Kapil Sharma has started shooting for the new season of his comedy talk show ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’. The upcoming season of the show will feature Kapil’s old friends and famous comedians Sudesh Leheri, Krushna Abhishek, Kiku Sharda, Bharti Singh and Chandan Prabhakar. Reportedly, the show will make a comeback in August on the Sony Entertainment Television channel.
On July 18, Kapil took to Instagram and shared a series of photos with his gang. All artists can be seen dressed up in black attires.”new beginning with all the old faces#tkss #thekapilsharmashow #blessings #gratitude #comingsoon,” he captioned the post. After hearing the news, social media users expressed their happiness. “The best show ever is coming back,” a netizen commented. “Wow….was eagerly waiting for the new season,” another one wrote.
While fans wait with bated breath for the new season of the show, Bharti Singh who is currently hosting the reality show ‘Dance Deewane 3’ informed that she had to accept the pay cut of her usual remuneration for the upcoming season of ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’.
She later even confirmed it to an entertainment portal and added that the entire crew had to take a pay cut.
While talking to TOI, Bharti said, “I guess everyone felt the pinch when they were asked to take a pay cut, and I was no exception. I also negotiated a lot over it. However, when I reflected on the recent times and what has unfolded in the last year, I realised itna kaam band ho gaya hai (work has stopped). TV and shows ko sponsors nahi mil rahe hain toh channels kahaan se paisa laayein.”
Expressing her opinion, Bharti added that the technicians should get full payment even when artists don’t. “Itne saal hum ek channel par kaam karte hain aur woh hamaari har baat maante hain, toh aaj jab woh saamne se help maang rahe hain toh mujhe nahi lagta hai ki kisi bhi artiste ne mana kiya hoga (They listened to us and fulfilled all our requests and demands when things were fine. Now that they are asking for help, I don’t think anyone will say no). I know sabke paise cut rahe hain. I feel jo set pe technicians hain, unke paise nahi cut nahi karne chahiye. We are working together and trying our best to stay afloat. So, I don’t think anyone had an issue in taking a pay cut.”
Meanwhile, Kapil Sharma recently shared another photo with the ‘TKSS’ gag and informed his fans that all the cast members of the show had received their shots of the COVID-19 vaccine.
