- "I just need some time off," he said
- "My work is my worship," he added
- Kapil Sharma's new show has been put on hold for now
Recently, his former co-star Ali Asgar, in an interview to ABP, claimed that Kapil was 'close to tears' when he met him and said that Preeti Simoes (Kapil Sharma's rumoured ex-girlfriend and also his former show's creative director) had asked him to meet the comedian once. However, Kapil refuted the claims and said it's 'not true.' "It is hurtful to read things which are not true. I am learning to focus only on my work and not pay heed to any negativity. My work is my worship and that's what means the most to me. What is most damaging and hurtful is when comments are made by those people that you consider your friends and your well-wishers. Over the years, I have always been about my work and that is what continues to drive me. Irrespective of what is said, my work will continue to be my biggest motivation," he told IANS.
Some weekends ago, several abusive posts from his Twitter account shocked the social media. Later, he clarified that his account was hacked. He had also filed an extortion case against producers Neeti and Preeti Simoes.

Last year, Kapil Sharma and his ex-colleague Sunil Grover parted ways after a massive fight. Sunil Grover quit the show and then Ali Asgar and others followed him. The Kapil Sharma Show went off air due to failing TRPs and Kapil by that time had resorted to heavy drinking. After a year, when Kapil was prepping for his comeback show Family Time With Kapil Sharma, the duo trended for their Twitter chat, in which Kapil claimed that Sunil was 'lying' and he had approached him for the new show.
