Will he, will he not… this has been the biggest question doing the rounds of Indian television fraternity for the past one month. The kind of support Sunil Grover received in the past few weeks has been much more than what he earned on The Kapil Sharma Show. From his fans to co-stars, everyone stood by him after his mid-air tiff with Kapil Sharma. And while any official update on Sunil signing his next project is still awaited, reports claim that the actor-comedian has already locked a deal with Sony channel for a new show.


HT quoted a source, “People have approached Sunil from the channel and Kapil’s team, but the meetings resulted in no conclusion. It’s speculated that Sunil might be offered his own show on the channel, but that was never his intention when he quit Kapil’s show. As for the ‘no interaction with Kapil’ clause, how will that be possible when the show is called The Kapil Sharma Show? Moreover, no such offer has been made by anyone. He is overwhelmed with the love and support he has received. He isn’t planning to do anything right now [about the issue].”

According to another report in India Today, if things work out between Sunil and Sony, the show will have new artistes, and its slot will not clash with The Kapil Sharma Show. The report added that Sunil had a closed door meeting with Sony and apparently the deal for the new show has been locked.

The report adds that Kapil’s rumoured ex-girlfriend Preeti Simoes, who was last heard to have quit The Kapil Sharma Show as its creative director, will spearhead Sunil’s new show. Preeti, while speaking to, had however denied of teaming up with Sunil. Further confirmation is still awaited on the same.

If the new show rolls out as per plan, it might also star Ali Asgar, Chandan Prabhakar and Sugandha Mishra, all of whom had stopped shooting for Kapil’s show in solidarity with Sunil.

    The Kapil Sharma Show is very good and Sunil Grover is a very important part of his Show. But the reality is that Kapil is a very good Stand up comedian and performer on any condition... other hand Sunil is a good actor but He is not a good comedian..he lives a character very great which make us laugh. One important thing.Kapil no needs any sunil grover to make people laugh ..he can do it alone....but Sunil needs support for comic situation which a standup comedian naturally have..but sunil dont have...this was the main reason y Sunil Show was a big flop on star plus....same thing is going to happen again....

        The Kapil Sarma Show is the best ever Comedy Show in India and Kapil is the main artisan of it. TKSS should continue no matter whether Sunil Grover rejoins or not. We enjo last 3 episodes without Sunil.

          Sunil Grover is a good entertainer when performed with Kapil. But imagine Sunil without Kapil........ a big zero. Kapil's hosting, entertainment, crowd-pulling capacity are much much ahead of Sunil. Kapil is the BEST in all fields. TKSS MUST GO ON.

            I liked Sunil Grover in Kapil`s show but not in other shows. Kapil is the best. I advise Kapil not to allow people like Sunil or similar persons in his show. They use him, plan on the back, form groups, make money, get shows, and backstab Kapil. You are the best Kapil Sharma. Good Luck.
