy Nights Live’ and has got on board Krushna Abhishek as the show’s lead host. The show, which went on air on January 31, 2016, has been under intense scrutiny as it replaces the hugely popular ‘Comedy Nights with Kapil Sharma’.
Gauging by the reactions to ‘Comedy Nights Live’ on Twitter, the show will have a tough time to come out of the shadows of its much-loved predecessor.
‘Comedy Nights Live’ follows the same format of ‘Comedy Nights with Kapil Sharma’, has the same set, has celebrity guests promoting their new releases. What has changed is the family. Instead of Bittoo Sharma and his crazy family, there is Krushna Abhishek and Bharti Singh. Navjot Singh Sidhu has been replaced by singer Mika Singh.
Audiences took to Twitter to voice their disappointment over ‘Comedy Nights Live’, which featured Madhuri Dixit in its first episode. Following are some of the tweets:
Chirag Gupta @ChiragG14: “Rather than respecting the team of #CNWK in the 1st episode of #ComedyNightsLIVE they try to bring them down? Hypocrisy at it's best!”
