Comedian Kapil Sharma has been in news and is making people laugh ever since the first episode of his show ‘Comedy Nights with Kapil’ aired on Colors TV, but for last one week, he is in the news for no jolly reason. According to recent speculations, Sunil Grover who plays the character of Dr. Mashoor Gulati has quit the show, team member Chandan Prabhakar who plays the ‘chaiwalla’ and Ali Asgar who plays the character of ‘nani’, boycotted the shooting for the show recently. According to a report in the Indian Express, Sunil, Chandan and Ali did not turn up for the shooting on Monday. The show was hosting the Naam Shabana team and only Kiku Sharda, Rochelle Rao and Sumona Chakravarti were available for the shoot after which turned the situation tense after which Kapil’s team called up other comedians like Ahsaan Qureshi, Raju Shrivastava and Sunil Pal for the day’s shooting.
Kapil Sharma’s close friend Chandan Prabhakar told an entertainment website that he did not show up for the shooting on Tuesday. He said, “Yes, I am not shooting with Kapil today. They called me but I refused. I told them that I am unavailable.” The Indian Express quoted sources saying, “Sunil is unlikely to return the way things are. Ali and Chandan are also staying away from the show. While Navjot Singh Sidhu has said he will stay with the show, how long can he manage with his new political commitments? Kapil Sharma Show is faced with tough times.”
The fight between Kapil Sharma and Sunil Grover started during their Australia tour, where the show host who was drunk at that moment reportedly abused and shouted at Chandan Prabhakar. When Sunil Grover tried to stop him, Kapil verbally and physically assaulted and said that thy are mere ‘daily wage earners.’
After returning to India Kapil Sharma turned to twitter to apologise, he wrote- “Paji @WhoSunilGrover sry if I hurt u unintentionally.u knw vry well how much I luv u. M also upset .love n regards always:)”
He also posted on Facebook-
Sunil Grover replied to Kapil Sharma’s apology and said- “From a friend, with love @KapilSharmaK9”
Spat between the two continues but there is no official confirmation about who is staying and who is leaving the show. An earlier fight between Kapil and Sunil had led to the later quitting the show, but he returned to the show after a while.
