The huge audience of The Kapil Sharma Show is in a fix. The fans are wondering whether or not they will get to see Sunil Grover aka Dr Mashoor Gulati on the show after comedian-actor Kapil Sharma allegedly assaulted him aboard a flight. This, despite Kapil writing a Facebook post, trying to clear the air about the entire incident. Kapil said in the post that he shouted on Sunil but that was the first time in five years. “I meet my brother once in a year.. n spending almost everyday with my team.. specially sunil .. I love him.. I respect him.. 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. we will sit n talk that where is the problem.. I love him as a artist as a human being,” Kapil wrote. He called it their family matter which can easily be resolved. Interestingly, Kapil also wrote in the post about the person who revealed the fracas to the media, “…was celebrating my best time n suddenly I heard a news about me n sunil paji fighting.. first of all see where it is coming from.. what r the intentions behind this.. if I fought with him in the flight then who saw it n informed u.. is he trustworthy..?”
On the same day that Kapil revealed about his girlfriend Ginni Chatrath on social media, the news emerged that Kapil had allegedly assaulted Sunil Grover on Thursday night, during a flight from Australia to Mumbai. The show’s entire team was in Australia on a tour and the incident happened when the actors were on their way back. Kapil was allegedly drunk at the time.
According to reports, Kapil shouted at Sunil while the latter stayed quiet. Kapil reportedly went on to physically assault Sunil and the cabin crew had to intervene to bring him under control. Earlier, Kapil had told media, “Mujhe yaad nahi (I don’t remember). Actually hamari har flight mein ladai hoti hai (We fight on every flight)… Har jagah ladai hoti hai (We fight everywhere)… It is a healthy fight… We fight for work… We fight for good work.” Sunil, who plays the popular character of Dr Mashoor Gulati on the show, on the other, gave a ‘no comments’ response. While Sunil has not said anything, sources say he is very miffed and may leave The Kapil Sharma Show.
Here is Kapil Sharma’s complete post on the incident…

What happened between Kapil Sharma and Sunil Grover?
The fight on flight from Melbourne actually began with Kapil taking swipes at Chandan Prabhakar, according to reports. As he was using swear words, other passengers started complaining. Sunil intervened and told him, “Paaji tussi gaali mat do.” At this, Kapil started abusing Sunil. “Teri aukaat kya hai jo tu mujhko aisa bole?” he is said to have told Sunil. He made fun of the show Sunil had launched in 2014 after parting ways with him. Sunil moved to the economy class but Kapil followed him and hit him, say reports.
The history of Kapil Sharma, Sunil Grover
In 2014, television probably saw its biggest rift when Sunil Grover quit Comedy Nights With Kapil, which was then shown on Colors. He started his own show, Mad in India on Star Plus. Their fallout was said to be due to money. However, with the new show proving to be a flop, Sunil Grover returned to Kapil’s show. When Kapil took his show to Sony, Sunil accompanied him and is said to be the highest paid actor on the show after Kapil himself. There was buzz that Kapil had refused to promote Sunil’s film, Coffee With D, on The Kapil Sharma Show. Sunil had then pointed out that the news was not true.
