In the most recent show of Khabardar aired on 1st of April, the show host Aftab Iqbal announced that the airing episode of the show would be the last one and the show would be aired again sometime in August. The show host did not provide any information relating the date or the channel it would resume back on.
Looking at the date and seeing the trend in the air, could this be an attempt by the most well-loved show with an extensive international audience that the show team is trying to make the fans April fool and are not actually suspending the show till August.
Recently, Elon Musk tried fooling all on the 1st of April by tweeting that Tesla has gone bankrupt. This was a corporate level April fools prank that could be picked and broadcasted by anyone without even giving it a thought.
Khabardar is an Urdu-Punjabi comedy television show that is on aired at 11:03 pm on the Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays on the news channel Express News. It was started back in the year 2015.

During the entire show the comedians keep throwing and charming the show with funny or sarcastic one-liners.
