The Kapil Sharma Show: Sony Entertainment Television has decided to take The Kapil Sharma Show (TKSS) off air and replace it with The Drama Company. As per Indian Express Online, Kapil Sharma has been keeping unwell, because of which his shoots are getting repeatedly cancelled. As the channel does not have any fresh episodes to put on air, it has decided to do some programming change. 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 to good health. If and when it happens, the show might get the 10 pm slot”.

The comedian had been in the news for cancelling his shoots and sending even big Bollywood stars home. Right from Shah Rukh Khan to to Ajay Devgn and Aishwarya Rai, a number of actors went back after he could not turn up for the shoots. These incidents have created quite a bad picture for Kapil Sharma, who has reportedly also got a verbal warning from the channel.

However, in an interview with Indian Express Online, channel Head Danish Khan rejected reports of problems between them and Kapil Sharma. “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,” he said.

Another source quoted by IE Online said, “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” .
