It’s over for Kapil Sharma. At least for now.Repeated health issues, tantrums and arrogance finally melted down what was the most phenomenal happening on Indian television in recent times.
After repeated snubs to Bollywood, The Kapil Sharma Show has folded up.
Confirming this Kapil’s colleague Kiku Sharda says, “Yes, The Kapil Sharma Show is on a break because of Kapil’s health issues.”
The “break” however seems permanent as Kiku has moved on , and moved back, to a sitcom on SAB TV.
Provinding details about his new show the comic virtuoso who added so much humourous luster to Kapil’s show reveals, “Right now for some weeks I plan to take it easy. But in mid-September I start shooting for my new show for SAB tv. I was supposed to do this new show alongside Kapil’s show. But now I will shoot only for the SAB tv show.”
The new show will feature Kiku with Johnny Lever. “It’s called Partners. Johnny Lever and I are in it. It’s directed by Paritosh Painter.”
So are Kiku’s wife and children happy to have the man of the house getting out of drag and spending time at home?
“I always spend a good amount of time with my family. So they aren’t complaining. But they soon will start cribbing when I start the daily,” chuckles Kiku.
Kiku Sharda was the only member of Kapil Sharma’s comedy show who stood by Kapil after his notorious midair fight with Sunil Grover after which Grover along with other members of the cast Chandan Prabhakar, Ali Asgar quit the show.
Sunil’s response to the closure of Kapil’s show is not know. But it is to be noted that after the break with The Kapil Sharma Show, Sunil’s career is not doing well either.
