Kapil Sharma made his comeback in his witty trademark manner via 'The Kapil Sharma Show', and the new TV show not only regaled the small screen audience but also got a rousing response in the virtual world.
Kapil had to abruptly leave a successfully running show 'Comedy Nights With Kapil' on Colors due to a fallout with the channel. But he walked back on the small screen with his gang -- Sunil Grover, Ali Asgar, Kiku Sharda, Sumona Chakravarti and Chandan Prabhakar -- over the weekend.
The show, which is aired on Sony Entertainment Television, got over 1,00,000 tweets from fans across the globe and got over 10 million impressions.
One of the users wrote: "Kapil Sharma, amazing episode of 'The Kapil Sharma Show'. I couldn't stop laughing! We missed you and your cast a lot! You made my day", while another shared, "Kapil Sharma, great come back brother. I was freaking fed up without your show... Now we have our oxygen back and breathe better by laughing".
Viral Jani, head, TV Partnerships, Twitter India, is also impressed with the response.
"This weekend, fans across India expressed their joy with Kapil and his team's comeback, sharing real-time tweets, images and videos on Twitter while they watched the show. The show generated over 1,08,000 conversations in two days, one of the most spoken about TV premieres in recent times," Jani said in a statement.
Humbled by this outpouring of love for him, Kapil thanked his followers on Twitter.
