The Kapil Sharma – Sunil Grover altercation drama refuses to die down. So for those of you unaware, (Seriously? Where have you been living?) it started sometime mid-march when Kapil Sharma got into a drunken brawl, with his team, on a flight back from Australia, with Sunil Grover at the forefront, where the former allegedly abused and assaulted the latter. We’ve also heard stories of a shoe being hurled, but this remains unconfirmed. Having had enough of Kapil’s misbehavior and disrespect towards his crew, Sunil Grover decided to walk out of the Kapil Sharma show. A couple of apologies later from Kapil’s side, Grover refused to budge and kept the audience hooked onto the guessing game of whether he will return to the show or not.
With rumours doing the rounds on almost a daily basis, some suggesting how the channel has now stepped in to sort things out and how Grover is actually bound by contract there by making it difficult for him to quit the show altogether therefore hinting that he will eventually make a comeback.
Amidst all this, Grover tweeted on Wednesday and we quote, “My intentions are to act and to entertain with dignity. For me, money can’t be the only reason to do something, or not to do something”. While this is quite an ambiguous statement but this surely shows how issues are still far from being resolved between the two comedians. Grover has made sure to put it out there that his dignity is of utmost importance to him and understandably so.
And now with a lot of other comedians, giving their two cents on the spat, Grover remains unaffected. Infact he performed at his own live show – Comedy Clinic featuring his character Dr. Mashoor Gulati in Delhi recently which was a huge hit with packed audience therefore proving he is capable of pulling in the crowds on his own merit. His solo act during the Indian Idol finale too, was greatly appreciated.
So, while the guessing game is still on, here’s hoping the audience doesn’t have to wait too long to watch him on their television screens. When and where will it happen, you may ask? Well, your guess is as good as mine.
