Kapil Sharma has finally put an end to rumours surrounding his recent tweet where he was seen asking his followers about the English translation of ‘shubh samachar’. He had promised an auspicious news. Amid speculation that the comedian may announce his second child, Kapil has now shared a teaser video ahead of the launch of his new web series on Netflix.

Sharing the video on Twitter, Kapil wrote, “Don’t believe the rumours guys, only believe me. I’m coming on @NetflixIndia soon Star-struck. Partying face this is the auspicious news .” The hilarious video shows Kapil, dressed up in a tee, denims and a leather jacket, set to record the announcement video.


He is, however, seen struggling to pronounce the word ‘auspicious’. Despite his multiple attempts, he fails to correctly pronounce the word and that’s when the director suggests that he should instead record the video in Hindi. A relieved Kapil says, “Really? Well, anyway, I was almost prepared with English. But that’s okay. If Netflix themselves are so Indian, what’s the need for me to forcefully speak in English? So I will be coming on your TV, laptops and phones, that is on Netflix. This was the auspicious news.”
