The Kapil Sharma Show is only on a temporary break. It will be back in a couple of months as soon as Kapil finds his bearings. The damage done to his image is being partially imputed to certain members of his team whom Kapil trusted blindly at the cost of his credibility.
Says Kapil Sharma honestly, “Mujhe samajh main nahin aata yeh sab kaise hua (I don’t understand why things went wrong). It all happened too quickly to me. My show became a source of happiness and laughter for the entire country. I felt blessed. Usske baad lagta hai kissiki nazar lag gayi. My health suffered. All kinds of nasty rumours were spread about me. I never bothered to clarify or correct the misreports about me. I guess some people took advantage of my silence.”
Kapil Sharma is now at an ayurvedic healing centre in Bengaluru, very much at peace with himself. “It is so lovely and quiet over here. I needed to get away. The noise and stress got the better of me. Though I’ve been here just a few days I already feel much better. I wish I had taken better care of my health,” says Kapil, as he promises to return with his show stronger than ever.
Would we see Sunil Grover and Ali Asgar back on the show? “Why not?” shoots back Kapil. “It is their show as much as mine. Ghar waapas aane ke liye kisiki ijaazat ki zaroorat nahin hoti (you don’t need anyone’s permission to come home).”
