“Six years ago, when we were coming from a flight, we knew ‘Netflix’ was coming to India. So, we thought we needed to do something. So, it was a publicity stunt for this launch. It has been a delight to be part of this show. This is one place where work doesn’t feel like work. I am feeling blessed again. I am back home. We laugh all day and when we go to the stage, we take that laughter there,” Grover told reporters here.

He was speaking at the trailer launch of ‘The Great Indian Kapil Show’. The event was also attended by Sharma and other cast members, Kiku Sharda, Krushna Abhishek, Archana

Puran Singh and Rajiv Thakur.

Sharma said that the upcoming show was another ‘feather in our cap’.

“We are fortunate that we are bringing this show worldwide, thanks to ‘Netflix’. I am feeling good. You, the audience, have always loved this show. We have been making everyone laugh for so many years now. I hope you continue to shower love on us,” he said.

At the launch, the cast also celebrated Sharma’s birthday in advance. He turns 43 on April 2.

‘The Great India Kapil Show’ is all set to premiere on March 30, with new episodes every Saturday at 8 pm, on ‘Netflix’.
