The Kapil Sharma and Sunil Grover spat is as famous as The Kapil Sharma Show. The two actor-comedians had a fallout in a flight earlier this year, when they were flying back to Mumbai after wrapping up a show in Australia. Today at the trailer launch of Kapil’s upcoming film, Firangi, he opened up about the fight and rapport he shares with Sunil Grover.
Talking about Sunil, Kapil said, “There were some things that happened, but there were more things that were reported. I love Sunil Grover. He is one of the best actor I have worked with.”
Kapil Sharma confessed that he was facing a lot of pressure of the show that was happening in Australia, and a death of a fellow artist from Firangi added to his stress. Kapil said, “I never fought with Sunil, I love working with the best people in the industry. When I had started working on Comedy Circus I had asked the makers to get Sunil on board whom I had met on Hass Baliye. When you work with the best people, you learn a lot.”
He then continued about the whole episode. “Now let me tell you in detail about what happened. When we were going to Australia, just a couple of days before that an artiste passed away from our film. I had a scene with him the next morning, and I missed him terribly. I became very nervous and negative then. Our shoot was also delaying a lot in Punjab because of heavy winters and fog. All these things and a fight between two of our members at the show in Australia ignited more anger in me. I wanted to cancel the show because I just couldn’t take so much pressure. Chandan had checked out of the hotel and I couldn’t find him until an hour before our flight back to India,” he said.
“Sunil was quite worried seeing me in that state. Sunil and I know each other from the last nine years, and have worked together from the last five years. I don’t have any complaints for Sunil, but if I were Sunil, I would have tried to understand what is going wrong with a friend as he had not seen me like this in the last five years. But I have no complaints, he is a great performer, and a greater friend,” Kapil added.
