- "Some people understood my problem," said Kapil
- "Shah Rukh Khan came to meet me," he added
- Shah Rukh Khan advised Kapil Sharma to take rest
"People wrote stories like I've sent Shah Rukh Khan away from my sets. The thing is I reached the set at 2 pm, and SRK was supposed to come at 7 p.m. He was shooting nearby and somewhere at 8 pm, I suddenly felt that I cannot shoot, I won't be able to go on set, I cancelled the shoot and then I cancelled the second shot, third and fourth," said Kapil. Earlier it was reported that Kapil had fainted during the shoot of the episode featuring Shah Rukh.
Kapil said, following the cancellation, Shah Rukh did have a brief conversation with him: "Shah Rukh Khan came to meet me, he advised me 'Take rest and set your mind', and I took his advice and took a break. I even talked to Anil Kapoor as I was feeling guilty about cancelling the shoot."
The other stars, who turned back from the sets of The Kapil Sharma Show are Ajay Devgn and Arjun Kapoor. Ajay said his team had to leave because Kapil did not turn up while Arjun tweeted to say that Kapil may have cancelled the shoot but did not keep his team waiting. Last month, Kapil refuted the many reports, telling Times of India: "Am I stupid to cancel 5 shoots and make superstars wait. What pleasure will I get in doing this? Why will I give excuses and my reputation in the industry."
