Audience Unhappy With Family Time With Kapil Sharma

Stand-up comedy has always been Kapil’s forte; however the show doesn’t have much of that, leaving the comedian’s fans disappointed.
People are unhappy that Sunil Grover and Ali Asgar are not in the new show. Meanwhile, Navjot Singh Sidhu’s shayaris are getting repetitive, besides Kiku Sharda and Chandan Prabhakar’s characters don’t have much of a change. The new addition to the show is Neha Pendse.

The show is a fun game show where members of a family compete with each other in games and fun activities. Twitter users compared it to Khullja Sim Sim, the popular 2001 show.
In spite of the debut episode of the show being a damper with the audience, an instance to be noted here is even The Kapil Sharma Show did not open to great reviews. This was just the first episode and there is lots of scope for improvement.
