The intention of all of us is to make you laugh heartily for years. And this time it should be even better and bigger with more fun-variety.

Sunil Grover: who sang an ad-lib rap on stage, said “Actually when we were on this long overseas- flight six years ago when at that point of time we learned about Netflix launching in India and we decided to do a “publicity stunt” to promote the show. That was a publicity stunt. !! It has always been a delight to be part of this show. Like my colleague Kiku mentioned this is one place where we don’t feel we are working. We feel blessed to be a part of this show. I personally feel blessed that I’m part of this show. We are always laughing even behind the scenes and we carry the same crazy masti-mazaak energy on stage. My sincere gratitude-- I thank everyone.

Krushna Abhishek

Krushna Abhishek: “We are delighted to be on Netflix this time so we thought of doing something absolutely new so I'm once again playing a ‘female character’ on the new show. But I will also be playing various screen avatars of top stars like Ranbir Kapoor in Animal and doing take-offs on popular top stars  We have discussed a lot about how we should bring different refreshing variety of hilarious characters. You’ll see Kiku and me playing amusing impactful characters, never seen before on TV,  as we have shot most of our acts together”.

Archana Puran Singh - Alchetron, The Free Social Encyclopedia

Archana Puran Singh: “Over the years TV Superstar Kapil has not changed and has remained grounded. All of us share the same personal bonding - rapport and mutual love and respect as before. In any entertainment content, the contribution of the writers is the biggest, especially in comedy. The most difficult task is to write for comedy which will make people laugh. These seasoned comedy stars like Kapil, Abhishek, Kiku, and Rajiv constantly improvise on stage and shine but the foundation of the show is the team of the Kapil show writers and we all salute and applaud their brilliant talent”
