Kapil Sharma has spent months under the radar after a series of public meltdowns.

Kapil Sharma seems to be taking his comeback seriously. A new series of pictures of the comedian, who fell from grace after multiple instances of alleged unprofessionalism, working out to get back in shape have been shared online.

It is unclear exactly how old these pictures are, but considering their timing, the narrative remains in his favour. Kapil in a recent statement said that he was planning on making a return to television after being forced off air some months ago. In a statement to, Kapil said, “I can assure my fans that I will be back soon with another season of The Kapil Sharma Show. The show has the same effect on the viewers and it would really love to take it forward. However, it is at a very initial stage.”


The comedian had said recently that his focus remains on getting his health back in order, after several reports claimed that the reason for his unpredictable behaviour was due to his battle with alcohol and depression.

Kapil became a household name after his sketch comedy shows such as Comedy Nights with Kapil Sharma and The Kapil Sharma Show witnessed huge success. But while his professional career seemed to be soaring, his private life was reportedly falling apart. The comedian became notorious for cancelling shoots at the last moment, and abandoning his actor guests on set.

He took some time off and checked into a wellness clinic, but in recent sightings has appeared overweight and a shadow of his former self. He was photographed at an Amsterdam supermarket, and then on his return to Mumbai at the airport. A couple of his photos were also shared online. Kapil had quit Twitter following a public meltdown when he accused the press of being biased against him.
