Sunil Grover and Kapil Sharma are making headlines all over again. After the two had an altercation mid-air in which Kapil is reported to have physically and verbally attacked Sunil, the host of The Kapil Sharma Show came out with a clarification on Facebook, “I meet my brother once in a year.. n spending almost everyday with my team.. specially sunil .. I love him.. I respect him.. yes I had a argue with him.but r we not normal people..?I shouted at him first time in 5 years .. itna to chalta hai bhai.” The telling thing is that Sunil is yet to say anything beyond ‘no comments’ about the whole episode even as buzz grows louder that he is he planning to quit The Kapil Sharma Show?
Kapil assaulted Sunil Grover during a flight from Melbourne, where they did a stage show. He was merely trying to calm down Kapil, who was drunk and hurling abuses at another team member, Chandan (Prabhakar).
Kapil allegedly also took a swipe at a comedy show, Mad in India, that Sunil had launched after parting ways with him after their first fall-out in 2014. “A female passenger asked Kapil to keep quiet, so Sunil told him, ‘Paaji tussi gaali mat do’. But, this angered Kapil further and he started abusing him. Sunil also lost his temper but was stopped by the other members of the team. He then walked to the economy class but Kapil followed him and hit him.
Kapil even hurled abuses at colleagues Ali Asgar aka Naani and Kiku Sharda aka Bumper Lottery, calling them “per day artistes” or daily wage earners, according to Spotboye. He even threatened to end their acts on his show.
Now, looks like their fight has gone public as both have taken to social media to communicate their responses. It all starte with Kapil’s Twitter apology in which he wrote,
To which Sunil replied this morning by writing a note which said,
“Bhai ji! Yes, You hurt me deeply. Working with you has been a learning experience. Just one advice start respecting human beings also apart from animals. All are not as successful as you are. All are not as talented as you are. But if they all are talented like you, who will value you. so, have some gratitude towards their existence. And also, If someone is correcting you, don’t abuse that person. Refrain from using foul language In front of women who have nothing to do with the stardom you carry, they are by chance just travelling with you. Thanks for making me realise it was your show and you have power to throw out anybody, anytime. you are the wittiest, and the best in your field. But don’t act like a ‘God’.’ Take good care of yourself. Wish you lot more success and fame.”
Now, Kapil Sharma has replied to Sunil’s note on Twitter. He wrote,
Kapil also added that he will visit Sunil at his home in the evening today.
Now, whether they’ll be able to sort out their differences which started after Kapil, in a drunken state, abused Sunil, both verbally and physically, in a flight on their way back from Australia, or not remains to be seen. After their fight, it has been reported that Sunil is most likely to quit Kapil’s show.
