New Delhi:

Kapil Sharma and controversies seem to be going hand-in-hand and looks like troubles for him aren't in a mood to subside as of now.

The renowned comedian, who recently struggled to make his way back on the small screen with his new show 'Family Time With Kapil Sharma', will be getting another blow now as the makers of his show has decided to put it on hold.

According to the reports, the makers have reportedly suspended FTWKSS for a month and no shooting will be held in April.

As per a report published in Indian Express, a source was quoted saying, “See the first episode of Kapil’s latest show was nothing like its predecessor. It was a hotchpotch of too many things put in together for this 90s style game show. 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. However, owing to personal issues, he had to cancel Rani Mukerji’s shoot and this left us in a lurch.”

The source further stated that the team has no bank of episodes and they won't be shooting for April. 

"We did not have a bank of episodes to air as the show had just begun. Also, his health issues or personal issues has been deviating his attention and focus from work. In such a scenario, it is better that we keep the show on hold for now. At least the whole of April, we aren’t shooting. We will figure out the rest once he feels better. Right now, we want to him get better first. So that once he is back, he is completely devoted to work like he has always been," the source added.

Indeed, it is a hard time going on for Kapil Sharma not just on the professional but personal front too.

Notably, Kapil's downfall is said to have begun post his ugly spat with co-star Sunil Grover after which several members of The Kapil Sharma Show chose to walk out. This led to a massive impact on the show's TRP and TKSS was pulled down.
