The much publicised fallout between Kapil Sharma and Sunil Grover, who were once the best comedy duo on TV, has been reported on a lot in the last year. Makers of ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’ were hanging in the balance somewhat, waiting to see if Grover was somehow open to making a return. However, it seems that the show will now be seen moving ahead without Grover when it returns to the TV screens in 2018.
A source told Bollywood Hungama, “The mid-flight fight was leaked out by people close to Sunil Grover. Kapil never spoke about it. Also, what was given out was a highly exaggerated and lopsided version of what happened. Still, Kapil made it very clear that Grover was welcome back on the show whenever he wanted”.
Grover has now categorically expressed that he will not be returning to the show. The source added, “Grover repeatedly turned down overtures from Kapil Sharma’s team for reconciliation. Mind you, Kapil never directly approached Grover for a patch-up. It was only Kapil’s team. But Grover didn’t respond. He was on his own trip. He wanted to leverage the incident to establish a solo career. When he got Salman Khan’s support Grover was convinced he was on the right track. Salman, for reasons best known to him, boycotted Kapil’s show to promote Tubelight, and preferred to do an hour-long special with Sunil Grover. Nothing more has been heard off Grover’s career since then”.
Grover is now on his way to a solo career and ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’ is now being formulated without him.
