We bring you the behind-the-scenes drama which led to the announcement that The Kapil Sharma Show is going off the air and the man who was responsible for Kapil Sharma’s exit.
Little do you know who has largely been responsible for ruining Kapil Sharma’s glorious run on national television! The man in question is Rajiv Dhingra, who is directing Kapil’s upcoming film Firangi.
After the mid-air fracas with Sunil Grover, which resulted in a large part of the team (Sunil Grover, Ali Asgar, Sugandha Mishra) disowning Kapil, Rajiv Dhingra was appointed as the creative director of the show.
And lo- bet you didn’t know that Sony called a closed-door meeting at Juhu Marriott to save the show from going off air about 100 hours before the announcement of closure was made.
The biggest surprise of this meeting was that a lot of the old team, including the writers who had left the show in March, were summoned back. However, they told Sony that they would love to come back but only if Dhingra was not at the helm.
