The TRPs of The Kapil Sharma Show started declining after his mid-air altercation with co-star Sunil Grover, which resulted in the latter's exit from the show. Following the spat, his co-stars Chandan Prabhakar and Ali Asgar had also quit the show. In June, Chandan Prabhakar returned to the show.
Meanwhile, Ali Asgar is now a part of Kapil Sharma's rival Krushna Abhishek's show The Drama Company.
