Sunil Grover clueless about exits and replacements on ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’

The Kapil SharmaSunil Grover fiasco does not seem to be ending any time soon. Among the many reports and developments that came in today, few reports suggested that Sunil and Chandan Prabhakar’s characters have been replaced following the channel’s talks with Raju Srivastava and Ahsaan Qureshi, who gave their nod.

It was even said that the production house called up Sunil to convince him to return to the show post his decision to quit. Further reports also suggested that post the tiff with Kapil, Sunil is in no mood to return to the show even if his fee is doubled. Although he is obligated to be a part of the show till April, as agreed to in the contract. (Also read: What! Did Kapil Sharma cry after Sunil Grover denied to come back on the show?)

Amidst all the confusion, Sunil gave a statement to TOI in which he said, “I can’t talk about it right now. I will need few days time only then I can talk about it.” When asked to comment about the exit of Chandan Prabhakar and Ali Asgar, he added, “I don’t know who has quit and who is still part of the show. I have no idea about it.”

According to a first hand account of a passenger on board the Air India flight (as reported by HT), Kapil Sharma got furious when his team members started eating before him, as he was still finishing his drink (an entire bottle of Glenfiddich whiskey). He began abusing Sunil and other members; in the heat of the moment, he even hit Sunil with his shoe! He held Sunil by the collar and slapped him. When things seemed to go out of control, the cabin crew tried to intervene, but failed.

A series of abuses in Punjabi followed, all coming from an inebriated Kapil who kept on reinforcing the fact that the careers of all the others on the show is because of him and also threatened to ruin their careers. Let’s see how the drama unfolds further and where this leads the careers of all the artists involved.
