A rival show to comedian Kapil Sharma's new show is being launched by Kapil’s former girlfriend and colleagues. The stand-up comedy show, titled Kanpur Wale Khuranas starring Kapil Sharma’s erstwhile team of Sunil Grover, Ali Asgar and Upasna Singh will be modelled on The Kapil Sharma Show and will have celebrity guests, confirmed India West News.
The producers of the show will be Neeti and Preeti Simoes. Interestingly, Preeti Simoes is the former girlfriend of Kapil Sharma and was the producer of The Kapil Sharma Show before they finally broke up. Neeti is Preeti's sister and they work as a team.
All the former team members of The Kapil Sharma show -- like Ali Asgar, Upasana Singh and Sunil Grover -- have also joined the same reality show which will have a comic flavour too.
Kunal Khemmu has confirmed that he will be anchoring the television reality show instead of signing more Bollywood movies. Insiders say that Preeti's show will be launched in the same time slot as that of new Kapil Sharma show and it is meant to be a rival show.
Though many are terming the show as a "revenge show", sources say that this show has been on the cards for a long time now.
