Mumbai: The Kapil Sharma Show may be named after the comedian, but the characters of Rinku Bhabhi and Dr Mashoor Gulati, played by Sunil Grover, remain the backbone of the show. Kapil Sharma realises this, and thus, after the infamous mid-air scuffle, Kapil has finally apologised to Sunil in writing
The 35-year-old Kapil took to Twitter to say sorry-“Paji @WhoSunilGrover sry if I hurt u unintentionally.u knw vry well how much I luv u. M also upset .love n regards always:).”
In a Facebook post on Monday, Kapil had accepted that he had shouted at Sunil, but had blamed media for overplaying the issue. That, it seems, didn't go down well with Sunil, so on Tuesday he came up with a public apology.
Kapil in the post had written, “Hi.. good morning friends .. 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..? Some people enjoy these kind of stuff.. we eat together .. we travel together.. 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.. he is like my elder brother.. why so much negativity all the time.. I respect our media.. there r some other serious issues which we need to focus. Is me n sunil's issue is so important n related with the security of my country ..? We spend a lot of time together rather then our families .. n sometime it happens in family.. its our family matter.. we will sort this out.. zyada maze mat liya karoo. OK now m tired typing .. n one more thing.. I m going for the final schedule of Firangi. Hahahahaha.. sorry again promotion.. thank u so much for ur love n blessings... keep smiling n stay happy always :)) love u all (sic)," added 'The Kapil Sharma Show' host.
Kapil and Sunil reportedly had a fight as they were flying down with their team to Mumbai from Australia after a show.
Apparently, Kapil got drunk and belittled Sunil and also physically assaulted him.
There are rumours that Sunil, a key actor, has decided to quit the show following the spat.
