Mumbai, March 1 (IANS) Come April and Kapil Sharma will be back with his brand of comedy on the small screen with his squad, including Sunil Grover and Ali Asgar. The star comedian says his aim has always been to spread happiness, and he hopes to do the same with "The Kapil Sharma Show".
The first episode of the show will be shot with a live audience as an event in Delhi.
"Me and my team are overwhelmed with the kind of love India has showered on us. Our aim has always been to bring a smile to everyone and with 'The Kapil Sharma Show', we wish to do just that," Kapil said in a statement.
The show will now be aired on Sony Entertainment Television starting April 23. Other cast members on the show are Kiku Sharda, Navjot Singh Sidhu, Sumona Chakravarti and Chandan Prabhakar.
Produced by K9 and Frames Production, the show promises to provide unlimited, unadulterated and spur-of-the-moment entertainment.
Before the premiere of the show, fans will get a chance to interact with their favourite stars as they embark on an entertaining journey with a multi-city tour. Starting at Amritsar on March 5, Kapil and his gang will move to Bhopal (March 11), Lucknow (March 16) and Delhi (first week of April).
Danish Khan, executive vice president and business head of the channel, said: "It is a family show, which we hope will become a habitual dinner-time ritual for families across Indian homes."
It comes as a reason for Kapil's fans to rejoice, especially after his show "Comedy Nights With Kapil" had come to an end on Colors following a clash between Kapil and the channel. (IANS)
