SRK, others saddened over end of Kapil Sharma's show

IANS  |  Mumbai 

Expressing disappointment over the end of actor-comedian Kapil Sharma's comedy show "Comedy Nights With Kapil", superstar Shah Rukh Khan and other actors have said they want to see more of him.

Celebrities present at the calendar launch of photographer Dabboo Ratnani spoke about Kapil and his popular comedy show, which will reportedly go off air on January 17.

"He's a very talented man, one of the best stand-up comics we have. Apart from that, the film that he has done 'Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon', he's done very good work in it. Hope he does something else soon so that we all can be entertained," said Shah Rukh.

Actor-director Farhan Akhtar said: "I do believe that it is coming to an end. I think Kapil is a very talented guy. He has plans for himself in his life. I wish him all the best. He's a very sweet boy and I just hope that whatever he plans for himself, he can achieve that."

Many actors have come on the show multiple times for promotion of their films.

Actresses Alia Bhatt and Shraddha Kapoor, however, were unaware that the show was going off air.

Alia said: "Rubbish! Really? I think the promotions might become a bit dull without 'Comedy Nights With Kapil', without Kapil being in our lives.

"During promotions, we always look forward to going on his show, and having a good laugh. But he'll do movies now, his film is doing well."

Shraddha said: "I've been quite disconnected. Is it going off? That's really very sad if it'll go off."

Reportedly, Kapil was miffed with the channel for giving another show of a similar name more prominence and hence decided to take it off air. But there are reports that Kapil is planning to come back with the show on another channel.

That's what even Sidharth Malhotra feels.

"I've heard that he'll come back again. So it's a short break. It's an amazing show; he entertains people. Comedy is very difficult and I think he's the best comedian we have. Looking forward to his comeback."

Some of the actors of the show such as Sunil Grover, Kiku Sharda, Ali Asgar and Sumona Chakravarti have become household names because of the show.
