What a sad moment it was when a few years back Sunil Grover, who is popularly known all over India as 'Gutthi' left 'Comedy Nights with Kapil' due to some controversies. The same scenario is about to repeat yet again and the reason for Dr Mashoor Gulati (Sunil's character) quitting this most celebrated comedy talk show of the nation can be its producer cum performer, Kapil Sharma. Yes dear readers, 'The Kapil Sharma Show' might lose its most treasured artist and this time for good.
A few days back, it was reported that Kapil Sharma was behaving in a violent manner with Sunil in flight from Australia to India. Although Kapil clarified this matter as he updated his status on his Facebook account saying, "yes I had a argue with him. but r we not normal people..? I shouted at him first time in 5 years .. itna to chalta hai bhai ( I think this much is allowed in a friendship)."
A day prior to Kapil's statement on the case a report by DNA mentioned that the sources from the show told "Sunil is not coming back on the show. He had already recorded the episodes for this weekend (March 18-19). But he is not returning to the show."
Both started as comedians at platforms such as the Comedy Circus. This became the foundation of their friendship, they came from nothing and now stand at the top of their career.
Note: Kapil's note is added in the end of the story.
Together they make the best pair to make a person die laughing. Their on-stage chemistry never reflected such differences between these two fine comic artists. But now that we know about the stress in their real life relation, it can be concluded that there is something bad going on behind the stage. What can it be?
Sunil Grover might not be the main face of 'The Kapil Sharma Show' but he's surely an older face than Kapil's. He has been featured in many shows like 'Kaun Banega Champu' and 'Kya Aap Paanchvi Fail Se Tez Hain?'. Can this be the reason for Kapil abrupt behaviour for him?
Sunil, after his character got hit on the show, many campaigns and movies came after him for his popular face. Can this be the reason for Sunil getting treated resentfully by the show's chief performer cum-producer?
It was allegedly reported that Kapil got extremely drunk on the flight when both he and Sunil were flying back to India from Australia. He (Kapil) began using abusive language towards Sunil and was misbehaving but Sunil remained calm. Sources also told that Kapil went on to physically trouble Sunil.
According to DNA, the sources from the show have said that Kapil took every opportunity to remind Sunil that he's the reason behind Sunil's success as a comedian and without him, Sunil would have been nothing but a struggler. After this incident on the aircraft, Sunil has decided to quit the show. Although Sunil has already recorded the episodes for this weekend (March 18-19).
The sources from the show also said that in recent months, the behaviour of Kapil Sharma has gone from bad to worse, his excessive drinking habits have made him a man with an ill temper. "Kapil is not a bad soul. But once he downs a few pegs he forgets who he is and starts reminding everyone around him how insignificant they are as compared to him," says a source from the show.
