Colors rejects Kapil Sharma's plea to make Comedy Nights once a week

Kapil Sharma

Kapil Sharma is a conflicted man. On one hand he is gearing up for his large-screen debut in Yash Raj Films’ Bank Chor. On the other hand his plans of reducing his work-load by half on television have fallen through.

It is learnt from reliable sources that Colors, the channel behind Kapil’s hugely successful Comedy Nights With Kapil, has refused to turn the show into a once-a-week affair.

Says the source, “It was Kapil’s plan to do the show once a week instead of twice during the shooting schedule of Bank Chor. But considering Kapil’s and the show’s popularity the channel has decided not to reduce the show’s weekly frequency.”

The channel’s decision has put Kapil in a quandary. How does he take time off to shoot for the film?

Shedding light on his conflict Kapil says, “Problem toh hai. Initially I had planned to do the show once a week during the shooting of my film. But the channel has rejected the idea. They are not ready to listen to my rona-dhona.”

The idea of shooting surplus episodes has also fallen through.

Says Kapil, “I can’t create a bank of episodes for two months when I shoot my film because all the stars who come on my show do so when they are promoting their films. I can’t tell then, ‘Aap pehle aa jao kyonki meri film shooting hai.’

Kapil says he is looking for a way out. “Luckily for me my film’s shooting is delayed by a few months because the rest of the casting is not complete. But sooner or later I’ll have to face this problem headlong. Pataa hain kya karenge. Maybe get a clone created and call the show Hum Aapke Hain Clone.”

The channel are so mean! This show and Kapil which have given them so much popularity and they are no willing to help him out and pay him back for his efforts. When it suits them and for some reason they cant show CNWK on sunday then they will have it only once a week but when he requests them and wants them to cooperate with him they do this. This channel is really pathetic! Dont worry Kapil I'm sure somehow a solution will be found for you.
