A lot has been written and said about comedian turned actor Kapil Sharma ever since his mid-air fight with Sunil Grover. TRPs of ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’ drastically fell since then, which in a way affect Kapil’s health. In fact, speculations were also doing rounds that ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’ is going off-air owing to its falling TRP. However, Kapil has finally rubbished the rumours.
In an interview to Dainik Bhaskar, Kapil for the first time cleared the air surrounding his health, suffering from depression, his show going off-air and much more. Since last few days, it is being said that Kapil is in depression due to the falling TRP of his show. Speaking on the same, he said, “It (depression) is just a big term for me (laughs). Apart from low blood pressure, I am not at all facing any health issues. I have started taking care of my diet and body. I am perfectly fine now.”
Kapil further explained how was busy juggling between his film and the show, which is affecting his health in a big way. “For the past few months, I was juggling my time between The Kapil Sharma Show and my film, ‘Firangi’. I was working day and night. I wasn’t getting much time to take care of my health. Also, I had stopped doing regular exercises and workouts. This led to developing low blood pressure. Now, I have changed my routine and my health is completely fine,” he said.
The comedian star was also asked about the speculations of his show going off-air. To which he replied, “Believe me or not, I get to hear such kind of news from the media people itself. Nobody from Sony Channel has come to me and spoken about it. In fact, the channel people have always been kind to me; they support me a lot. ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’ is not going off air; we are busy shooting for it.”
Speaking on why he made his guests Shah Rukh Khan, Anil Kapoor, Arjun Kapoor and others wait for hours on the sets, Kapil confessed, “I was under a lot of pressure and that’s fair enough. We all have our ups and down in terms of health; don’t we? I felt sick and that’s okay. It was genuine and people around me understood that. However, I did not keep anyone waiting on the set.”
