Updates from : Time Now :
Actor-comedian Kapil Sharma denied the infamous and controversial fight with Sunil Grover, who was a major part of his popular television show The Kapil Sharma Show.
At the trailer launch of his second film Firangi, Kapil opened up about the incident in which during a flight from Australia to Mumbai, Kapil had reportedly physically assaulted Sunil.
Clarifying his stance, Kapil said that it’s difficult to manage a huge team and he is quite bad at that but he didn’t’ really fight with Sunil.
“When you move with such a huge team, you have to manage a lot of things and I am really bad at it, I will say that much. Touchwood, we have been working together for many years and I would like to repeat it one more time, I didn’t actually fight with Sunil Grover at all. It didn’t happen,” Kapil said.
Narrating what exactly happened during the flight, Kapil said that the fight happened with comedian Chandan Prabhakar as a girl had complained about him.
“When we reached Australia, since the first day, my mood was really bad. I was juggling so many things, I was shooting the show and for other things. During that time, my film’s artiste died. I was so nervous and turned so negative. I wanted to cancel the Australia show but couldn’t and before the show, a girl came to me complaining about a guy who happens to be my childhood friend, Chandan. I scolded him,” he explained.
He revealed that he shouted at Chandan without listening to his side but never got an opportunity to apologise to him as he went missing for five days.
“I had to perform for one and a half hours and that girl and boy artiste had 10-minute stints. My whole thing was, ‘You are bothering me with this when I have such a long performance ahead’. I am a little impulsive. Chandan went missing for five days. I wanted to meet him and apologize because I didn’t listen to his side of the story. I saw him one hour before the Australia flight and I lost it again and I used cuss words again,” he said.
Kapil also said that he loves Sunil and loved to work with him. He wanted to work with him since their Comedy Circus days and has learnt a lot from him
“I love him. I like to work with the best of people. When I was doing Comedy Circus, I used to tell people, ‘I met this guy Sunil Grover in Hans Baliye. ‘Let’s get him, I saw his show, I liked him’. When you work with the best, you learn a lot,” he added.
Kapil also took a dig at the media for the speculation regarding the ‘fight’.
Well, these revelations have certainly created a spark and seem very confusing. It might be a publicity stunt for his upcoming film Firangi. But who knows?
Kapil Sharma is prepping up for the Rajiev Dhingra directorial that also features Ishita Dutta and Monica Gill and will release on November 24.
