The Kapil Sharma Show is going through a tough time. Although it returned on air after a long hiatus a couple of months ago with promises of delivering fresh and new content, the comedy show has failed to meet the expectations. There is nothing whatsoever, in the star cast, punches, and content of the show. Bharti Singh, Kiku Sharda, Krushna Abhishek, and even Kapil Sharma are doing the same run-of-the-mill comic acts which the viewers have seen them doing repeatedly on television for almost a decade now.
While the stars continue to grace The Kapil Sharma Show to promote their movies and web series, fans are now more interested in watching music or dance reality shows that air simultaneously on other channels. Family dramas and comedy serials like Anupamaa, Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah air even on Saturday making the competition tough for TKSS.
Fans now want the show to undergo some new change, add some spice and masala instead of the same ghise-pite punches and jokes. On the other hand, the OTT platform is offering some good quality comedy content with movie stars entertaining the viewers with their perfect comic timing.
Be it Engineering Girls, College Daze, or Chaalo Koi Baat Nahi, these comedy series and shows on OTT platforms have fresh content that the millennials find more tuned in with their mindset. In such a tough competition survival is going to be tough for The Kapil Sharma Show.
Only some major changes in its format or the addition of novelty can do the magic to make it the topmost comedy show that it once was. Many believe that the return of Sunil Grover can do the trick for this show because almost every fan of TKSS wants to see Kapil and Sunil share the stage once again and entertain them.
