Looks like the fight between Kapil Sharma, host and producer of The Kapil Sharma Show, and the crew members, has turned uglier than what it was already. Reports suggest that shooting for the show’s upcoming episodes were cancelled on Wednesday as none of the key crew members turned up on the sets. Not only this, the production team of the show also failed to bring on any new guests.
Navjot Singh Sidhu on Thursday said he is like an elder brother to both Kapil and Sunil and is trying to end their fight. Navjot, now a cabinet minister in Punjab, has said he will continue with the show despite his political commitments. “Kapil and Sunil are brothers. Being a senior member of the show, it is my duty to bring them together again,” said Navjot Singh Sidhu to Hindustan Times.

Kapil, who had posted clarifications and half-hearted apologies on Twitter earlier, has now said that he will not be speaking on the issue anymore at this point of time. Show’s producer Preeti Simoes, who is at present away from Mumbai, has also said that she hopes the differences can be resolved amicably.

The only comedians who are still working with Kapil are Kiku Sharda and Sumona Chakraverti. Despite Kapil attacking Kiku too during his mid-air outburst, he has decided to stick with the show host. Kapil, who has his hands full with his upcoming film Firangi, wanted to have a bank of episodes in place but in the current situation, it seems to be a distant dream. Can Kapil keep his team intact or will we see new comedians in place of Sunil, Chandan and Ali soon on The Kapil Sharma Show?
Though the fight between Sharma and Grover took place last weekend, the shooting for the show took place on Monday and Tuesday with Naam Shabana team and stand-up comedians Raju Srivastava and Sunil Pal. However, things took a totally different turn when the managers didn’t find any new guests to shoot with on Wednesday.
Indian Express quoted a source as saying, “Raju just shot for an episode. He hasn’t signed the show. The situation right now is such that we are stuck. People are trying to convince him (Sunil). Kapil has been talking to him. People are discussing with each other what can be done about this.”
Though Kapil managed to take The Kapil Sharma Show forward for two days, but things have turned worst after the managers couldn’t find any new guest for the show. [Sunil Grover to quit the show? Here’s what he said to Kapil Sharma, and it’s a must read]
According to a report by Indian Express –
‘Raju just shot for an episode. He hasn’t signed the show. The situation right now is such that we are stuck. People are trying to convince him (Sunil). Kapil has been talking to him. People are discussing with each other what can be done about this.’
There is no official word on when the next shoot is scheduled. Even though, Kapil tried to do the damage control after the he abused and allegedly hit Sunil Grover while they were on flight from Melbourne. Reports also say that while Ali Asgar is the only one who has kept absolutely shut about this, might have joined a new show named ‘Trideviyaan’ where he will be playing a criminal disguised as a woman.
