Actor, comedian, Kapil Sharma has been accused of being abusive and physical to Sunil Grover aka Dr. Mashoor Gulati/Rinku Bhabhi on a flight from Australia to India.
Reportedly, Kapil was in a drunken state when he humiliated and abused Sunil Grover on a packed flight. However, after much of speculations, Kapil admitted fighting with Sunil and also apologised to him publicly.
According to the reports by Hindustan Times, Kapil had consumed an entire bottle of whisky, and and was high in spirits. When the food was being served by the cabin crew, his team (the crew and cast of Kapil’s TV show, The Kapil Sharma Show, who had gone to Australia for a show) started to eat. This angered Kapil, who was still finishing his drink.
“Jab maine khaana shuru nahi kiya toh tum logo ne kaise le liya khaana?” yelled Kapil within the ear shot of other passengers on-board. Taken aback by this abrupt burst-out, TKSS stars started returning their half-finished food trays. This is when Sunil Grover jumped into the picture and tried to calm Kapil down. “Kapil got up, took off his shoe, and hit Sunil,” the source was quoted by the daily, adding, “He also pulled Sunil’s collar, and repeatedly slapped him.”
A crew member also ended up getting hit in the scuffle that broke between Sunil and Kapil. Grover tried to keep his calm and was trying to tell Kapil to not create a scene. By this time, Kapil’s abuses were so loud that he could be heard also where the economy class passengers were sitting. When the cabin crew asked Kapil’s team to calm him down, they refused and said they were scared. Kapil shouted at his team and said, “Tum logon ko maine banaya hai. Sabka career khatam kar dunga. Tum TV waale kya samajhte ho? Sabko nikaal dunga main,” the daily quotes the source. Kapil continues to insult Sunil left, right and center, even taking a dig at him quitting, Comedy Nights with Kapil and starting his own show , “Gaya tha na tu toh. Aaya na waapas mere hi paas.”
Most of the passengers were rattled by now and many of them requested the crew to take emergency steps. The leading daily further quotes the source adding, While yelling, Kapil also kept loudly abusing in Punjabi. At some point, the cabin crew told Kapil that they would have to call security on landing, if he didn’t stop. He, however, kept repeating, “Arrey yeh log samajhte kya hai. In sab ka career meri wajah se hai.”
