There was a time when star co­me­dian Kapil Sharma (left) could do no wrong, but these days, noth­ing seems to be go­ing right for him.

Af­ter news of the Baad­shaho film team storm­ing out of the sets of The Kapil Sharma Show (TKSS), ru­mours flew thick and fast about Kapil’s ab­sence. Some ru­mours were that he had a panic at­tack; oth­ers claimed that Kapil was at a friend’s birth­day party till 6am, and failed to re­port for the shoot. TKSS was not aired on the Au­gust 26-27 week­end. An in­sider says, “There are no episodes in the bank and there is no up­date about the next shoot sched­ule.” With shoots be­ing can­celled too of­ten, it’s an alarm­ing sit­u­a­tion for TKSS.

TV an­chor Rochelle Rao, who is part of the show, says, “I’m not sure about what hap­pened with the shoot with Ajay Devgn (the star of Baad­shaho) as I don’t shoot for ev­ery episode with Kapil. My char­ac­ter ap­pears oc­ca­sion­ally.” About Kapil’s health, Rao says, “He has been keep­ing un­well and that’s there for ev­ery­one to see. He has been do­ing a lot of things with his film and the TV show, and it’s hard to run a show on your own. I’m sure these shoots wouldn’t be can­celled if there wasn’t an au­then­tic rea­son. We need to be a bit pa­tient and sup­port­ive as a team and help him get bet­ter.”

Co­me­dian Raju Shri­vas­tava, who shoots for TKSS on and off, says, “I think [Kapil] is over-ex­ert­ing him­self. But I don’t think the chan­nel is putting any pres­sure on him with re­gards to the rat­ings.”

Ear­lier, Kapil had can­celled a shoot with Shah Rukh Khan af­ter the ac­tor reached the set. Kapil was un­avail­able for a com­ment.
