The hugely popular TV show. ‘Comedy Nights with Kapil’ is going off-air in September 2014 and the reason for this is Kapil latching on to his movie career.
The star comedian who brought laughter back in the reckoning wrote on Twitter, ‘Comedy Nights with Kapil is going off air from September. We will come back with new characters and new set. Till then, keep smiling.”
The reason for the show winding up is because Kapil has been signed for the lead role for a comedy movie ‘Bank Chor’ with Yash Raj Film. The commitment for the movie was going to affect his popular show and his live shows.
Kapil had actually tried to reason out with the channel and said that he would shoot four episodes a month instead of the eight but the channel was not ready to accept that proposal. Kapil confirmed” I had planned to shoot for the show once a week during the shooting of my film. But the channel is not ready to listen. I can’t create a bank of episodes for 2 onths because all the stars who come on Comedy Nights with Kapil come to promote their films and I had to take a call.” Kapil said that he had to give a commitment of forty days at a stretch for the film, which was to have happened sooner or later, luckily for him, he could still pull the show on for a longer time.
