Ace comedian Kapil Sharma, who was recently going through a very rough patch in his life, looks all set for his new movie. During the trailer launch of Firangi, Kapil opened up like never before. He cleared the air about the many "rumours" that floated during the time he was unwell and recovering at a rehab.
During that time he was so stressed out that he cancelled several shoots of his show, including ones that were to feature Shah Rukh Khan, Anil Kapoor, Arjun Kapoor and Ajay Devgn. That time he made headlines for reportedly making the stars wait on sets, cancelling shoots and not turning up for the show.
For the first time, he narrated his side of the story and said: "Some people understood my problem, but some spread rumours."
"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.
According to Kapil, Shah Rukh had a brief conversation with him, following the cancellation of the shoot: "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."
Last month, Kapil Sharma told 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."
Kapil Sharma was embroiled in various controversies and began losing popularity after an alleged mid-air altercation with Sunil Grover. Kapil Sharma's new movie Firangi is scheduled to hit screens on November 24.
