‘No-in­ter­ac­tion’ clause for Su­nil to re­turn on Kapil’s show? No truth in it

PEO­PLE HAVE AP­PROACHED SU­NIL GROVER FROM BOTH THE TV CHAN­NEL AND KAPIL SHARMA’S TEAM, BUT TO NO AVAIL, SAYS A SOURCE

The Kapil Sharma-Su­nil Grover saga con­tin­ues. Af­ter their mid-air spat, Su­nil (in­set) quit the comedian’s TV show, The Kapil Sharma Show, but ru­mours about his re­turn keep crop­ping up. The lat­est ru­mour is: the TV chan­nel has spo­ken with Su­nil about re­turn­ing to the show, which has lost view­er­ship, on the con­di­tion that he wouldn’t have to in­ter­act with Kapil (left). We’ve learnt that Su­nil has no in­ten­tion to re­turn.

A source says, “Peo­ple have ap­proached Su­nil from the chan­nel and Kapil’s team, but [there’s] no con­clu­sion. It’s spec­u­lated that Su­nil might be of­fered his own show on the chan­nel, but that was never his in­ten­tion when he quit Kapil’s show. As for the ‘no in­ter­ac­tion with Kapil’ clause, how’s that pos­si­ble when the show is called The Kapil Sharma Show? No such of­fer has been made by any­one. [Su­nil] is over­whelmed by the support he has re­ceived. He isn’t plan­ning to do any­thing right now [about the is­sue].”

Su­nil quit af­ter a drunk Kapil al­legedly as­saulted him on a flight. Su­nil’s con­tract with the chan­nel is due for re­newal, and the chan­nel has re­port­edly given Kapil a month to re­gain rat­ings.

Mean­while, Su­nil will join ac­tor Sunny Leone for live IPL com­men­tary from April 13.

He was un­avail­able for com­ment, but said through an April 5 tweet: “My in­ten­tions are to act and to en­ter­tain with dig­nity .... Money can’t be the only rea­son to do some­thing, or not to do some­thing.”
