Kapil shares teaser video ahead of his digital debut
Rumors were rife that the comedian might announce the news of his second child.

A little about the teaser video
In the video, Kapil can be seen rehearsing his dialogues ahead of the announcement. However, he is seen struggling to pronounce the word "auspicious." Despite many attempts, he fails to pronounce the word, and the director suggests him to record the video in Hindi instead. "I will be coming on your TV, laptops, and phones, that is on Netflix. This was the auspicious news."
