Mumbai: The Kapil Sharma Show will not be Kapil's show alone. No longer he will be the pivot and backbone of the show. Kapil has to blame himself for this.
For all practical purposes, Raju Sirivasatava has replaced Sunil (Dr Mashoor Gulati, Rinku Bhabhi) in the show. Raju has reportedly said that he is not a one-show man, and is here to stay.
“Yes, I have started shooting for this show. The channel and the team are happy with the episodes I have shot for them and have called me for more episodes,” Raju told a news channel.“This time, I have been called for an act. I don’t know how the channel is going to represent my character or my acts to the audience. But this is true that I’m shooting for the show and will feature in the show as a ‘new entry’," he added.
Apart from Sunil, Chandan Prabhakar and Ali Asgar too have boycotted Kapil. They are likely to be replaced with Ehsaan Qureshi and Sunil Pal.
This is a double-edged sword for Kapil. One, the Raju-Sunil, Ehsaan trio failed to tickle the funny bones of viewers. Second, with so many veterans, Kapil will have to share the limelight, which he may not like.
