It seems like Kapil Sharma is not having a good time these days. At first it was his abusive fight with Sunil Grover which made everything fall apart for him. Then came Sony Entertainment Television’s warning to ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’ and recent one is when Stand-up comedian Abijit Ganguly accused the team of copying content.
Now the ultimate bad news is here. The Kapil Sharma Show will go off air very soon.
According to news in DNA, “Sony, the channel that airs the show, is in no mood to renew their contract with the comedian-actor which means it is the end of the road for The Kapil Sharma Show.”
As per the source of leading daily, “The makers are definitely not ready to pay Rs 107 crore for a show which is getting them nothing. Kapil might negotiate but the channel heads are shocked. Either Kapil has to get back Sunil and Ali, else his show stands scrapped. The latter is most likely to happen because Grover and Asgar are not ready to budge from their stand.”
As for now, Sunil Grover is not coming back to Kapil Sharma’s show but he will start his new show on Sony TV only. DNA quoted a source saying, “They are planning to invest in Sunil now for a different show altogether. Ever since the fight happened, even rival channel Colors (who have a long standing issue with Kapil) has approached Sunil for a show but he has not signed anything. Sony has rights to his characters — Rinku bhabi and Dr Mashoor Gulati— and they also earn a chunk of money from his live shows where he performs in his avatars…So they might have a show with these characters.”
The absence of Sunil Grover, Ali Asgar and Chandan Prabhakar has definitely affected Kapil Sharma and his show.
