Kapil Sharma, who recently turned 37 on April 2, made his TV comeback with Family Time With Kapil Sharma on Sony TV. The comedy game show, which aired on March 25, failed to make a good impression on the audience. In comparison to The Kapil Sharma Show, the comedy king’s new show was tagged as “no good”. Now, buzz has it that the show will be going off air soon. Family Time with Kapil Sharma has been slated for 26 episodes, but the makers may cut it to 15-20 episodes, a according to reports.
“They wanted Kapil to hold a press conference, but he asked them for time. He told them he will address the media after a couple of episodes are aired. Now, there is an internal dispute going on about how many episodes should be aired”, a source was quoted as saying to DNA.
Kapil Sharma’s new show is a fun game show where members of a family compete with each other in games and fun activities. Family Time with Kapil Sharma is more like 2001’s popular show Khullja Sim Sim with Kapil Sharma as a host. The show replaced kids dancing reality show Super Dancer 2.
Kapil’s old pals Kiku Sharda and Chandan Prabhakar returned in the new show. They were instrumental in making Comedy Nights With Kapil and The Kapil Sharma Show a huge success. While Kiku had stayed with the comedian despite the fight with Sunil, Chandan left Kapil’s show after the fracas.
Ever since Kapil Sharma’s mid-air feud with good friend and TKSS co-star Sunil Grover, the comedian’s career has dipped. He even tried his hand in Bollywood film Firangi, which doomed at the box-office.
