Kapil Sharma’s TV comeback The Kapil Sharma Show on April 23 on Sony Entertainment Television will face stiff competition from Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s widely lauded movie Bajirao Mastani. Colors will air the film instead of Comedy Nights Bachao.

Kapil came into the limelight through Comedy Nights With Kapil, which was replaced by Comedy Nights Live after the ace comedian had a falling out with Colors channel officials due to various reasons. Kapil is now coming up with The Kapil Sharma Show on Sony Entertainment Television.

While many were hoping there will be a competition of sorts between Kapil and his contemporaries - Krushna Abhishek and Bharti Singh, hosts of Comedy Nights Bachao - the Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon actor decided not to do so and changed the time slot of his show to 9 p.m.
