The clip showed Kapil Sharma and Sonu Sood seated in the familiar drawing room sets of the comedy show. Kapil jokes and reads an episode of how two people, not migrants, were sent to Azamgarh by Sonu. The only other person in the clip is judge, Archana Puran Singh.
According to a report in Mumbai Mirror, the show is resuming shoot after 120 days and that the episode would be more of a tribute to Sonu with a dash of humour.
“The episode with Sonu paaji was different from other shoots as it’s more like our tribute to him and with a dose of laughter. There is also an emotional live video chat with some of the migrants he helped, Kapil was quoted as saying.
Kapil also mentioned that video chats with be a regular feature on the show now onwards and they can’t have live audiences on the show. They would be interacting with people from Gurgaon to Kolkata to the US. “Films are not releasing theatrically right now, so actors won’t come often. But we have done an episode with Archanaji’s (judge Puran Singh) husband, Parmeet Sethi, Kiku’s (Sharda) wife Priyanka and Krushnas (Abhishek) wife, Kashmira. “It was a homely feeling.”
