So he wanted to bring all experiences he has together in this show. they asked him how long will be the show and he gave them the breakdown but after the standup, gags , interviews of the celebs, still five minutes were left but when the show was shot, it went up to 120 minutes. They wanted just 70 minutes of content,” Kapil said.
