On Monday, mid-day reported that representatives of the film's team had guaranteed confirmation from the show's managers before arriving on sets. Several reports also stated that a 15-minute long wait and several unanswered phone calls to Kapil Sharma later, Ajay and his co-stars left the sets. When the 48-year-old actor was asked if he found the inconvenience caused by the show's team as rude, he said: "It's not like that. Many shows have got cancelled in the past. And he is not keeping well for quite some time. I don't know what happened," reported IANS.
Earlier this year, shooting for two of Kapil Sharma Show episodes had to be cancelled - one was for a show with Arjun Kapoor and his Mubarakan co-stars and also for an episode in which Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma were to promote Jab Harry Met Sejal. There have been reports that Ajay has vowed to not return on Kapil's show and addressing such speculation, he told IANS: "Shah Rukh Khan has also not said anywhere that he will never come on the show, and neither have I. It (the statement) has been given by you guys (signalling at the media at the event)". "We are colleagues. Everyone is doing good work here. We will meet with love when we meet next," he added.
Kapil Sharma has reportedly been under immense stress following the dipping TRP ratings of his show. He was diagnosed with low blood pressure and advised complete bed rest, as his sister Pooja told Dainik Bhaskar last month. The Kapil Sharma Show lost its popularity after the Kapil allegedly assaulted former colleague Sunil Grover during a mid-air altercation on their way back from Melbourne.
Chandan Prabhakar, comedian Bharti Singh and her fiance Harsh Limbachiyaa, Kiku Sharda are currently part of Kapil's show. Archana Puran Singh has recently replaced series regular Navjot Singh Sidhu.
Ajay Devgn co-stars with Emraan Hashmi, Ileana D'Cruz and Esha Gupta in Baadshaho, which releases on September 1.
