The RRR team comprising of SS Rajamouli, Ram Charan, Jr.NTR and Alia Bhatt joined comedian Kapil Sharma on his show The Kapil Sharma Show for its upcoming episode ahead of the film’s theatrical release. The channel unveiled the promo of the upcoming episode where Krushna Abhishek pulls Alia’s leg and asks her when will a sequel to her film Kapoor and Sons, titled Kapoor and Bahus will come out, taking a jibe at her impending wedding with beau Ranbir Kapoor.
In the promo, Kapil makes a joke on Jr.NTR’s name and asks him, “Aap jab airport jaate hain tab kya NTR bol ke kaam chal jata hai ya RTPCR bhi dikhana padta hai? (When you go to the airport, the letters NTR are enough or do you need to show RTPCR as well?)” In the later part of the video, Krushna asks Alia making a reference to her boyfriend Ranbir and said, “Mere ko woh picture bohot achhi lagi thi aapki, Kapoor And Sons, uska sequel kab aa raha hai? (I really liked your film, Kapoor And Sons, when will the sequel of the film come?)” Kapil then asks him, “Kaunsa sequel? (What sequel?)” Krushna then replies, “Kapoor And Bahus.” Alia bursts into laughter after Krushna's reply.

In another promo, Kapil jokes with Rajamouli as well as Ram. He asks Ram who comes from an illustrious family of actors that includes his father Chiranjeevi and uncle Pawan Kalyan that don’t they get confused if a fan comes home asking to meet a superstar since there are several in the family. To this, Ram says that it happens pretty often but more so with directors than fans.
