Ever since the never – ending dispute between Kapil Sharma and Sunil Grover got foul, a lot of major characters of The Kapil Sharma Show including – Sunil Grover, Ali Asgar, Chandan Prabhakar have quit the show. Their exit has affected the TRPs of the show.
Kapil Sharma has been trying really hard to keep the show running by bringing in new characters but nothing is working out. People are not accepting Kapil Sharma’s show like they used to earlier. One of the reasons can be that they don’t find it funnier anymore without Sunil Grover and others.
Amidst all this, there were reports of Salman Khan’s Dus Ka Dum replacing the show. There were also reports that Sunil Grover has been offered a show of his own by the Sony TV. It was also reported that the channel had given an ultimatum to Kapil Sharma for improving the ratings of his show, failing which the contract worth Rs 107 crores will not be renewed.
However, The Kapil Sharma Show will not be going off air anytime soon. Reportedly, the show has been given a two-month extension since the channel had to postpone their upcoming show, Dus Ka Dum. A leading tabloid reported that Salman Khan, who will probably host Dus Ka Dum, is not available to host the show this year due to his hectic schedule. Due to this, Kapil has got an extension of two months for his show on Sony TV channel. He does need to buck up to gain more TRPs in the coming weeks and months. Salman is currently busy with Tubelight promotions and is also finishing his Dubai schedule for Tiger Zinda Hai.
Thanks to Bhai’s hectic schedule, the comedian has got one more chance to save his show.
Salman has already started shooting for Tiger Zinda Hai with Katrina Kaif. So the makers of Dus Ka Dum have pushed the show’s schedule to January 2018. That’s how the channel could allow Kapil more time to run his show. Even though Kapil managed to get a couple of new faces to be a part of the show, the ratings are not that impressive.
Like we told you before, last week’s TRPs went up to nearly 4 million impressions from 3.4 million the week before. As its peak, the show garnered an average six million impressions. The recent Arjun Kapoor- Shraddha Kapoor episode evoked a positive response. We will have to wait and watch for at least a fortnight if the upward trend continues. The Kapil Sharma Show has been in the news for all the right and wrong reasons. More than a comedy show, The Kapil Sharma Show has become more of a controversial show.
His fight with Sunil won a negative reputation and it’s sad because his show used to garner the highest TRPs.
Only time will tell the show’s fate.
Do you think Kapil will be able to buck up and get back on his feet till the extension? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
