Kapil Sharma, who is expected to make a comeback with a new show in October, is reportedly trying to get back in shape for his new project.

Recently, a photo of Kapil Sharma from Raksha Bandhan celebration hit the Internet. Dressed in casuals, Kapil was spotted wearing a baseball cap in the photos and he appeared to have gained weight.
The extremely successful Kapil Sharma Show went off air last year after the infamous fight between Kapil Sharma and his former co-star Sunil Grover. It was reported that Kapil resorted to drinking and was battling depression. Earlier this year, Kapil Sharma made his comeback with Family Time With Kapil but the show was concluded after he reportedly failed to turn up for shoots.
In an earlier interview to news agency IANS, Kapil Sharma said that he needed time to “recuperate”. “I think I need some me time and need to recuperate. I’ve been working too hard for too long. There is a lot in the pipeline and lot of new exciting projects which I will talk about soon. The reality right now is that I have worked very hard and I love what I do. I just need some time off and I promise you that I will be entertaining you again, as that is what I thrive on,” he said.
