Months after the tiff, famous comedians KapilSharma & Sunil Grover sorted things out and turned cordial with each other. While Kapil is set to make a comeback with a fresh version of The Kapil Sharma Show and Sunil, too, has returned to the small screen with his show Kanpur Wale Khuranas, the rumour mills were abuzz that the duo will reunite on the small screen.
Sunil declined Salman Khan’s offer & stated that he couldn’t be a part of the show
In a recent interview with news agency PTI, Sunil has revealed Salman Khan approached him to be a part of his former collaborator Kapil Sharma’s comeback show but he declined due to scheduling issues. There have been rumours that Salman, who has produced Kapil’s new comedy TV gig, has been trying to mediate a patch-up between the ex co-stars. The 41-year-old actor, who is part of Salman’s Bharat, confirms the superstar brought it up in a discussion.
“Salman sir is producing that show. My own dates would have clashed (with Kapil’s show) as I am doing a film with Salman sir. This show that I am doing for Star Plus fitted in the window that I had.
“But he (Salman) did speak to me briefly about it (bringing two of us together). We had a very casual chat about it but nothing much,” Sunil told PTI. When asked if he is ready to work with Kapil again, he says, “Time will tell, God will tell. Right now I am concentrating on my show and hope I am able to bring a smile on everyone’s faces.” Sunil is back with his own comedy show called Kanpur Wale Khuranas with frequent collaborators Ali Asgar and Upasana Singh, who have also been part of hit shows like The Kapil Sharma Show and Comedy Nights with Kapil.
Sunil Grover’s own comedy show in 2014 failed to garner TRPs
In 2014, Sunil’s own comedy show Mad in India aired on the channel, after he left Comedy Nights with Kapil amid issues with Kapil. The show failed to garner TRPs.
As he again goes solo, when asked about the pressure considering the debacle of his previous show, the actor says, “There will be some hit shows, there will be shows that will not be accepted. But that does not stop me from working”.
“There are hundreds of shows that are made every year and only three-four turn out to be hits. The attempt always is to connect with the audience. I took this up as the show has a nice vibe. But there was some nervousness about how it will work and all.” The eight-episode show will start airing from December 15.
While Sunil Grover’s Kanpur Wale Khuranas is gearing up for December, Kapil Sharma’s new show is expected to debut by the end of this month. Mr Sharma will be returning to the TV screen nine months after his last show Family Time With Kapil Sharma made a brief stint on Sony TV.
Meanwhile, Kapil is set to tie the knot with his long-time girlfriend Ginni Chatrath on December 12 and while the pre-wedding festivities have already kicked off, it will be interesting to see how the bride and groom decide to spend their special day together. The fans can’t help but wait for the inside photos and videos from the ceremonies to make their way to the internet. Kapil, in fact, has made it easier for his fans sharing that updates will be shared from the wedding on his YouTube page.
