The Kapil Sharma Show: Five moments from its recent episode that prove it has no future without Sunil Grover

Kapil took no time to quip early in the show, “I just talk, but people turn that into gossip (

Main sirf baat karta hoon, log baatein bana lete hain

).” We look at five moments that prove that The Kapil Sharma Show has no future without Sunil Grover.


Kapil took it upon himself to replace Sunil Grover’s avatar of Dr Mashoor Gulati on the show. Kapil donned the character of Sumona Chakravarti’s uncle and tried his best to bring in the same quirkiness. He cracked some jokes that fell flat and lacked the genuine humour and levity. Kapil, unlike his usual witty and self-assured self, seemed to be dabbling and cracking jokes that looked unrehearsed. Like Dr Mashoor Gulati, Kapil tried to indulge in some quirky activities (unlike Gulati, Kapil tried to manage the customers of a salon too) but failed to bring in the same sense of humour.


The supporting cast had a field day in the absence of its core characters. Kapil had to rely on the mediocre talent of Sumona and Rochelle Rao to entertain the audience. Rochelle got a large part to play in yesterday’s episode and we wonder if that was intentional. We also saw an additional character.
