The fate of our favorite weekly dosage for laughter on TV has been under quite a bit of speculation since Kapil Sharma’s back injury. He publicy announced his leave from CNWK just a few days ago and while earlier buzz suggested filmmaker Karan Johar would be stepping into his shoes, a report in DNA confirms that two funny men have been roped in for the time being.
And they are.. (insert drum roll) Arshad Warsi & Sajid Khan. A source revealed to the leading daily, “Arshad and Sajid will shoot for two episodes each. Arshad shot with the Drishyam team on Monday. Sajid will be shooting his first episode with team Bangistan on Thursday, July 16.”
The report further mentions that the duo will also be shooting another episode of Comedy Nights soon. Buzz was that Arjun Kapoor, Riteish Deshmukh and Karan Johar too would be hosting a couple of episodes. However the trio have clearly rubbished all such rumours. “Riteish will be a part of the show to promote his film Bangistan. Arjun and Karan won’t be hosting it at all.”
So when will we see our favorite comedian back on the stage? “Nobody has a clue right now. The entire creative team and the family has been kept the same. The channel will just bring in few known faces to take the show ahead till Kapil’s return.”
