Besides being regularly declared the winner on stand-up comedy shows, ace stand-up comedian Kapil Sharma has also been known as the one whose partners have changed with stunning frequency. And in keeping with his record so far, the irrepressible funster will once again see another change of partner. Kapil, who was apparently unhappy with actress Ankita Lokhande who was performing with him on the show so far, will now have Shweta Tiwari accompanying him in his laugh-riot. The gorgeous actress, the winner of the last season of BIG BOSS, Shweta will take over as Kapil’s partner from the next episode. “Ever since the beginning of this series, my partners have been changed quite frequently,” he added cryptically, “I was surprised that Ankita stayed with me this long!”
For quite some time, there had been a strong buzz about Kapil’s faltering equation with Ankita. As a result, their performance and the final scores were being adversely affected. This was indirectly confirmed in an episode by the show’s judge Archana Puran Singh’s remark comparing Ankita to a diesel engine while Kapil she said, was like that run on petrol. “You will have a lot of catching up to do,” she had said to Ankita then. Meanwhile, Kapil seems happy about working with Shweta Tiwari. “Shweta is brilliant actress and has also shown great comic timing on this show earlier. I am looking forward to working with her,” he said.
