New Delhi: With Kapil Sharma's evergreen stories of a high ego and deteriorating health issues, the cancellation of the special episode of the ninth season of the very popular Kaun Banega Crorepati with Amitabh Bachchan does not really come as a surprise. On eralier ocassions too many shoots with popular stars with Kapil Sharma for his show The Kapil Sharma Show have been cancelled. And for all these unfortunate episodes, Kapil Sharma is blamed.
But this is a poetic injustice to the most popular comedy king of Indian TV. The shooting of the special show of KBC was because of the strike by the film and TV workers. They had earlier threatened to go on an indeterminate strike in case their demands were not met. The deadline was that of August 15.
said workers, who are members of Federation of Western India Cine Employees (FWICE), had made a demand for their salary hike, to ensure an eight-hour shift, and also accidental and medical insurance. But their demands were not met and thefore they all are on an indefinite strike. Nearly 2,65,000 employees went on an indefinite strike from August 16 and are protesting outside the main gate of Film City.
