As per buzz, Star Plus is the frontrunner to have the show
It’s clear that fans will miss Comedy Nights with Kapil sorely on Colors. However, the buzz is that Kapil Sharma’s hit comedy show will make a comeback in a new format on Star Plus. Earlier, there was buzz that it would come on Sony but now it’s Star Network that’s clearly the first preference.
It should be noted that Colors has emerged as the No.1 channel in the country in the past few weeks as per the BARC Ratings. Star Plus has come second or third. Zee Anmol and Zee TV are two other channels that make up the top five.
As per inside sources, the channel has agreed to pay Kapil Sharma, the amount quoted by him. The fee is significantly higher than that of what he got in Colors. However, talks are still on and nothing has been signed on the dotted line. A spokesperson from the channel said, "There is no clarity on whether CNWK is coming on our channel so far. No one from the marketing knows about it. Also, it is a very sensitive issue and announcements will be made only after everything is settled."
One of the main issues is the format of the show. It cannot be an exact replica of what we see on Colors. Actor Ali Asghar has moved to a new show, Who Teri Bhabhi Hain Pagle on SAB TV and has confirmed that he won’t return as Daadi. Moreover, the copyright is still with Colors. As of now, most of the other actors are unaware of where the show is headed to and what role they will play in it.
The source also says that it has become a huge ego clash between the star comedian and Colors. While rumours were rife that money was an issue, what further dented matters was Kapil’s alleged misbehaviour on the recent cruise.
