On Sunday, reports started making rounds that The Kapil Sharma Show is set to go off air in February this year. However, the reason behind this decision was not disclosed earlier. Recently, as per The Times of India report, multiple reasons have come about for Kapil to pull the plug off his hit show. The show also stars Kiku Sharda, Krushna Abhishek, Bharti Singh, Archana Puran Singh, and more.
After Sunil Grover and Kapil Sharma fall out, the show’s TRP ratings also dipped. Although Kapil Sharma managed to run the show without his Dr. Gulati (Sunil Grover). Although Kapil Sharma managed well to run his show with new artists and comedians.
Talking about the reason, a source told, “Contrary to reports, there is no revamp plan. Kapil’s show has been a favorite with the masses because of many reasons. The audience participation was one driving factor for the show. Currently, there is no live audience due to the pandemic. Films too are not releasing and so, Bollywood actors are not coming to the show for any film promotion. So, the makers felt that it would be ideal to take a break right now and return when things get back to normal.”
The report also suggested that Kapil’s wife Ginni Chatrath’s second pregnancy is also one of the reasons too. The source further said, “Kapil Sharma’s wife Ginni is expecting their second child and the break would be ideal for him to stay at home and focus on giving quality time to the family. This break will give him that much-needed time to spend with family. The show too can return with more entertaining content after a three-month break.”
