Sunil Grover: Kapil Sharma and I have had a good association and we did a great show together
In the beginning of 2017, we saw one of the saddest fallouts in television between Kapil Sharma and Sunil Grover. The two allegedly got into a brawl on a flight while coming back to the city from Australia. Post their tiff, Sunil went on to leave The Kapil Sharma Show and was rarely seen on Television.
At an event, Sunil Grover was asked about the tiff, he said, "Kapil and I have had a good association and we did a great show together. We have made people laugh. The Kapil Sharma Show was one of the shows that was popular and I am fortunate that I was a part of it. I am thankful to the platform and I have good memories related to the show and I will always cherish them."
Earlier, in an interview with a leading daily, Sunil said, "It's a continuous journey, because when you are a part of a process — a show — you are in that thing day in and day out. So, sometimes, you need some breathing space to understand [things] and have some objectivity in your life."
He further said, "I kept explaining to others — relatives, friends, family and fans — things that even I don't understand. In the bargain, I understood that [television] has given me immense love and respect."
Sunil went on to say how his fans have been special and gave him the love throughout. Grover added, "I remember, after I left Kapil’s show, I did a couple of live events and got to travel, too, and I realised how much love was around me. It’s such a great vibe and I understand that I need to continue working on a small screen for my fans."
He also spoke about how all shows cannot be successful but a few manage to leave an impact on people. Sunil said, "As artistes, our duty is to keep working on what we believe in. So, whatever we think, according to our experience, is right for the audience and can entertain them, we will make it. Also, we keep trying newer things, because you never know what might connect with the audience."
He concluded by saying, "The audience is very smart. Sometimes we laugh and say that they won’t understand a particular thing, but they prove us wrong. At the end of the day, we are making it for the audience and for the people who live in this country."
