There were rumours that the host Kapil Sharma had slashed his fee during the last season. However, in an interview with BollywoodLife, he cleared, "These pay cut rumours are false. We are getting our stipulated amount. We are extremely happy working together. Anyways, money is secondary. No one can beat the fact that The Kapil Sharma Show is the biggest comedy show in the country."

Archana Puran Singh
Archana Puran Singh, who replaced Navjot Singh Sidhu on The Kapil Sharma Show overnight was being paid Rs 10 Lac per episode according to reports. In one of the episodes, Archana Puran Singh talked about the gender pay gap. When asked what she would like to become if given the power of a shape-shifting snake, she said she wants to become Navjot Singh Sidhu as he takes home double salary than her.
There were reports that Archana Puran Singh will be paid Rs 2 Crore for the entire season. That's way less than Navjot Singh Sidhu, who took home Rs 25 Crore per season.
For those who don't know, Navjot Singh Sidhu had to exit from the show after his comments on the Pulwama attack. In an interview he said, “For a handful of people, can you blame the entire nation and can you blame an individual? It (the attack) is a cowardly act and I condemn it firmly. Violence is always condemnable and those who did it must be punished.”
His statement didn't go well with many and #BoycottSidhu started trending on Twitter. Netizens demanded him to be sacked from the Kapil Sharma show and the rest is history. Reportedly, producer Salman Khan has been trying to bring back Sidhu but there is no confirmation on the same.
The second season of the Kapil Sharma Show came to an end earlier this year. One of the reasons behind this break is that the host Kapil Sharma has taken paternity leave to be with his family and spend some time with his newborn baby. The makers are planning to re-launch the show later with a revamped avatar. Also let us tell you that, there are reports that Kapil Sharma and Sunil Grover might come back together with the new season of the Kapil Sharma Show which is likely to launch a few months later.
For those who don't know, the last one was the second season of the show. The first season of the show ran on another channel and was a huge success. However, the season went off the air in the year 2017. According to reports, Kapil Sharma and the channel took this decision mutually to take the show off the air.
There were a lot of reasons behind the show going off fair, one of them being Kapil Sharma's tiff with Sunil Grover. There were also rumours that Kapil had a drinking problem back then and he used to cancel a lot of shoots. While a lot of people were thinking it is the end of his TV career, he returned with a new show after a year. This time, on a new channel and with new producers. This season, Salman Khan is one of the producers of the show.
However, this season a lot of old members of the show didn't continue to be a part of the show. There were earlier rumours that Sunil Grover will come back to the show. However, he didn't. Even for season 3, there are rumours that he will collaborate with Kapil Sharma again but he hasn't confirmed it yet.
Sugandha Mishra, who was a key member of the show too didn't continue to be a part of the new season. In one of the interviews, she talked about the same, she said, "Every show has a journey. After Sunil Grover ji left, there were many changes happened in the format of the show. And we were not called again. I was going with the flow and I feel my journey with the show halted there."
