Mumbai: The Kapil Sharma Show seems to be facing its biggest test. The main face behind the hugely popular comedy show on Sony has recently been hogging the limelight for all the wrong reasons. Kapil Sharma is accused of hitting his colleague, Sunil Grover, with shoes on a flight.
Reports suggest that a heavily drunk Kapil Sharma targeted Sunil Grover, first by hurling abuses at him and then trying to beat him with his shoes. Grover, who had once gone solo, is visibly enraged and hasn’t returned to the popular show for shooting.
There are apparently several people in the show who have openly criticized Kapil Sharma for his unruly behavior. They claim that it is not the first time that the highest paid comedian in the country has shown such unruly behavior against his colleagues. There are reports that not just Sunil Grover is staying away from the shooting of the show, but others including Chandan Prabhakar and Ali Asgar Ali and others are staying away from the shooting.
The problem became so acute this past Wednesday that the shooting for the super duper popular show had to be cancelled. Insiders claim that many other people who are integral part of it stayed away from the shoot, forcing Kapil Sharma, the highest paid TV host in the country to cancel the shooting.
Reports suggest that as Sunil Grover, Chandan Prabhakar and Ali Asgar boycotted it on the third consecutive day and no replacements could be brought in at the last minute, the shooting couldn’t be done. There were reports that Raju Srivastava, another popular comedian was being brought onboard. But the reports were premature and baseless. A report in the Indian express said “Raju Srivastava just shot for an episode. He hasn’t signed the show. The situation right now is such that we are stuck. People are trying to convince him (Sunil). Kapil has been talking to him. People are discussing with each other what can be done about this.”
In the meantime there are reports that Kapil Sharma actually apologized Grover through social media. Kapil Sharma accepted that a fight had taken place with Sunil but added that it is a family matter and they will soon solve it. Kapil also apologized to Sunil on Twitter later. Nonetheless, Sunil Grover seems to be in an unforgiving mood. By the way who can forgive an assailant who used shoe to thrash him? He is extremely upset and feels that his self-respect is shattered. He took to Twitter and wrote, “From a friend, with love @KapilSharmaK9.” In response to Grover tweet, Sharma said in another tweet “@WhoSunilGrover paji dil jitt liya tusi.. now I love u more n more n more .. hun bada mazaa aan wala a.. akal aan to baad.. I love u.”
