Kapil Sharma was not so famous until of course the comedian started hosting a starry chat TV show with a comic angle on Colors TV. Next, ‘Comedy Nights With Kapil’ became a household name and Kapil Sharma, the talk of the town.
Kapil Sharma and the Success of CNWK
From the kids to the oldies, everybody stayed glued to watch the chat show and honestly, there was no way one could ignore this comedy show or its host Bittu Sharma essayed by Kapil Sharma.
Though he was shammed for his sexiest jokes (We have few articles criticizing Kapil Sharma for his sexiest remarks), he was overall applauded for being funny.
Nevertheless, both, Kapil Sharma and the channel Colors TV benefited from Comedy Nights With Kapil. While the channel got great TRPs and ensured that Indians across different states stay glued only to Colors on weekends, Kapil Sharma became a brand in himself.
The High and High of Kapil Sharma
Kapil Sharma with the concept of the programme and his antics soon became stars favourite and almost all the Bollywood biggies started taking stage with the comedian to promote their upcoming films. From Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan to Salman Khan, and filmmakers like Ekta Kapoor, Karan Johar and Imtiaz Ali graced the stage.
Kapil Sharma not just won the likes of celebrities but also the heart of the viewers who soon became his fans. Next, the comedian also turned hero when he was offered a Bollywood film. His film did good at the box office, further strengthening his position.
When Friends Became Rival – The Maha Breakup of Colors TV and Kapil Sharma
While Kapil Sharma became a star, we cannot deny the fact that the real reason of his success was the show and the solid support team he had in the form of Sunil Grover (Gutthi), Ali Asgar (Daadi), Kiku Sharda (Palak), Sumona Chakravarthy (Bittu’wife) and even the prence of Navjot Singh Siddhu. This is the reason why fans were shocked to hear that CNWK will end soon as Kapil Sharma wanted to make an exit.
While many of us assumed that Kapil wants to make an exit because of his Bollywood career, later it came out in the open that the real reason is something else.
Well, it seems that both Colors and Kapil is having issues from quite sometime now. A source close to them revealed how Kapil Sharma is demanding an exorbitant amount which the channel is not ready to pay him. This reason lead to major differences between the two which ultimately made them decide to go separate ways. The aftereffect is so bad that the channel now doesn’t want to dedicate any of their future show in the name of any one person though they will keep ‘Comedy Nights’ brand alive.
Kapil Sharma Will Soon Be Seen In Another Channel Hosting a Comedy Show
Kapil Sharma fans need not worry as Kapil will be seen in another comedy show on another rival channel.
This is what a source close to Kapil Sharma and CNWK had to say,
“Kapil has struck a good deal with a rival channel of Colors that has been trying hard to beat them in the TRP charts. Ali Asgar is definitely going with Kapil and will not be seen on Comedy Nights, but Navjot Singh Siddhu has agreed to stay back.”
When Sunil Grover was asked whether he too will join Kapil Sharma in his new project, the comedian said,
“The channel has not confirmed so far. We have to see how things progress. A new channel will have a new team and things will be affected by that. It is too early to comment.”
The Real Reason Behind the Maha Breakup
A source close to Kapil Sharma and Colors team confirmed that the rift between Colors and Kapil Sharma was mainly because of money. However he added that since the TRPs of Comedy Nights With Kapil was almost on par with other comedy show on the same channel, ‘Comedy Nights Bachao’, the channel decided not to continue with Kapil, who was asking for a HUGE amount.
Well, looks like all the Kapil fans will now have to wait for a while, till their favourite host gets another platform ‘ready’ to entertain them. Will the upcoming show on another channel do as good as CNWK? Well, only time will tell….
