Kapil Sharma: Media made me sound like an arrogant monster

It seems like nothing is going right for The Kapil Sharma Show. After dismal ratings and Kapil’s ill health, now there are reports of a cold war brewing between comedians.

Kapil Sharma and Sunil Grover parted ways after their altercation and things went bad for Kapil and his show thereafter. Several of his teammates – Chandan Prabhakar, Ali Asgar – followed Sunil’s suit and quit the show. Chandan returned while Ali, who quit Kapil’s show citing creative differences, joined his rival Krushna Abhishek’s series. Kiku Sharda plays multiple roles in absence of other comedians.

Apart from the reshuffling of his actors, Kapil Sharma featured in headlines after he couldn’t shoot for promotional episodes with several Bollywood celebrities such as Shah Rukh Khan, Ajay Devgn and Anil Kapoor.

“Do you think I am so stupid as to turn away big stars like Shah Rukh Khan and Ajay Devgn? They all knew what my problem was. They all saw how I was suffering. They were all very caring. None of them minded.

Only a section of the media made me sound like this arrogant monster that was using his health as an excuse to turn away stars just to satisfy my ego,” Kapil told Bollywood Hungama.

The Sunil Grover vs Kapil Sharma Episode

Going into the details of his mid-air fight with Sunil Grover, Kapil said: “I admit there was a problem. And I’ve paid a heavy price for it. But what was reported was grossly exaggerated and almost entirely fabricated. It was said that I asked that food be served to me first on the flight and that I got angry and I threw a shoe at Sunil. All these stories of shoe-throwing and tantrums were started in a section of the digital media.”

Archana to fill in for Sidhu

There are reports that he has replaced Navjot Singh Sidhu with Archana Puran Singh as the judge on the show. It so happened that Sidhu took leave of some days from the shooting of the show due to his health. He also informed Kapil about his unavailability.

In a situation such as this, getting Sidhu upset will be the last thing on Kapil Sharma’s agenda.
