The actor-comedian Kapil Sharma has been making headlines for all the wrong reasons. The actor’s health has been the talk of the town for a while now. Kapil’s former colleague Ali Asgar, who shares a great rapport with the comedian on and off screen, is upset how things have gotten worse for Kapil. Recently, in a statement to a leading news channel, Ali Asgar stated, “I heard Kapil is in depression, I felt very bad. We all are with Kapil and will always be there for him. Preeti also called me that Kapil is not well and has apparently not even left his room for days.”

He further added, “When I reached his office, Kapil was lying down. He was close to tears when he saw me and could not even speak. It is clear that he is missing all of us, especially Preeti. He is like a child, who wants something but is not able to articulate it.” Ali also revealed that Kapil had written his ex-girlfriend Preeti Simoes’ name on his hand. However, Kapil’s spokesperson has rubbished the claims in a statement released to clear the air. ALSO READ: After Blaming Hackers, Kapil Sharma Accepts He Posted Abusive Tweets – See Post

The spokesperson said in a statement, “As a part of Mr Kapil Sharma’s team, we would like to emphasise that recent stories doing the rounds that Mr Sharma has met Mr Ali Asgar and has written Ms Preeti Simoes name on his hand are completely false. We are equally shocked to hear about this ourselves and are surprised that Mr Asgar, whom Mr Sharma has always considered a friend, would make such hurtful statements. In fact, Mr Sharma and his fiancee, Ginni are currently travelling together. We request the media to reach out to us to ensure our views are represented and the truth is brought to light.” Watch this space for further updates.
