Things are not looking great for the Kapil Sharma and his Show. It is not just struggling for TRPs, but also for its very survival. The show has been hit by a massive negative publicity after the mid-air spat between Kapil and Sunil Grover.
The actor-comedian, who has mostly stayed silent until now, has spoken up and his tone is very different.
Sunil is definitely hurt and shocked with the way he was treated by a drunk Kapil onboard a flight from Melbourne to Mumbai some 10 days back. Speaking to Bollywood Hungama, Sunil has now said: “I am very relaxed, very introspective, deep in thought about my future plans…I am just watching all the tamasha that’s going on. It’s very entertaining.”
The same report also had one of Sunil’s friend opening up on behalf of the actor: “Sunil is neither interested in a meeting with Kapil nor is he physically or emotionally up to it. He is now taking off for an unknown destination with his wife and son for a recuperative holiday.”
Kapil Sharma did try to meet Sunil Grover but was met with a far from enthusiastic response. Says Sunil’s friend: “Sunil won’t meet Kapil. Kapil’s regret and apology happened only after his mid-air behaviour was exposed. If no one spoke about it he would have continued in his own way. On numerous occasions he has insulted Sunil and the other team members. Unforgivably, Sunil and the others overlooked Kapil’s growing highhandedness. ‘Chalo chalo show record karte hain,’ they’d say every time after his rude behaviour. Not this time. Kapil needs to know he is wrong. There is no going back.”
