Popular comedian Sunil Grover is in news as he is all set to make a comeback with a new show. The news has created a lot of curiosity among fans and everyone is eager to know more about it. Now, has exclusively learnt that Sunil Grover's comeback show will have Kiku Sharda, Ali Asgar, Sugandha Mishra and a few other actors from The Drama Company.

Sources close to the show informed us that Kiku and Sunil have already started rehearsing for the series. With this, news of Kapil returning with 'The Kapil Sharma Show' might not be true.

Sunil's return with the show which will feature actors from 'The Kapil Sharma Show' and 'The Drama Company' raises a big question - Have Kapil's friends disowned him? Well, the answer is Kapil has been given a break until his health gets better and he is in good company.

Recently, there were reports in the media about the reason behind Kapil Sharma's downfall. It was reported that Rajiv Dhingra was responsible for all the crisis that the 'Kis Kis Ko Pyaar Karoon' actor is going through. Rajiv served as a creative director of 'The Kapil Sharma Show' after the old team left the show post the mid-air fight.

A source close to Sunil's new show told us, "Kapil's friends (actors) who have worked with him and stood by him during thick and thin still love him. But they don't want to be associated with Kapil till the time creative control of the show is in the hands of Rajiv Dhingra. Because of the debacle of Mad In India which also had Sunil. They don't want to do any show where Rajiv is creatively involved or has an upper hand. So the entire team of actors have decided to work on another show.

Another source added, "Even after winning 'The Great Indian Laughter Challenge' Kapil did two not so great shows, 'Has Baliye' and 'Ustaadon Ka Ustad'. However, it was 'Comedy Circus' which changed his fortune, gave him a platform and made him popular. Then came 'Comedy Nights with Kapil' and the actor become an overnight sensation. Since then Kapil has never looked back. He has ruled the small screen since last 10 years. But with the current situation looks like Kapil's downfall has started and apparently Rajeev is to be blamed for it."

Now, coming back to the new show it is slated to go on air by next month. The tentative date is October 1st. On the other hand, 'The Drama Company' will go off-air and Super Dancer will take its slot. TDC was always supposed to be a limited episode show.
