The comedian has denied reports that he is returning on the show or that he is in talks with other shows.
Mumbai: It was reported that Sunil Grover has quit 'The Kapil Sharma Show' after he was reportedly hit by a shoe and verbally abused by Kapil Sharma on a flight.
However, some reports have also claimed that Grover will be returning to Kapil’s show. Grover, however, confirms that he is not contemplating making a comeback on his former friend’s show.
Talking to a leading daily, Grover confirmed that these reports are mere rumours and that his primary focus at the moment is live shows. “It's all a lie… At present, I am focusing on live shows and nothing else. I am also not talking to any other channel,” he said.
Sunil, who recently performed at a charity event in Assam, finds live gigs ‘exhilarating’ and is still under a contract with Sony Entertainment with no other shows on any other channel. The comedian, who was accompanied by fellow comics Chandan Prabhakar, Kiku Sharda and Ali Asgar on the day of the mid-air assault, is still upset about the abuse episode.
Sunil Grover, whose character Dr. Mashoor Gulati on Kapil’s show had earned him high praise, is overwhelmed by the love his fans have been showering upon him. "I am overwhelmed by the love I am getting from the audience. Performing live is exhilarating," he says.
Meanwhile, Kapil’s show without Ali Asgar and Sunil Grover has seen a drastic fall in TRPs.
