The Kapil Sharma Show: I Am Not Done Yet - Plot, Cast, Release & More

The undisputed king of Indian comedy, Kapil Sharma is finally back with his famous, The Kapil Sharma Show! And even better, the man has made his way to Netflix. With a release date of 28th January 2022, the comic is all set to assert its dominance on the popular streaming platform.

Kapil Sharma came from nowhere and is now a household name. But how? We will get to that in a bit. But first, let’s talk a little about how the man paved his way into the hearts of the nation via his quirky yet effective comedy.

A lot of people believed that the reason for the show’s staggering popularity was the character played by Sunil Grover, Gutthi. Nevertheless, this was proven wrong when Sunil left and started his own show, but it didn’t seem anywhere close to the real deal.
