The shoot for Kapil Sharma’s new show on Sony TV has reportedly started as the comedian actor gears up for a return to TV in a style. The guest list for his inaugural show is going to Salman Khan, his actor brother Arbaaz Khan and Dad Salim Khan. By roping in Salman, who’s currently hosting the reality show Bigg Boss every week is nothing less than a coup for Kapil given the age-old rivalry between the Sony TV and Colors.
In his new series of The Kapil Sharma Show, Kapil will be joined by most of his old teammates such as Chandan Prabhakar, Kiku Sharda, Rochelle Rao and Sumona. Also joining him will be Bharti Singh and Krushna Abhishek, with whom he hasn’t had a cordial relationship in the past.
