Ac­tor-co­me­dian Su­nil Grover has re­futed re­ports of sign­ing a new show on the same chan­nel as that of The Kapil Sharma Show, which cel­e­brated its 100th episode last night. Although Su­nil con­firms that sev­eral of­fers are com­ing to him, he as­serts that noth­ing has been fi­nalised.

Once col­leagues, Kapil and Su­nil had a fight, and then the lat­ter quit the show. There’s much cu­rios­ity about his next move; a lot of it has to do with the pos­si­bil­ity of a ri­val show.

But, Su­nil tells us, “I haven’t signed any show on the same chan­nel or any­where else, for that mat­ter. I was part of The Kapil Sharma Show and I’ve been out of [it] for some time. I’m a per­former and my job is to per­form and act. There are of­fers, but noth­ing has been de­cided yet.”

Aworka­holic by na­ture, Su­nil (above, with Kapil) says that he wouldn’t de­lay his de­ci­sion on start­ing a new show for much longer. “I can’t sit idle for a long time,” he says. “My fam­ily also asks me why I’m not [do­ing some­thing]. Mu­jhe kaam to karna hai, but kya karna hai de­cided nahi hai (I have to do some work, but haven’t de­cided what it’ll be).”

In Kapil’s 100th episode, he in­di­rectly thanked Su­nil.

Su­nil rose to fame after play­ing mul­ti­ple char­ac­ters on the show. He says that he still re­spects the plat­form. “Maine jitne 92 episodes kiye, unme bo­hot maza aaya (I had a great time in the 92 episodes that I did),” he adds. “I have a lot of grat­i­tude for this plat­form be­cause it gave me a lot of love.”
