- Sony bosses say Kapil will be 'back with a bang' very soon
- Kapil's show was taken off-air in August
- Kapil Sharma is awaiting the release of Firangi on November 24
In August Sony TV had announced that The Kapil Sharma Show will be taken off air soon to give the frontman time to recuperate. Kapil Sharma had been cancelling shoots due to his ill-health and was advised by Shah Rukh Khan to take time off and recover fully.
Things started to disintegrate for Kapil's show after his fight with former co-star Sunil Grover. The reshuffling of cast members and the beginning of a rival Krushna Abhishek's comedy show on the same channel took a toll on Kapil's health. In August a spokesperson from the channel said that Kapil and Sony TV bosses have "mutually agreed to take a short break" and the show will be back once Kapil Sharma recovers fully. Kapil, who confessed to have struggled with alcoholism, checked into a rehab and returned once things were sorted.
Firangi also stars Ishita Dutta and is directed by Rajiv Dhingra.
