Kapil Sharma Sends SRK, Ileana, Esha, Ajay, Anil BACK HOME. Why Is Sony Turning A BLIND EYE?

June 2017 – Kapil Sharma reaches Film City to shoot with Paresh Rawal, who had come to The Kapil Sharma Show to promote Guest Iin London. Before the shoot begins, the host complains of uneasiness and is rushed to the hospital.


July 2017: Kapil is rushed to the hospital after he faints on-the-sets right before shooting an episode with Jab Harry Met Sejal's  Imtiaz Ali and Shah Rukh Khan.

August 2017: Arjun Rampal and Aishwarya Rajesh are pepped up to promote their upcoming film, Daddy, on the platform, but Kapil turns up at the venue saying he is feeling uneasy and wouldn’t be able to shoot the proceedings.


August 2017: Kapil Sharma fails to turn up on time to shoot with Team Baadshaho – Ajay Devgn, Emraan Hashmi, Ileana D’Cruz and Esha Gupta. The stars wait for His Majesty to arrive but... sometime later Ajay Devgn walks out in sheer disgust.

This is the timeline of the stars Kapil Sharma has kept waiting citing one reason or the other over the past two months. While most were health related, but in the time of mobile phones, how difficult is communicating in time? Plus, doesn’t the comedian have a team managing him? Why not coordinate with them in time?


Furthermore, at this point of time, the BIG question is – Why is the broadcaster Sony allowing this to happen? Why are they not intervening?

It has been established that The Kapil Sharma Show no longer enjoys the fan following it used to. The TRPs are constantly dipping – the past few weeks have been particularly disappointing with the show failing to find a spot in the Top 20, forget Top 10.

The comedy show’s humour, which was the staple for several families as they sat together at the end of the day, has suffered a hit as well. From situational jokes, they have now moved on to slapstick – outright boredom.

The creative back-end of the once-popular show too has left its side with many choosing to work in Krushna Abhishek-starrer The Drama Company.

Most importantly, the show lost its sheen with the exit of Sunil Grover, Ali Asgar, Sugandha Mishra and Upasana Singh. The brand value of The Kapil Sharma Show has taken such a hit that despite introducing Bharti Singh and re-introducing Chandan Prabhakar, it still hasn’t been able to lure audiences.

Yesterday, a shooting schedule with the Poster Boys cast members Sunny Deol, Bobby Deol and Shreyas Talpade was cancelled by the film's producers for fear of suffering a similar fate as Kapil's previous guests.

It is clear that Bollywood has now sent out a signal to Sony that they are not sure whether they should visit The Kapil Sharma Show.

Why is Sony not taking any steps to avoid such recurring mishaps? Why is Kapil Sharma not being pulled up?

Isn’t a lot at stake? Over to you, Sony.
