Kapil`s dilemma - his comedy show must go on
Mumbai: Kapil Sharma is a man caught in a conflict. On the one hand, he is gearing up for his big screen debut in Yash Raj Films` `Bank Chor` and on the other, his plans to reduce his workload by half on television have reportedly fallen through.
According to a source, an entertainment channel, which is behind Kapil`s hugely successful "Comedy Nights With Kapil" has refused to turn the show into a once-a-week affair.
The source said: "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?
"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 (emotional drama)."
The idea of shooting surplus episodes has also fallen through.
"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 them, `Aap pehle aa jao kyonki meri film shooting hai (Come earlier because I am busy shooting my film).`
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. Maybe get a clone created and call the show `Hum Aapke Hain...Clone`," he quipped.
