The Kapil Sharma Show, which went off air last year, is all set to return on TV for its second season, Sony announced on Tuesday on Twitter through an official promo. The first season, which premiered on 23 April, 2016, came to a halt owing to Kapil Sharma's deteriorating health as well as Sunil Grover's exit from the show after the infamous mid-air altercation, which resulted in a dip in its ratings.

The teaser shows how comedy brings people closer from different societal strata and acts as the 'best medicine' for an ailing person.

The first instalment of The Kapil Sharma Show was initially scheduled for 26 episodes, but was later extended for a year.

Sharma shot to fame after winning the comedy show The Great Indian Laughter Challenge in 2007, after which he hosted several reality shows, including the sixth season of Jhalak Dikhlaa Jaa alongside Maniesh Paul. He launched his own comedy show, Comedy Nights with Kapil, in 2013. The format of The Kapil Sharma Show is similar to that of Comedy Nights with Kapil, where a family and its neighbours form the crux of all the episodes of the show.

On a personal front, Sharma will marry his longtime partner Ginni Chatrath on 12 December in Jalandhar.
