The upcoming episode of The Great Indian Kapil Show pledges to be an absolute blast with the cast of Chamkila. From hilarious anecdotes to behind-the-scenes stories, there's no telling what surprises are in store in the upcoming episodes of The Great Indian Kapil Show. 

Talking about the idea of casting Diljit Dosanjh as Chamkila, Imtiaz Ali shares, "Shah Rukh Khan once told me that Diljit Dosanjh is the best actor in the country. I feel that if Diljit paaji had refused to do this film, then we could have never made it. So, we were very lucky. We couldn’t have asked for a better cast than this, both are extremely good. Parineeti is an actor, singer, and someone who was immediately ready to put on 15 kilograms for her character. It was nice and comforting."
