Sharma, the popular host of the equally popular show "CMWK" has been in news for his grand Bollywood debut with Yash Raj Films (YRF) in the recent days.
The actor, who signed a three-film deal with the established production house, is soon to start shooting his first film "Bank Chor." And amidst the film shooting news, reports are being circulated that the actor might give up his hit show owing to his busy schedule.
The rumour got stronger as the comedian admitted that balancing the two-episode per week of the show with film's schedule is a tough call.
However, Sharma has now rubbished the quitting reports as baseless as he responded to a fan's question on the same on Twitter recently.

Sharma may be going strong with "CNWK," but the actor's tightly packed schedule has eaten up his other commitments. As per certain reports, the actor is unlikely to take up his hosting role in the upcoming reality show "Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa" Season 7."
Meanwhile, "CNWK" after having celebrities like Amitabh Bachchan, Sushmita Sen and Jeetendra on board in the recent weeks, will have the original "Disco Dancer" Mithun Chakraborty on sets.
The senior actor will appear this week sharing the stage with showman Subhash Ghai and the remaining cast of his upcoming film "Kaanchi."
Sharma enacting his jovial host role will also be seen doing belly dance for the "OMG- Oh My God!" actor in the episode, reported The Times of India.
