Kapil Sharma's personal life might be on an all-time high but his professional life certainly isn't. Ever since his spat with co-actor and comedian Sunil Grover on a flight, where he allegedly hit him, things have just been going downhill for the comedy king.

We had recently told you that Kapil Sharma, who has resumed another season of his famous show – The Kapil Sharma Show – has incurred huge losses in terms of the moolah he used to take home.

Kapil Sharma is co-producing the show this year along with Salman Khan and owing to his downfall, is not making the same amount of money he used to make earlier. As per a Bhaskar report, Kapil used to charge Rs 60-70 lakh per weekend episode. However, now, the comedy king gets somewhere around Rs 15-20 lakh per weekend episode which is a massive fall in comparison to his previous amount. Not just that, apparently Bharti Singh and Krushna Abhishek also get somewhere between Rs 10- 12 lakh per weekend episode.

When Bollywoodlife contacted Krushna Abhishek for a comment, the comedian denied the news as baseless and a mere rumour. He said that they have been getting the stipulated amount and are happily working towards making it a success this time too. He also added that money is secondary for all of them.

Having said all of this, Krushna also mentioned that there is no question of a pay cut since Salman Khan is a generous producer. The people from the channel have added that they are getting more and more sponsorship for the show. However, the final success or failure would be reflected only through the TRP report.

Kiku Sharda, Chandan Prabhakar and Sumona Chakravarti are some of the stars who are still a part of the show. Navjot Singh Siddhu continues to sit on his judge throne.
