Comedian Kapil Sharma who has reportedly been shuttling between the shoot of his Kapil Sharma Show and upcoming film 'Firangi' fainted last night on the sets of his TV show. 

According to media reports, Shah Rukh Khan and director Imtiaz Ali were scheduled to make a special appearance for the promotion of their film 'Jab Harry Met Sejal' slated to release on August 4.  The reports further say that Sharma began to feel uneasy backstage and had to leave the shoot to visit a doctor. The shooting for the episode, therefore, was stalled, and SRK had to return home.  

His fellow comedian Kiku Sharda told the media that Sharma is currently hospitalised and has his family by his side. He told, "Yes, Shah Rukh Khan was shooting in the Film City vicinity for some promo shoot last night. By the time he came on the sets, Kapil had already left for a checkup. He was feeling uneasy and the doctors advised him to get admitted. Kapil is still in the hospital and his family is with him. Now our regular shooting is on 11th and 13th July, but I don't know which film's star cast will be visiting our sets."

Kapil Sharma was last month admitted for high blood pressure and low sugar.
