In recent times, if there is someone who has represented the funny bone of middle class India with pride and panache, it is Kapil Sharma. His earlier show Comedy Nights With Kapil attained a cult status before it shut shop rather controversially. His legion of fans, including us, have been waiting for The Kapil Sharma Show. Here are some reasons why you should not miss the first episode.
You might scoff at us for listing this as a reason but there are zillions who missed the ace comedian on TV. Kapil Sharma is intelligent, articulate, goofy and knowledgeable. A good satirist draws humour from life around him and Kapil does just that. He is perfect for those who hate forcing smiles through slapstick or bathroom humour.
A source tells us that Kapil and his team have spared no efforts to make the first episode a memorable one. The singer will croon his favourite number Aankhon Ke Sagar, which has been sung by Shafqat Amanat Ali. Kiku Sharda, Sumona Chakravarti, Sunil Grover, Ali Asgar will make a surprise entry from the audience that goes berserk.
#Presence of Shah Rukh Khan
King Khan is the first celebrity guest on the show and it can’t get bigger than that. Kapil and SRK share an amazing camaraderie and that will be on full display. We know how witty and tongue-in-cheek SRK can be!
#Bromance between Kapil and SRK
As per reports, the two have pulled each other’s legs like anything during the episode. Since it is held in Delhi, SRK will be seen regaling audiences with anecdotes about his personal life in Delhi. Audiences will also get to know about his love story with Gauri.
#Kapil: The ladies man
The ace comedian has lost some weight and is looking smart. He will be seen turning on his charm on the ladies. Yes, we will reportedly see a flirtatious (and funny) side of him that will be a revelation for all.
#Ali Asgar as Begum
While his act of Daadi has gone down history books, Ali will be seen in a different avatar altogether. He will be dressed as Begum. SRK will be seen quoting a romantic dialogue from Jab Tak Hai Jaan for him.
#Sunil Grover as Suman
After Gutthi, Sunil is back as a lady cop Suman. We have seen him in the promos. SRK will do the Gerua dance with Sunil.
#Live Delhi audience
The first episode will play out before a live audience in Delhi. Before this, we have seen audiences in studios but this time the excitement will be multi-fold. The Delhi crowd loves a good laugh so it will be interesting to see the crowd chemistry.
#The Jabra dance
The actor’s film Fan released a week ago and pundits have raved about his performance. Sunil Grover will dress up as Gaurav from the film and do the Jabra dance with SRK.
#Kiku as Nawab
If Ali is going to be a Begum then Kiku will be a Nawab. We have seen his royal avatar in Akbar Birbal but this one promises to be zanier.
