WEB DESK: Actor-comedian Kapil Sharma’s popular comedy show ” Comedy Nights With Kapil ” will reportedly go off air on January 17, saddening many regular viewers including celebrities.
Expressing disappointment over the end of the popular comedy show superstar Shah Rukh Khan and other actors have said they want to see more of him. Many actors used to come to the show multiple times for promotion of their films.
“He’s a very talented man, one of the best stand-up comics we have. Apart from that, the film that he has done ‘Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon’, he’s done very good work in it. Hope he does something else soon so that we all can be entertained,” said Shah Rukh.
Actor-director Farhan Akhtar said: “I do believe that it is coming to an end. I think Kapil is a very talented guy. He has plans for himself in his life. I wish him all the best. He’s a very sweet boy and I just hope that whatever he plans for himself, he can achieve that.”
Actresses Alia Bhatt and Shraddha Kapoor, however, were unaware that the show was going off air.
The Aashiqui 2 actress said: “Rubbish! Really? I think the promotions might become a bit dull without ‘Comedy Nights With Kapil’, without Kapil being in our lives.”
She added: “During promotions, we always look forward to going on his show, and having a good laugh. But he’ll do movies now, his film is doing well.”
Shraddha said that she had been quite disconnected to the show and she is really sad if it’s going off. “I’ve been quite disconnected. Is it going off? That’s really very sad if it’ll go off.”
Kapil has decided to take his trademark show off air as the channel on which his show aired is giving another show of a similar name more prominence and hence decided to take it off air.
However, there are reports that Kapil is planning to come back with the same show on another channel.
Even actor Sidharth Malhotra feels the same as he said: “I’ve heard that he’ll come back again. So it’s a short break. It’s an amazing show; he entertains people. Comedy is very difficult and I think he’s the best comedian we have. Looking forward to his comeback.”
Some of the actors of the show such as Sunil Grover, Kiku Sharda, Ali Asgar and Sumona Chakravarti have become household names because of the show.
