It has been a while now that Sony TV’s The Kapil Sharma Show is considered a perfect platform to promote films or shows, mainly because it is watched by family members and a wide range of audiences. Till date, many popular celebrities have graced the show in order to promote their films or shows. Be it Shahrukh Khan, Salman Khan to Sania Mirza and Harbhajan Singh there is no industry left from where the celebrities have not paid a visit to the show.
But as usual there exists some exceptions everywhere. So yes there are some celebs, who despite being extended an invitation couldn’t make it. And the reason in most cases is their busy schedule.
Living Cricket Legend: Sachin Tendulkar on the eve of the release of his TV Biopic. Sachin: A Billion Dreams was invited to Kapil’s show, but the cricketer refused to promote the documentary. Rumors are that his busy schedule kept him away from the show. Sachin’s wife Anjali Tendulkar was also extended an invitation by Navjot Singh Sidhu.
Sunil Gavaskar has also been a part of the show (through a video call) when the entire cricket team of ’83 came on the show.
Beginning from Virat Kohli, Yuvraj Singh to legends like Kapil Dev and Brett Lee, many cricketers have been a part of the show, but Mahendra Singh Dhoni couldn’t make it to the show despite being invited many a time, due to his busy schedule.
Shahrukh Khan and Salman Khan have graced Kapil’s show a lot of times. But till date Industry’s 3rd Khan i.e. Aamir Khan hasn’t appeared on Kapil’s show even once, although he has been invited a number of times.
The irony is that Aamir Khan had turned up at a few selected shows like Koffee With Karan.
South Superstar Rajinikanth was also invited to the show before the release of his movies, but too he hasn’t graced the show till date.
There could be one reason behind some absents mentioned above: Dr. Mashoor Gulati (Sunil Grover). After his departure, the show has suffered a considerable amount of TRP loss and news comes in regular intervals that both Kapil Sharma (Show Host) and Salman Khan who is also one of the show producers are making regular efforts to convince him to come back.
Let’s Hope For The Best.
