A promo of the upcoming episode was posted on Sony's official Instagram page showing Kapil and team having fun with Anil. Kapil plays a round of his famous game where the comedian asks the guest if a rumour is true or not. The promo showed Kapil asking Anil, "Sir, ek afwa yeh hai ki aapne Abhishek Bachchan ke saath dosti sirf isliye kar rakhi hai taaki woh aapko andar ki khabar de ki Bachchan saab yeh film nahi kar paa rahe hai aur aap uss producer ko phone karke bol de ki yeh mujhe de do (there is a rumour that you are friends with Abhishek only so that he can give you inside information about the films that Amitabh is unable to do and you can then call the producer and ask him to give it to you).”

Making a joke at his own expense, Anil says, “Nahi, nahi, not even Bachchan saab. Maine toh Abhishek ko yeh bhi kaha ki jo tu bhi na karega, woh bata de mujhe (Not just Mr Bachchan, I asked Abhishek to inform me about the films rejected by him).” He also cracked a joke on Archana and called her a man indirectly.
