Riteish Deshmukh and Nargis Fakhri join The Kapil Sharma Show to promote their upcoming movie Banjo. The comedy was not much of that episode, the guests (The Vamps and Shekhar Ravjiani) were likeable and most of the puns hit the right sweet spot.
Today’s episode was kind of a mixed bag. The guests were good, of course, it would be if one of them happened to be the always jovial Riteish Deshmukh. Riteish and Nargis Fakhri had come to the show to promote their upcoming film, Banjo. The film is scheduled to release this week. Riteish has been on the show very often, which Kapil Sharma has very kindly reminded everyone by saying he appears more on the show than the ads. That jibe worked. But can’ t say that about the rest.
The episode started off with Kapil Sharma and co. with their usual skit, this time with a Mughal flavour. Some of the jokes were chuckle-worthy, most of them missing the mark. Then the guests came with Riteish already being a part of the orchestra. He still maintains his thick beard and long hair, which does suit him. But it’s time he looks back his younger self. Nargis Fakhri joined him later, with jokes being made on her accent and the fact that she still doesn’t Hindi. Nargis, whose sense of humour is also brilliant, also took on Kapil Sharma, saying if she had met him earlier, her Hindi would have got better, and his English worse. Later, one of the actors from the film as well as the talented dancer, Dharmesh Yelande (ABCD and ABCD 2) also entered the show as the guest.
The best part of the show was when of the audience members asked the actors along with Kapil Sharma to enact the last scene of DDLJ. Riteish played Amrish Puri’s role, Kapil Sharma was Shah Rukh Khan, Nargis Fakhri was, of course, Kajol and Dharmesh Yelande…well, poor Dharmesh was the slow-moving train! It was sunny to hear Nargis speaking Hindi in her foreign accent, but she played along fine.
