When the news broke earlier this week that Krushna Abhishek would soon have his own show on Sony, the obvious question was if his partner of years, Sudesh Lehri would join him or not. While Ali Asgar and Chandan Prabhakar are confirmed on board, Sunil Grover's involvement in Comedy Company is still in negotiation stages.

There is no surprise in this one, after all their’s has been an unbreakable and one of the most formidable comic pairings on Indian television. So, when the news broke earlier this week that Krushna Abhishek would soon have his own show on Sony, the obvious question was if his partner of years, Sudesh Lehri would join him or not. Now, within days it has been confirmed that the duo will indeed share the stage on the new show, whose working title is Comedy Company.

The show is expected to also have Sunil Grover, Ali Asgar and Chandan Prabhakar. While Ali and Chandan are confirmed on board, Sunil’s involvement is still in negotiation stages. “Talks are on and there is some time to have a confirmation on whether he will be on the show or not,” a source close to the development told

Even as a confirmation is awaited, it is clear that Sunil, Ali and Chandan are not returning to The Kapil Sharma Show, for which they stopped shooting since April. Sunil and Kapil, touted as one of the most powerful comedian duo on television, fought on a flight back to India from Australia few months back. The fight was considered quite ugly after reports surfaced that Kapil threw a shoe at his co-star. It was also reported that Kapil was rude to Ali and Chandan. Since then the three comedians haven’t been on the show despite Kapil issuing a public apology and requesting Sunil to come back.

        Mr Kapil Sharma - It is very apparent that these people are bent on stopping your show .Irrespective of your behaviour - for which you apologised,they have not accepted the same - but have a single point clear agenda,to humiliate you and with the help of their colleagues - throw you out.It saddens me because these people are the same whose careers you have resurrected. And they stab you in the back.Least said the better of Krushna and his vulgar acts along with Bharti and celebrities who have walked out of his show.They are bent on avenging/damaging your popularity and it is highly regretted Sony TV and their management is supporting them You have spread laughter amongst millions of people.I recall sick people who walked to your shows,with tears in their eyes and blessing you.I will always respect you and miss the show ,you and your current colleagues .Please quit with your head high before you are asked to quit.You have enough talent to walk the path alone and achieve succes

          Let Sunil,Ali Asgar,Chandan ,Sugandha try their luck in new show or with Krushna.Latest show to promote "Tubelight " failed to impress people in every way.Neither story was new nor characters.Sunil looked rather vulgar or cheap the way he shook his body or looked at female artist.Again and again acting as "Dr.Gulati ,same (as was in Kapil show)operation scene,"Jaun banega carorpati" quiz style failed miserably.Foolish ineffective questions,no humour at all.Ali Asgar said he left Kapil because he wants new role but Ali again acted became woman and acted as nurse .He and Sunil overacted.Sugandha didnot funny but stupid and not at all pretty (as she always looked ).The public also looked as if all were chosen ones.Suhail,Salman laughed as forcefully as possible.The show was a total flop.A good result for Kapil sure.Kapil' s each show after few menbers of his team exit stories new,presentation superb as always.Kiku Sharda in male role doing great job.Sumona and others are too good.

              Yes very clear it is a well planned conspiracy against Kapil.Kapil Show on Sony was the greates money earning show for the channel so why would any channel promote Sunil only because two acts fought and it was their personal fight.It has nothing to do with channel .Besides this post their exit Kapil still managed to give us good funny shows .Each show with new story.Apt direction.No men turned into female role but making all laugh.Why channel giving so much importance if it is not done politically to damage Kapil.Kapil now decent,humble.Learnt from mistake.No reason to put his show on back burner.Kapil is quick-witted.Krushna already failed as comedian.No reason to call him for another new shiw.
