After the recent reports of Kapil Sharma getting sloshed on board an Air India flight and physically and verbally assaulting his co-star Sunil Grover, the latter on Tuesday wrote a post for Sharma ‘with love’ in which he said that he was deeply hurt. “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. 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 traveling with you. Thanks for making me realize it was your show and you have the power to throw out anybody, anytime. You are the wittiest, and best in your field. But don’t act like a ‘God’! Take good care of yourself. Wish you lots more success and fame,” he tweeted.
Comedy Nights with Kapil’s entire team was recently in Australia for a tour, and the incident took place when the actors were returning back to India. According to an Indian Express report, Kapil in a drunken state misbehaved with Sunil and later abused him loudly on the flight. Sunil, however, kept quiet but Kapil went ahead and physically assaulted him. It was only then the cabin crew members had to intervene and the situation was brought under control. Sunil later apologized to everyone in the flight for the drunken behavior of his friend. However, a day later, BollywoodLife reported Kapil saying that they have regular fights, fight for ‘good work.’ However, many media houses are saying that Sunil, who is popular as Dr. Mashoor Gulati and Rinku Bhabhi, has decided to quit the show.

This is not the first time that they are having a fight. In 2013 also Sunil Grover left Comedy Nights With Kapil to start his own show. He, however, returned to the show within a few months.
Just prior to the incident, Kapil introduced his girlfriend Ginni on Twitter by sharing a picture with his fans. In his tweet, he said, “Will not say she is my better half… She completes me… Love you, Ginni… Please welcome her… I love her so much.”
