Kapil Sharma’s new show, which struggled to win over fans in its first few episodes, has reportedly been suspended by the channel for almost a month. According to a report in The Indian Express, Family Time With Kapil Sharma will not air new episodes for the whole of April as the show’s host has been keeping unwell and cancelling shoots every week.
The reports quotes an anonymous ‘highly placed source close to the current show,’ who agrees that the show failed to do well. “See the first episode of Kapil’s latest show was nothing like its predecessor…It only did well on TRP charts as Kapil has a very ardent fan following and was going to be back on television after a hiatus of seven months. So naturally, his fans did watch their favourite comedian’s new show but it lacked the punch that they expected,” the source said. Although Family Time With Kapil Sharma premiered on March 25, so far only three episodes of the show have been aired, as Kapil cancelled shoots last week too including the one with Rani Mukerji. As a result, Sony TV aired old episodes of The Kapil Sharma Show last weekend
