From its beginning, The Kapil Sharma Show had been ruling the TRP Charts but it seems that 2017 is not so good for Kapil Sharma and his show. After his fight with co-star Sunil Grover aka Dr. Mashhoor Gulati, time has taken a toll on Kapil’s growth and fame.
A DNA report claims that Sony had paid a whopping ₹107 crore to Kapil Sharma but because of the whole fiasco, the channel is going through a rough patch and facing monetary losses. According to DNA, a source from Sony TV said,
They are terribly disappointed with how much bad press the entire Kapil Sharma episode has brought to the channel and the show. The ratings have dipped way more than what they thought it would and they are mostly not signing Kapil anymore. In fact, they might pull plugs on The Kapil Sharma Show once and for all.
If reports are to be believed, SONY might just offer Sunil Grover his very own show and dismiss The Kapil Sharma Show.
A source was quoted in the report saying,
They are planning to invest in Sunil now for a different show altogether. Ever since the fight happened, even rival channel Colors (who have a long standing issue with Kapil) has approached Sunil for a show but he has not signed anything. Sony has rights to his characters – Rinku bhabhi and Dr. Mashur Gulati and also earn a chunk of money from his live shows where he performs in his avatars. And they are incredible characters in their own spaces already. So they might have a show with these characters.
