Comedy shows have become money spinners, and TV stars are rubbing shoulders with some of the best paid Bollywood stars when it comes to remunerations. Kapil Sharma charges a whopping Rs 60 to 80 lakhs per episode while co-actor Sunil Grover takes home another Rs.10 to 12 lakh per episode.
The show of late has also become a platform for stars to create a buzz for their forthcoming release. It is a symbiotic relationship with both accruing benefits. This week Sonakshi Sinha was the celebrity guest and as usual, she was promoting her next flick Akira. As usual, Kapil laid his heart on the floor and as usual, it went in vain.
The Dabangg girl looked ravishing as usual, and the glow on her face hints that she is confident that her next release will do well at the box office. Akira is a thriller and Sonakshi has done most of the stunts herself. Her physique also points to this fact. From the buxom village dame in Dabangg, the girl has come a long way to metamorphose into a hot star.
Watch the entire episode here.
The saddest part of the show was the fact that Sonakshi tied a rakhi and with it went into fumes all the plans of Kapil to flirt with the Dabangg star. Interestingly she tied Rakhi last year also when Kapil came as a judge in the Indian Idol Juniors shows.
The highlight of the show was the play-acting of Sunil Grover and Kapil Sharma. Kapil brought in a new character in the form of Rajesh Arora, cousin brother of Dr. Mashoor Gulati and he brought the house down. The amity between both the “cousin brothers” was side-splitting.
The episode also saw the entry of ‘Zanjeer’ Kapil’s Labrador. There was a foot tapping performance of the ex-Indian Idol Junior contestant and singer of Raj Raj Ke from Akira. The show wound up with Sonakshi asking everybody to watch Akira. Akira is scheduled for a release on September 2, 2016.
