The well known stand-up comedian cum host of Sony’s Kaante Ki Takkar, Shakeel has gone back to his home town in Pakistan after the terror attacks that hit Mumbai. The news is that he will not be returning for the grand finale of the show.
“After the 26/11 terror attack in Mumbai, many Pakistani actors are leaving the country and going back to their home town. Shakeel was one of them who had to forcefully leave the show and go due to political pressures,” says our khabroo.
There was a buzz that another show called Shakeel made in China was about to replace Kaante Ki Takkar, but now there are very less chances of his visibility in the show. “The name of the show and format may see some changes now. However, nothing has been confirmed as yet,” concludes our source.
Shakeel has been the face of Kaante Ki Takkar and not having him in the finale would be a big loss. Well we hope everything turns out to be fine soon…
