The channel's official spokesperson says, "Kapil has been under the weather due to which we have mutually agreed to take a short break". However, once he recovers completely, we will start shooting again. "We value our relationship with Kapil and wish him a speedy recovery".
We do feel that Kapil needs to take some time off since the comedian has been controversy's favourite child for a very long time. The channel is waiting for Kapil to recover and get back to good health.
Another source quoted by IE Online said, "Kapil has been genuinely unwell and needs time to get back".
The show has been suffering for a while.
He had reportedly walked out from the sets in anger after Kapil failed to arrive for the shoot, though Devgn later clarified that he didn't leave in a huff. The latter though never showed up.
Upasana Singh had also joined Krushna Abhishek's show Comedy Nights Live and quit even that saying, "Mujhe bilkul maza nahi aa raha tha". For the uninitiated, Shah Rukh and Anushka and the Mubarakaan team also had to cancel the promotion of their film on TKSS due to Kapil Sharma falling ill. "It never happened back then".
Confirming the news, he said, "Yes, I am just going to rest for some days". I believe Kapil akela padd gaya hai jab se bahut log usse alag ho gaye hain. The show has been hitting headlines for a while now with some developments including the characters joining competitors (Sugandha Mishra, Ali Asgar, Dr Sanket Bhosale), besides the famous mid-air spat between Sunil Grover and Kapil. "I think he is under enormous stress and tension and is overworked". Kapil in the statement had mentioned, "I am deeply touched by the warmth and love the audience has showered on us over the years".
