Days after the news broke out that actor Ajay Devgn had left the sets of "The Kapil Sharma Show" due to the absence of the host Kapil himself, Sony Entertainment Channel has now announced that the channel is taking a "short break" with the comedian.
The news comes in the thick of rumours that "The Drama Company" will soon be replacing the fan favourite "The Kapil Sharma Show".
The channel's official spokesperson issued a statement and mentioned that since Kapil Sharma has been under the weather for some time, it was mutually decided that the show is given a small gap. Once Kapil has recovered completely, the channel speaks of resuming the shoot for the show. He even laid emphasis on the relationship that channel has developed with the actor/comedian and wished him a speedy recovery.
Regular gossips have been doing rounds about the show to be taken off air completely, but the sources close to Sony Entertainment have strictly denied them as pure rubbish. The source added that a short break is not be mistaken as a permanent move and since no fresh episodes would be shot for now, reruns of earlier episodes will be constantly shown on the 8 pm slot.
"The official statement from the channel comes after Devgn visited the sets of the show to promote his forthcoming film "Baadshaho" earlier this week. He had reportedly walked out from the sets in anger after Kapil failed to arrive for the shoot, though Devgn later clarified that he didn't leave in a huff."
If reports are to be believed, Kapil loves to party till late and as a result, is often unable to make it to early morning shoots. However, Ajay Devgn stood clear and instead of making accusations, said that "he didn't know the reason behind the comedian's absence from the shoot on that day".
