The Kapil Sharma Show is making a comeback and while fans are elated about the same, it has seen two massive setbacks so far.

After Krushna Abhishek's exit from the show owing to 'pay' problems, it has now been reported by Pinkvilla that the comedy show's other veteran performer Chandan Prabhakar, who has played numerous hilarious characters on The Kapil Sharma Show over the years, has confirmed to the entertianment portal that he won’t be coming back for the new season.

“I will not be a part of this season of The Kapil Sharma Show and there is no specific reason. I just wanted to take a break," Chandan told Pinkvilla. 

It is worth mentioning that the comedian was part of the original promo that the show had floated out at the time of the annoucement and his character was also supposed to have a wife in this season. Chandan wanting to take a break after going so far with the entire process has come off as shocking to some. 

Even Bharti Singh, who was considered a star comedian and one of the biggest highlights of the show, will not be back. 

She told Pinkvilla in an interview that she is 'on a break'. 

"I am on a short break, and I am doing Sa Re Ga Ma Pa (Li’l Champs 9) too. So it’s not that I won’t do The Kapil Sharma Show, but I won’t be able to be regular there. Main dikhungi, par ‘beech beech’ mein dikhungi (I will be a part of the show but not regularly) because I also have a baby now, and have some shows and events too."

Recently, as reported by Pinkvilla, Krushna Abhishek will not be a part of the hit show, The Kapil Sharma Show, due to 'agreement issues' with the management. 

Soon after, stories of Kapil and Krushna not getting along anymore started doing the rounds. However, with the latest video of the duo enjoying 'muft ka massage' in Australia has put the rumours to rest. 

In the video, the actor-comedians can be seen enjoying a massage session where the masseur informs Krushna that the first fifteen minutes of the session is free, and if the service is extended beyond that time frame, they will be charged. To which, in true comedian style, Krushna asks the masseur about how long they (Krushna and Kapil) have been availing the parlour's services, and she informs the duo that their fifteen minutes are over. The duo then jumps out of their chairs. This hilarious reaction to the lady's answer leaves everyone around laughing. 

Before taking off to Australia, Krushna Abhishek had addressed these rumours (which he was clueless about) and said, "I love him and he loves me too. The Kapil Sharma Show is my show too, and I will be back soon."

As for The Kapil Sharma Show, the beloved comedy show is making a comeback on Indian television on September 10 and has Srishty Rode playing an interesting character, as reported by Pinkvilla.
