Amid a lot of rib tickling humour, dancing and singing, ace comedian Kapil Sharma shot the first episode of his upcoming comedy show "The Kapil Sharma Show" here at the Indira Gandhi Stadium on Monday. Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan was the first guest on the show.
The special episode, which will be aired on Sony Entertainment Television on April 23, took the audience on a laughter ride and made them recall all the fun and madness that Kapil and his team -- Sunil Grover, Ali Asgar, Kiku Sharda, Sumona Chakravarti and Chandan Prabhakar -- used to do earlier on "Comedy Nights with Kapil".
As expected, the show started with Kapil making a grand entry through the crowd singing the popular song "Aankhon Ke Saagar" while greeting his fans all the way to the stage.
Kapil, who is making a comeback on TV with "The Kapil Sharma Show" and his co-stars were cheered by their fans, who came to see the show and Shah Rukh in large numbers.
While many were chanting names like "Gutthi", "Palak" and "Dadi" -- popular characters from "Comedy Nights with Kapil" -- the audience was in for a surprise when none of the actors played any of their previous roles and came out with fresh new parts that made them laugh throughout.
The only thing which did not look changed at all was former cricketer and BJP leader Navjot Singh Sidhu, who will appear as a permanent guest on this show as well. He was joined at the venue by BCCI secretary Anurag Thakur.
The enthusiasm among the audience went to a different level when Shah Rukh made his entry and started pulling Kapil's leg.
Shah Rukh, who appeared on the show for the promotion of his new film "Fan", even had a funny chat with the audience along with Kapil wherein the duo took a dig at the Odd-Even rule in Delhi.
It was followed by small acts of other actors. While Ali appeared as a courtesan asking Shah Rukh for a kiss, Kiku came in as the courtesan's husband and a nawab, and Sunil was seen as a women Haryanvi police officer.
During the show, Shah Rukh even shared some of his childhood memories and talked about his love life with his wife Gauri Khan.
The biggest moment of the night was when Sunil changed his getup on stage and appeared as Gaurav, Shah Rukh's character from "Fan". He started dancing on the song "Jabra Fan" and was joined by Shah Rukh and the audience.
