Nothing trumps depression like self-deprecation, and comedian Kapil Sharma’s new promo for his ‘comeback’ show proves just the same.
In an industry overwrought with vanity, Kapil has chosen to take a dig at himself by announcing his return to Television in a hilarious manner.
The star comedian has poked fun at himself in the promo. He clearly comes across as a humbled man. Not that he ever smacked of arrogance but we feel this break from the arc lights has done him a world of good. He looks happy and relaxed. This Kapil Sharma is lot like the one we knew from his Comedy Circus days.
Check out the promo…

2017 was a difficult year for Kapil Sharma. A mid-air brawl with good friend Sunil Grover had resulted in a bitter fall-out followed by a casting-exodus from his show. Later, Kapil fell prey to depression and alcoholism and perplexed his showrunners with his last-moment shooting cancellations and health concerns. Deciding to give him a much-needed break, the channel eventually withdrew ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’ from the airwaves. The year concluded with a lukewarm response to his feature film venture Firangi, which was panned for its sluggish narrative and bland humour.
Well, looks like Kapil has finally decided to put the past behind him and make a fresh start. We can’t help but applaud the star comedian for his spirit and hope that the new show turns out to be bigger, better and funnier.
