After almost four months of lockdown, the Hindi television shows are returning to shoots and releasing their fresh episodes. One show among them is the hit comedy series The Kapil Sharma Show, which will soon be airing its new episodes on TV. While talking to a leading website, Kapil shared his experience of shooting with masks and without the presence of any live audience.
"I have also received so many messages from fans telling us how much they missed the show. I am happy that we have resumed the shoot. The arrangements on the set are really good; there is a sanitising tunnel in place. The credit goes to the producers. Only my [spot] boy would be allowed to be with me in my vanity, along with one writer and director. We rehearsed on stage only as it is an open space so the chances of maintaining social distancing were better there. Later, we performed in front of Archana Puran Singh Ji. There was no audience, only 4-5 people from the crew were present. That was new. We obviously missed having the live audience but it was still fun", he said.
The 39-year old comedian also revealed that it was his wife Ginni who pushed him to resume the shoots. Having said that, he also admitted that he missed his crew and seeing people on the sets. "We only missed having a live audience. Many people on Twitter told me they wanted to attend the show as they don’t know it isn’t allowed but hopefully, they will know. I also felt bad and wished things normalised because the experience is very different while we had the audience in the picture. We are hopeful it will be fine. But till then, we are making sure to bring the best of entertainment to the people who love us."
