Chandan Prabhakar, who plays the role of Chandu on Sony TV's "The Kapil Sharma Show," is rumoured to be quitting the comedy show. According to reports, the ace comedian will be a part of a new comedy show, "Indian Mazaa League," which will be produced by Ekta Kapoor.
"Indian Mazaa League" will be aired at Life OK channel and with both the shows being telecast on different channels, rumour has it that Chandan will exit Kapil's show due to certain possible disagreements between the makers of the two shows.
While Chandan confirmed his participation on the new show, he denied quitting "The Kapil Sharma Show" claiming that Kapil has no issues with him doing another show. "As of now, I am not quitting 'The Kapil Sharma Show' and Kapil has no issues with me doing 'Indian Mazak League'. There would have been a problem only if the two shows were airing at the same time. Kapil's show is very dear to me and there is no way I will quit it," he told the Times of India.
According to reports, "Indian Mazaa League" will feature many popular faces, including Vrajesh Hirjee, Rashami Desai and Saloni Daini. Actress Amruta Khanvilkar will be hosting the show.
Recently, another member of "The Kapil Sharma Show" was rumoured to be taking the exit route. Sumona Chakravarti, who plays the role of Dr.Mashoor Gulati's (Sunil Grover) daughter Sarla on the show, was said to be planning to quit the show.
Sumona, who had played Kapil's wife Manju on "Comedy Night with Kapil," was apparently upset with the makers of "The Kapil Sharma Show" as they were planning to introduce a new character who would play Kapil's love interest. However, Sumona refuted reports of exiting "The Kapil Sharma Show" and said that she enjoyed her role on the show.
