After setting television sets in India on fire with his brand of comedy in Comedy Nights with Kapil, India’s funniest host is likely to have a “street-based” theme, says actor Kiku Sharda.
Kapil played the central role of Bittu Sharma in Comedy Nights with Kapil, Ali Asgar was the cute Dadi, Sumona Chakravarti enacted the role of Kapil’s wife, Sunil Grover and Kiku Sharda played the annoying neighbours Gutthi and Palak, while Chandan Prabhakar was seen in the role of servant Raju.
After a successful two-and-a-half year stint on Colors, the show came to an end in January this year due a fall-out between Kapil and the channel. The same team will soon be back with new The Kapil Sharma Show on another channel and the set-up is also likely to change.
“This time not a family (set up)...it would be more like a street where people are living,” Kiku said. “There will be different people coming in. Like how Palak and Gutthi used to come on the show, they were not family. So, may be something like that,” he said, without divulging any details.
In the earlier show, Kiku played the role of a girl Palak. “The character (of Palak) was loved because people loved her style and attitude. We have not narrowed down on what exactly my character would be like on the new show.

“I am open to playing a woman again. I would like to explore lot of other things as well. On a daily basis, I interact with lot of new people and new ideas come to my head,” he said. The Kapil Sharma Show will go on air from April 23 on Sony channel.
