Well, we can’t say that we didn’t see it coming. Rumours about The Drama Company replacing The Kapil Sharma Show on television were doing rounds earlier but now we finally have a confirmation on this. As per the official spokesperson from the channel, “Kapil has been under the weather for sometime now. Due to which, we have mutually agreed to take a short break. However once Kapil has recovered completely, we will start shooting once again. We value our relationship with Kapil and wish him a speedy recovery.”
In fact, Kapil’s show will come back on television as Kapil Returns. Super Dancer 2 will fill in the spot while Krushna Abhishek’s show will be allotted Kapil’s time slot. A source had earlier told Indian Express, “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 fit and fine. If and when it happens, the show might get the 10 pm slot.” Kapil’s health had been making news for a lot of right and wrong reasons. The comedian had to cancel shoots with celebrities because of his health and there were reports of Ajay Devgn getting miffed at the comedian for the same reason after he cancelled the shoot with the Baadshaho team at the last moment.

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. Things fell apart for him after his infamous mid-air fight with Sunil Grover which led a lot of comedians from the crew to walk out from Kapil’s team. Upasana Singh was the latest one to quit Kapil’s team again. Yes, she has been juggling between her preferences and walked out to be a part of Krushna’s team again. We hope that the break will give Kapil time to think about how he can make a smashing comeback.
