Mumbai: If any controversy can match up to the Kangana-Hrithik spat or even surpass it, it is the Kapil Sharma-Sunil Grover fallout. The comedians were on a flight back home from a show in Australia when an inebriated Kapil started yelling at Sunil Grover and the rest of the team for eating without him. He has allegedly thrown his sandal on Grover and boasted of making his career. Following the incident, the producers of the show have reportedly decided against renewing Kapil’s contract (for a whopping 103 Cr).

Sunil, on the other hand, has written heartfelt notes on Facebook urging Kapil not to behave like ‘God’ and has admitted to enjoying the ‘tamasha’ revolving around it.

In an earlier interview with a leading daily, Grover had called himself a better actor and claimed to be more popular than the star comedian. When asked if any kind of competition was going on between the two, Sunil reportedly said, “You know what the most important thing is? That people are watching the show. As long as the TRP is up and audiences are loving us, none of us wants anything else. It was never Kapil vs Gutthi. It would never be. There's no competition. We area part of a single team and we need to cooperate and coordinate. But I cannot deny that I'm more popular than Kapil. And that is an excellent feeling. But yes, people are used to seeing all of us together. The formula works.”

Sunil, however, admitted that Kapil is witter than him but he is a better actor.

Contrary to reports, Sunil Grover is still a part of the famous ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’.
