Kapil Sharma is spreading his “colors” on TV these days…way too much!!!
First of all he is seen as a co host on Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa season 6 and he is also co producing cum anchoring a wonderfully scripted show, Comedy Nights With Kapil, which has opened to great numbers. Both the above shows air on Colors.
Yes, he has struck gold with Comedy Nights, but one must not forget that Kapil gained fame via his rib-tickling antics in Sony Entertainment Television’s Comedy Circus (Optimystix).
The Comedy Circus’s next season is all set to hit screens and will be called Comedy Circus Ke Mahabali. Like every season, Kapil was approached by the makers to be a part of the project this season too.
Kapil did accept the offer but guess what; we have now learnt that he has backed out after his Colors’ show hit a jackpot.
“Kapil just walked out of the show without giving any prior notice to the channel or the producers. We were all set to shoot with him on 30 June and 1 July (2013) as part of the first episode sequences. But he backed out putting everyone in a tight spot,” said a source from the sets of Comedy.
The same source further added that the shoot had to be postponed and currently they are looking out for a replacement. However, the channel is still very keen on having Kapil in Comedy Circus.
“They are doing all that to keep him in,” the source added.
We called up and even texted Kapil to get his response on the development but he chose not to reply. Producer Vipul D Shah of Optimystix and Sneha Rajani, EVP and Business Head of Sony Entertainment Television, also remained unavailable.
If we get any revert from the concerned persons, we will update the space in a jiffy.
Before signing off, here’s some more info on Comedy Circus Ke Mahabali.
Model Claudia Ciesla (Bigg Boss Season 3) is also a part of the series.
Archana Puran Singh and Arbaaz Khan will be seen as the judges yet again while Shruti Seth will host the show.
As reported in the media, Rakhi Sawant, Vinay Pathak and Johnny Lever’s daughter too are a part of the rib-tickler.
