Kapil Sharma’s recent infamous squabbling with an entertainment portal has led Sony Entertainment Television to suspend the newly launched show, Family Times With Kapil, for a month. Times of India, a daily, reported that the channel was planning to replace the show with a new one in a similar format. The report also suggested that the new show will be hosted by actor-stand up comedian Vir Das.
However, Das has denied any such development. In a tweet, Das clarified that he is not doing any show on any channel.
“There have been few articles that suggest I’m in talks to replace Kapil Sharma and his show. In response to the several queries coming my way, no I’m not doing any show, no I’m not doing any show on any network,’ Das wrote.
Praising Sharma, Das stated that the Family Time With Kapil host is irreplaceable.
“Kapil has accumulated a great deal of appreciation for himself over the years, and his space isn’t something that can be replaced. I develop my projects from scratch, based on my own comedic ideas. I wish him and his show well. Hope that clears things,” added Das.
