This will not be the first time that he and Sudesh will share the stage together, as the two have given multiple

“The show makers are confident about their comic timing and it will be a good boost for the show to begin with,” says a source, adding that the rest of the cast has not yet been decided. “There is a lot of brainstorming happening every day, as the creative team of the show is yet to decide the format and concept.”

It was earlier reported that Ali Asgar, Sugandha Mishra and Chandan Prabhakar, who were earlier with Kapil, might join the new show, tentatively titled Comedy Company.
