Comedy Nights with Kapil, one of the most popular comedy shows on DesiPlay TV became a household name and its popularity continued to increase by leaps and bounds with each passing day. Everyone, from the common man to celebrities, appeared to be awestruck by the show. Not only that, but the comic show also gave a platform for film promotions as well. Biggies from Bollywood continued to visit the sets of Kapil’s show to promote their films. Here are some amusing punch lines and characters that became the show’s signature style.

Babaji Ka Thullu: Comedy Nights with Kapil has not only propelled the show’s host, Kapil Sharma, to unprecedented heights of popularity but the show has also successfully won a million hearts. Kapil Sharma’s distinctive phrase, ‘Babaji Ka Thullu,’ gained international acclaim. ‘Babaji Ka Thullu’ was a popular word in anything from text messaging to social networking sites.

Gutthi:  There’s no denying that Sunil Grover was fantastic playing the role of Gutthi. The character was one of the highlights of the show and the character not only became everyone’s favorite her hilarious introduction style was also copied and enacted by many.

Dadi:  Dadi aka Ali Asgar never missed a chance to say, ‘Ittu sa tha tu’ (you were so tiny) addressing Bittu aka Kapil Sharma! Ali’s amazing ability to bring liveliness and fun to the character was unmatched. Dadi’s another signature style ‘Shagun ki Pappi’ as a gesture of love for many is still fresh in the minds of many.

Pinky Bua: Kapil stated that he feels the secret to the show’s success is the equal affection that all the characters receive from the crowd. This is also true when we consider the many characters on this show. Pinky Bua was one of them. All she had ever wanted was to marry and find an uncle for Kapil!
