Sharma also made the announcement on social media through a video skit that also featured Singh, Abhishek, Sharda and Thakur.
While not a standalone comedy special, the new series promises double the laughter and heightened entertainment in every episode. The show vows to bring back the quirks and, most importantly, the incredible warmth that the Kapil family was known for, Netflix said.
Monika Shergill, vice president, Content, Netflix India, said Kapil Sharma is a huge entertainer whose legacy and comedy has made him a household name across India for years.
“We’re proud to bring the King of Indian Comedy, alongside his beloved and well-known castmates, to Netflix. Kapil will continue to make India laugh and also entertain millions of his viewers globally now, from his new address-Netflix,” she added.
