Comedian Kapil Sharma and his comedy show The Kapil Sharma Show are finally back on the small screen after a long break. The second season of the show is being co-produced by actor Salman Khan who just wrapped up Bigg Boss season 12 on another channel. However, there were reports that Kapil has slashed his fee by a huge margin as he returned to the small screen after facing a number of controversies.
However, his colleague and comedian Krushna Abhishek, who is the new entrant in Kapil’s team, has rubbished the report. A few reports had indicated that Kapil was earlier paid around Rs 60-70 lakh per episode but is now paid around Rs 20 lakh per episode.
Krushna has called Salman a very generous producer who is not planning any cost-cutting measures. He told Bollywoodlife.com in a report, “These pay cut rumours are false. We are getting our stipulated amount. We are extremely happy working together. Anyways, money is secondary. No one can beat the fact that The Kapil Sharma Show is the biggest comedy show in the country.”
