Kapil Sharma’s rival Krushna Abhishek is all set to work with artistes who were previously associated with The Kapil Sharma Show.
Sugandha Mishra, Ali Asgar and Sanket Bhosale have already joined the show and Krushna Abhishek was trying to pull a casting coup by convincing none other than Sunil Grover to join his team.

But it will not be Sunil who will partner Krushna on the show, it will be his old buddy Sudesh Lehri.
Preeti Simoes had pitched the show, tentatively titled Comedy Company, to Sony. The show will revolve around a family that intends to pursue theatre. Like Kapil, Krushna will also invite celebrities and converse with them while the cast members perform skits.
The Krushna-Sudesh jodi is already famous in the stand-up circuit and the audience will get to see them again.

This is the second blow to Kapil Sharma. First, Salman Khan opted out of promoting his upcoming release, Tubelight, on The Kapil Sharma Show and shot for a 2-hour special episode with Sunil, Ali, Sugandha and Sanket instead. And Salman seemed mighty impressed with Sunil Grover after shooting with him.
Buzz is, if Super Night With Tubelight is a TRP hit, Sony will give Sunil Grover his own show.

The Kapil Sharma Show, which was one of the most popular shows on Indian television, lost its glory post the mid-air brawl between Sunil Grover and Kapil Sharma. Soon after, the former, along with Ali Asgar, Chandan Prabhakar and Sugandha Mishra exited the show.
As things stand today, while Sunil is busy with other projects, Kapil continues to tackle fluctuating TRPs.
And now he has a new contender to compete with!
