The 'comedy king' of Indian television, Kapil Sharma, who is all set to make a comeback with The Kapil Sharma Show shot for his first episode on Monday with none other than Bollywood's baadshah, the first guest on his new show.
The multi-talented Sharma, showcased his singing skills while greeting his fans inside the Indira Gandhi Indoor Stadium in New Delhi, reported The Indian Express.
Sharma's colleagues from Comedy Nights With Kapil were seen in a completely new avatar. According to India Today, Ali Asgar, who previously played the role of Dadi, appeared as a courtesan and asked Khan for a kiss; Kiku Sharda aka Palak was seen as the courtesan's husband and a nawab; and Sunil Grover, who previously played Gutthi was seen as a female Haryanavi police officer.
SRK, who was there to promote his upcoming movie Fan, shared a very funny and sweet memory from the time he was dating wife Gauri.
According to a MissMalini report, King Khan said, "Unlike today where we have mobile phones, earlier during our times there were only landline telephones. So whenever I wanted to talk to Gauri, I used to speak in a girl’s voice as her brother Vikrant used to pick the phone. I used to say, ‘Hello, can I please speak to Gauri’ in a girl’s voice and he used to think that I’m her female friend. Even till today he (Vikrant) doesn’t know that it was me who used to call every time. But after watching this episode he will get to know that."
The biggest moment of the night was when Grover changed his appearance on stage and appeared as Gaurav, SRK's character from Fan. He started dancing on the song 'Jabra Fan' and was joined enthusiastically by Khan as well as the audience.
After a successful and consistent run of two and a half years, the last episode of Comedy Nights With Kapil was aired on 24 January.
The first episode of The Kapil Sharma Show is slated to air at 9 pm, 23 April, on Sony TV.
