Chandan Prabhakar patches up with Kapil Sharma; set to return to the show

Chandan Prabhakar, who played chaiwala Chandu on the show, has started shooting for the show again. He confirmed the news in a FB live chat, saying, “he’s coming back to the show” and “he missed the show a lot.”

Revealing the reason behind the break, he says, “jab kapde par paani pad jaata hai, to sookhne mein time lagta hai (it takes time for a drenched cloth to dry).” The comedian said he needed time off from the show and now he was ready.

He further elaborated on why he re-joined the show after mid-air tiff with Kapil. “See every action has an equal and opposite reaction. We are like family; I have spent half of my life with Kapil. If I make it a big issue, saying Mujhe zindagi mein tere saath kaam nahi karna then it’s not right. It’s OK if I reacted then, but I can’t stretch it for life. In a family, two brothers fight but that does not mean that they leave each other forever,” he told Spotboye.

Kapil decides to take a pay cut over show’s poor TRP

Owing to lack of good ratings post the exit of Sunil Grover and Ali Asgar from his show, Kapil Sharma has taken a cut in his remuneration. A source says that Kapil and the channel mutually decided to renegotiate his fees and it has been cut by almost half now. This is a practice followed in the West where actors come forward and offer to cut their fees when their shows get poor ratings because they want to continue.
