Mumbai: Superstar Shah Rukh Khan expressed disappointment over the end of actor-comedian Kapil Sharma's hit television show Comedy Nights With Kapil and said that he wants to see more of him.

Celebrities at the calendar launch event for photographer Dabboo Ratnani spoke about Kapil and his show, which will reportedly go off air on January 17.

"He's a very talented man, one of the best stand-up comics we have. Apart from that, the film that he has done Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon, he's done very good work in it. Hope he does something else soon so that we all can be entertained," said Shah Rukh. (Also Read: For Kapil Sharma, Comedy Happened 'Accidentally')

Actor-director Farhan Akhtar said: "I do believe that it is coming to an end. I think Kapil is a very talented guy. He has plans for himself in his life. I wish him all the best. He's a very sweet boy and I just hope that whatever he plans for himself, he can achieve that."

Many actors have come on the show multiple times for promotion of their films.

Actresses Alia Bhatt and Shraddha Kapoor, however, were unaware that the show was going off air.

Alia said: "Rubbish! Really? I think the promotions might become a bit dull without Comedy Nights With Kapil, without Kapil being in our lives. During promotions, we always look forward to going on his show and have a good laugh. But he'll do movies now, his film is doing well."

Shraddha said: "I've been quite disconnected. Is it going off? That's really very sad if it'll go off."

Kapil was reportedly miffed with the channel for giving another show of a similar name more prominence and hence decided to take it off air. But there are reports that Kapil is planning to come back with the show on another channel.

That's what even Sidharth Malhotra heard. "I've heard that he'll come back again. So it's a short break. It's an amazing show; he entertains people. Comedy is very difficult and I think he's the best comedian we have. Looking forward to his comeback."

Some of the actors of the show such as Sunil Grover, Kiku Sharda, Ali Asgar and Sumona Chakravarti have become household names because of the show.
