Salman Khan has chosen his side in the infamous Kapil Sharma-Sunil Grover mid-air spat. The actor will not be promoting his upcoming release Tubelight on The Kapil Sharma Show. Instead, he will be shooting a two-hour special episode with Sunil Grover and Ali Asgar. Sunil will play his famous character of Dr Mashoor Gulati.

salman khan, salman khan sunil grover, salman khan ali asgar, salman khan supernight with tubelight, Salman Khan shot for a promo of Super Night With Tubelight with Ali Asgar, Sugandha Mishra and Sanket Bhosale.

Missing Sunil Grover on Indian television? Wondering why he is only doing live shows? Then this news might make you happy. Sunil Grover is set to return, and that too with Salman Khan, and in his famous Dr Mashoor Gulati character. Rejoice! While Kapil Sharma is missing his laughter companions, Sunil Grover, Ali Asgar, Sugandha Mishra and Chandan Prabhakar on The Kapil Sharma Show, the comedian-actors have found a new platform to showcase their talent. And, the one to accompany them is none other than the Bhaijaan of Bollywood, Salman Khan. What better support can these ex-members of Kapil’s show ask for?

A few days back it was being speculated that Salman has chosen Sunil and Ali over Kapil to promote his Eid release, Tubelight. Some pictures from the promo shoot of the special episode also surfaced on the internet. Still, sources close to the development refused to comment. But now it has been confirmed that Salman will not be taking Tubelight on the sets of The Kapil Sharma Show. Instead, the superstar will shoot for a two-hour special episode which will be aired on Sony Entertainment channel.

Watch the promo of Super Night With Tubelight here: 

Also, with the promo, the title of the episode has also been unveiled. It will be called, ‘Supernight With Tubelight’. Doesn’t the name sound familiar? Yes, Kapil’s show on channel Colors was called, ‘Comedy Night With Kapil’. In the promo, though we do not see Sunil Grover, but it is being said that Sunil will be a part of the episode and could not join the promo shoot because of his prior commitments.

So, is this Salman’s way of taking a dig at Kapil Sharma who apparently misbehaved with his good friend Ali Asgar? Well, we can’t say that. But one thing is for sure, Salman missing Kapil’s show will have a drastic effect on its already dropping TRPs. Earlier, when Dabangg Khan brought his films, Sultan and Bajrangi Bhaijaan to Kapil’s show, its ratings soared. Salman too was seen rolling on the floor and left with praises for Kapil and his team. But considering Salman’s love and care for his friends and colleagues, one thing is for sure, the actor has chosen his side in the infamous Kapil-Sunil mid-air spat of which Kapil is facing consequences ever since.

      Its really hard for the Indian express reporters to accept kapil's success. Whatever you guys tried your best to pull down kapil sharma. Always barking like street dogs against kapil sharma. But what you got ? Today's report-- Kapil sharma now back in top 5 again. Haha. Don't panic indian express , you tried your best. But this time you are failure against kapil's hard work and his enormous talent.

              Yes, I agree. All these people who have gone with this ungrateful Grover (including this guy) became wealthy because of Kapil. There is no deniel. Yes, you still can have your independent shows and show you skills - but not go against Kapil This Su ha Mishra ones said, Kapil is like his brother and Ali - when he got the award - he was in 'ah' moment talking all about Kapil. I wish Salman come and grace Kapil's show as well.

                    Baat aise hai ki jab tumhe ghamand ho jata hai naa.... to kissi or pe wo dikhana nhi chahiye. Sunil grover have self respect and he left the show for that reason. Traitor bolna galat hai. Sunil grover is in industry from so long. Kapil sharma ne ussey nhi banaya uska talent tha us talent ne bnaya hai.

                      Koi kisi ki pehchan nahi banata, sab apne dam pe pehchan banate hain. Agar TV Channel Kapil kisi ke pehchan bananne ki aukat rakte to fir jo bhi unse juda hota unki pehchan hoti, par aise nahi hai.

                        It is. Not Salman it is Sony tv which is slowly slowly. Phasing out Kapil it's a calculated intelligent move from Sony ..

                            Agreed Kapil did not behave in a civilised way.He has apologised.Mr Grover and company should have forgiven him and continued along.It would have shown their humility rather than going all over the town trumping over Kapil.By the way other than Grover - what credentials do his colleagues had before appearing in Kapil show.Nothing.Carry on - Kapil,I am with you.Do not mind celebrities who do not come on your show.Tell them to look into their conscience first .Take this as a challenge and if Sony ends your contract - Go Live.We are with You.Spread cheer.We need people like you an
