Kapil and I don’t need a me­di­a­tor: Su­nil Grover

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page - Monika Rawal Kukreja

Co­me­dian-ac­tor Su­nil Grover has stayed away from the lime­light for al­most five months now — he quit The Kapil Sharma Show (TKSS) af­ter a fight with Kapil on board an air­craft. As he turns a year older to­day, Su­nil says that misses his au­di­ences as much as they miss him.

Asked about his plans, Su­nil says, “I want to en­ter­tain peo­ple and re­main in this field. This is what I love do­ing, and have tried to do for all th­ese years. Right now, I’m just in the process of think­ing.”

Su­nil is still ret­i­cent about the brawl that sev­ered his very suc­cess­ful part­ner­ship with Kapil. “Of­ten, if you say some­thing, it shows the other per­son in a bad light, though un­in­ten­tion­ally. With Kapil, I’ve had a great as­so­ci­a­tion, and I have deep grat­i­tude for the shared plat­form,” he says.

Re­cently, Su­nil shot for a special episode as Mashoor Gu­lati (his pop­u­lar char­ac­ter on TKSS) to pro­mote Sal­man Khan’s film Tube­light. Did the episode make him nos­tal­gic? Was there a change of heart about TKSS? “Mere heart ko hua kya tha jo change hona tha? My choles­terol lev­els are fine and no block­age in my heart,” quips Su­nil.

In th­ese five months, many in­dus­try col­leagues have tried to bring about a patch-up between Kapil and Su­nil. The lat­ter says that there’s no need for a me­di­a­tor. “I know [Kapil] very well. Why do I need some­one else to sort things between us?” says Su­nil. “We still have each other’s num­bers and we haven’t changed them. But I’m thank­ful to those who are [still] tak­ing the ini­tia­tive. Any­way, the best part is that the com­edy didn’t stop and it’s con­tin­u­ing from both ends.”

About the news of Kapil not keep­ing well, ow­ing to the dip­ping TRPs of his show, Su­nil says, “I’ve heard about this, and I can only say that he should take good care of him­self.”
