Shahid Kapoor and Mrunal Thakur in Kapil Sharma Show
A promotional trip to The Kapil Sharma Show has to be on the agenda for any film worth its salt and this weekend, it is the turn of Shahid Kapoor and Mrunal Thakur to join the popular comedian and his gang, including Krushna Abhishek and Bharti Singh, to discuss their film Jersey, which is set to release on April 22. The film was earlier meant to be an April 14, release in a three-way clash with Yash’s KGF: Chapter 2 and Vijay’s Beast, but was pushed ahead with only days to go.
The latest promo of The Kapil Sharma Show features Shahid Kapoor, Pankaj Kapoor and Mrunal Thakur as guests. And going by the promo, it appears that Kapil has ensured a rollicking time not only for his celeb guests, but the audience too. Take, for instance, Kapil wondering whether the fear of having to wash Shahid’s jersey is why she prevents him from taking to the game in the film. Mrunal, of course, is quick to respond that she is justified in her anger as she is not only the bread-winner of the family in the film, but also has to handle much of the household, forcing Shahid to chip in that he isn’t all that useless and does enough to help with running their home. Of course, all this was in jest and in keeping with the content of the film.
The nearly four-minute-long promo has quite a few moments of Kapil ribbing the stars, like when he says that Shahid is standing like a student during a parent-teacher meet when Pankaj Kapoor joined them on stage, among many others, leaving no doubt, that the comic has put together a hilarious episode with team Jersey. The amazing bit, though, is that Pankaj also keeps the laughs coming steadily with his quick wit.
The episode featuring team Jersey will be telecast on this Saturday, April 16, 2022, at 9:30 p.m and will, subsequently, be available to stream on SonyLiv.
Jersey is an upcoming Hindi-language sports drama film written and directed by Gowtam Tinnanuri, and is a remake of the filmmaker’s 2019 Telugu film of the same name. Shahid plays a professional cricketer who returns to the game to fulfill his son's dream of a Jersey.
