Yesterday, rumour of Vir Das replacing the actor-comedian Kapil Sharma‘s show ‘Family Time with Kapil Sharma‘ on the channel started doing the rounds. Ever since Kapil’s comeback show has been pulled off-air (for a month) since the actor has not been shooting for the show and the channel doesn’t have any episodes in the bank, they have been playing the old episodes of ‘The Kapil Sharma Show‘. There have been also rumours that comedian Krushna Abhishek has been approached to do a show for the channel, so as to fill in ‘Family Time With Kapil Sharma’ time-slot.
Amidst all these speculations, fans can be assured as Vir Das has denied that he is doing a show replacing Kapil’s. Yes, you read that right. Vir Das took to his micro-blogging site to rubbish the rumours and also praised Kapil Sharma, saying that he is irreplaceable. Vir Das wrote, “No, I am not doing any show on any network. Kapil has accumulated a great deal of appreciation for himself over the years and his space isn’t something that can be replaced. I develop all my projects from scratch, based on my comedic ideas.” ALSO READ: Kapil Sharma Abuses, Threatens And Files Complaint Against Journalist For Alleged Extortion Attempt

Kapil Sharma, recently, has been making headlines for all the wrong reasons. After posting abuses in multiple tweets, he made headlines for abusing and threatening a journalist. Following this, the actor filed a police complaint against the journalist, (his rumored ex-girlfriend and producer) Preeti Simoes and (her sister) Neeti Simoes for trying to extort Rs 25 lakhs from him. In a statement to Bollywood Hungama, Kapil had said, “The people who want my career destroyed can spread whatever lies they want. I am okay with it. I am not new to people piggy riding on my success. Let them. As long as it gives them the satisfaction that they want. I know what I am doing. And my channel believes in me.” Watch this space for further updates.
