Kapil Sharma defends Rajiv Dhingra, says shoot cancellations had nothing to do with him

Mumbai: Kapil Sharma has come out in support of childhood friend Rajiv Dhingra, who has reportedly been responsible for cancellation of the shoots of ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’.

Speculations were rife that Dhingra, who also happens to be the director of Kapil’s second film – Firangi – didn’t get along well with the other members on the team. But that apparently isn’t the truth.

The official Twitter handle of ‘Firangi’ tweeted: “@dhingra_rajiv  never joined as a cd.he was jus helping me : @KapilSharmaK9 (sic).”

Defending his friend during an interview with Mumbai Mirror, Sharma said, “Firangi wrapped up in March with just one promotional video and song left to be shot in Mumbai. The cancellation of the shoots had nothing to do with Rajiv. He came to my aid when I needed a creative director. People have been dragging his name into controversies for no reason and I'm embarrassed (sic).”

For the uninitiated, Kapil has taken a break to take good care of his health.
