Media reports have it that through each episode of the TKSS, Kapil gets richer by around Rs 60-80 lakhs. This is not surprising since the entire show rides on his name. It was obvious that the captain of the ship would take home the larger piece of the cake.

Navjot Singh Sidhu, earns Rs 8-10 lakhs, Sumona Chakravarti around Rs 6-7 lakhs. Reportedly, Kiku Sharda and Ali Asgar make Rs 5-7 lakhs per episode, Chandan Prabhakar gets around Rs 4 lakhs.

Kapil and his on-screen family moved to Sony after having ugly fallout with Colors. Despite seeing hiccups in the beginning, the show has picked up a nice pace. Their TRP rating maintains a good average. ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’ is also one of the favourite spots where celebs promote their movies, thus adding to its already high popularity.
