Kapil Sharma’s ardent fans have been ever so longing for his return to their televisions since it was taken off air by the Sony channel authorities because of its low TRPs and Kapil’s recurring health concerns which reportedly resulted in friction with celebs making an appearance at the show. Earlier this month, Kapil Sharma admitted to started drinking more heavily than before, after the infamous fallout with Sunil Grover and co on the flight back to India.
Now, things are still not looking up for the comedian, as per reports in Mid-Day. The comedian-actor was spotted at the Business Lounge at the Mumbai airport and he was looking quite off-colour. He was asked by a fan when the fans can expect him to return with the show, and Kapil responded stating that he is currently undergoing rehabilitation and would be back soon. Kapil was recently admitted to a hospital in Bengaluru, and was supposed to be on treatment. But he has begged to return to Mumbai to carry on with the promotion of his upcoming film Firangi.
In a statement to a leading daily, Kapil’s close friend said, “There have been reports that Kapil is returning with his show ‘early next month’ but despite recovering well, he needs time. Kapil is feeling much better. I can sense the changes in him. He had been pushing himself too far during the last few years.” Speaking of The Kapil Sharma Show, the friend further added, “The show will return only when Kapil has fully recovered. Kapil has realised health is the most important thing in life. As for the show, it is very dear to him and it isn’t going anywhere” Reportedly, the comedian will return only by next year.
