As we already know that Bollywood actors like Shah Rukh Khan, Anil Kapoor, Ajay Devgn (the most recent) had to return from the set of ‘The Kapil Sharma Show as comedian Kapil Sharma has not been showing up for the shoot of the show. While some reports say that the comedian has not been keeping well, others suggest Kapil has been missing his shoot due to his drinking problem. Recently, Kapil had cancelled his shoot with Ajay Devgn and the Baadshaho team (Ileana D’Cruz, Emraan Hashmi and Esha Gupta) due to a night of binge drinking. Well, as a result of his unprofessional attitude, the channel has decided to give Kapil Sharma the much-deserved break to restore his health.
Yes, you heard it right. Reportedly, The Kapil Sharma Show is going off-air and Krushna Abhishek‘s The Drama Company will take the slot of TKSS, while Super Dancer will replace The Drama Company. In a statement to indianexpress.com, a credible source revealed, “Super Dancer will take The Drama Company’s time slot of 8 pm, while the latter will be pushed to Kapil’s air time of 9 pm. The channel is waiting for Kapil to recover and get back fit and fine. If and when it happens, the show might get the 10 pm slot.”
The source further added, “Kapil has been genuinely unwell and needs time to get back. The channel is not giving up on him but giving him time to recover and also get his charm and magic back. It would indeed be a good break where we can come back stronger and with a much better content. Anyway, there were always plans for revamping the show and this time can be utilized for the same. The Drama Company is for a finite period and if its season two doesn’t happen, Kapil might even get its 9 pm slot.”
Kapil created a bad picture of himself by cancelling shoots with big Bollywood celebs, following this, he also received a verbal warning from the channel. But it seems that now Sony TV has had enough of Kapil’s health excuses and has decided to give him the break he wants by pulling the plug. Sony EVP and Business Head Danish Khan had told the portal in a recent interview, “There’s Kapil as an artist, a person, and a show. As a channel, we are really proud of the artist and TKSS has been one of our most successful shows. When a person shoots continuously for one and a half years, they do go through ups and downs. We are no one to comment on his personal life but for us, he has delivered a good show and has been spreading smiles among our audience for a long time. And that keeps us really happy.”
