The makers are yet to confirm about Sunil Grover’s upcoming show but that has not stopped a million speculations from thriving . Months after he quit The Kapil Sharma Show following an infamous inflight fight with the star comedian, Sunil is all set to make a comeback on the small screen and many are saying that his show may replace Kapil’s.

According to reports, Sunil will have his own show, where Ali Asgar, Sugandha Mishra and Kiku Sharda will also join him. Krushna Abhishek may also join the trio. Krushna’s show The Drama Company may go off air and Sunil’s new show will most probably replace it, according to an NDTV report. Interestingly, this means that instead of Sunil and Kapil joining forces again, Sunil may get the slot on which Kapil Sharma Show was earlier telecast.

Kapil, however, remains optimistic. Asked about Sunil’s likely return, Kapil had told DNA, “Why not?” He added, “It

is their show as much as mine. You don’t need anyone’s permission to come home.”

"Mujhe samajh mein nahin aata yeh sab kaise hua (I don’t understand why things went wrong). It all happened too quickly to me. My show became a source of happiness and laughter for the entire country. I felt blessed. Usske baad lagta hai kisiki nazar lag gayi. My health suffered. All kinds of nasty rumours were spread about me. I never bothered to clarify or correct the misreports about me. I guess, some people took advantage of my silence,” he went on to say.

Since Sunil’s exit, the popular television comedy show’s TRP took a major beating. Coupled with that, Kapil’s health problems meant that the show would not remain the same. Many shoots were cancelled and stars like Shah Rukh Khan and Ajay Devgn had to leave without shooting. There were rumours that the show would be taken off air.

That happened in September when TKSS was finally taken off air and The Drama Company replaced it on prime-time slot at 9pm. But now when The Drama Company’s contract is ending, it looks like Sunil is on his way back, with or without Kapil.
