The Kapil Sharma Show: Kiku Sharda, Simmba stars discuss comedian's one-year sabbatical in first episode teaser

As the highly anticipated comedy talk show, The Kapil Sharma Show gears up for its premiere on 29 December, the makers dropped the teaser of the first episode, featuring Simmba stars Ranveer Singh and Sara Ali Khan with director Rohit Shetty.

The 30-second-long clip shows Kiku Sharda giving a hilarious explanation behind Kapil Sharma's absence from television for over a year. The show, apart from Sharda, will feature Sumona Chakrobarty, Krushna Abhishek, Chandan Prabhakar and Bharti Singh tickle the funny bone. Another teaser was released on 16 December, where Salman Khan with brothers Sohail and Arbaaz and father Salim, was seen laughing heartily at Kapil's banter with his guests.

The announcement that the fan favourite chat show would return to television was made in November, and the comedian commenced the shoot for the same right before his grand wedding with longtime girlfriend Ginni Chatrath in Jalandhar.

The first instalment of The Kapil Sharma Show was initially scheduled for 26 episodes, but was later extended for a year. However, the series was taken off air owing to Kapil's deteriorating health as well as Sunil Grover's exit from the show following his infamous mid-air altercation with Sharma.
