‘The Figure Quoted Is A Highly Exaggerated One’

What If More Shoots Are Cancelled?
As per the source, the channel has four episodes. But the show is supposed to air on Saturday and Sunday and very soon, the bank of episodes would be over! It is also being said that depression has again set in Kapil. What if the comedian continues to cancel the shoot?
