It’s been more than a month since the mid-air brawl between Kapil Sharma and his colleagues, wherein the much inebriated comedian yelled at his co-stars for a petty thing. Since then, things have been so topsy turvy for Kapil that it’s beyond believable. Sunil Grover, Ali Asgar and Chandan Prabhakar have quit the show, and if reports are anything to go by, the TRPs of The Kapil Sharma Show have fallen prey to the law of gravity.
Brushing that aside, recently Kapil Sharma was accused of having copied his jokes from another show. If that was not enough, there came the news of Sunil Grover having started a new initiative along with other Comedy Nights comedians. And the latest controversy is – that apparently, the new entrant on Kapil’s show named Monica Castelino is an adult film actress. While nobody should dig into an actress’ past, the question sprouting everywhere is that – IS THIS A DESPERATE MEASURE TO BRING THE FALLING TRPs BACK TO THE TOP?
Recently, goss had it that Sony TV has thrashed Kapil Sharma, refusing to renew his contract with them that was worth crores – since his show’s TRPs had suddenly crashed. Kapil, in a bid to save his faltering career, even requested Sunil Grover to return, but the latter refused. Following his refusal, a bunch of sleazy jokes were used in the show (for the first time) to bring the numbers back.
The subtle sleaze comedy did stir up some uproar given the fact that it was always meant to be a family comedy show. To top it up, now the onset of Monica Castelino, whose past as an adult film star, is hardly the perfect resume for adding to the laughter dose on the sets of The Kapil Sharma Show, has put Kapil Sharma in a soup once again!
God save the show!
