Kapil Sharma vanished from the limelight a few months ago, after his attempt to run another show failed. But it seems Kapil is all set to return on television, and will be part of a show which will also star Krushna Abhishek (his professional rival at one time) and Bharti Singh.
Recent pictures shared by Kapil on social media shows that he is not in great shape, but sources say Kapil plans to get back in shape as well. The actor has hired a personal trainer to get fit before he makes a comeback.
Kapil Sharma is Clueless About Career
It seems Kapil Sharma is clueless about his career right now, doesn’t know what to do without this fellow actors, who’re no longer with him.
And more than that he seems to be more interested in what Sunil Grover is up to these days.
In the past, Kapil Sharma was accused of making big stars wait on his sets for hours, who had come to promote their films on Comedy Nights with Kapil.
Not that Kapil is back on Television with another show ‘Family Time With Kapil Sharma’, he’s doing that again — making them wait. First he made Baaghi 2 stars Tiger Shroff and Disha Patani wait on the sets for hours. And now he made Rani Mukerji wait for 3 hours only to cancel the episode at the last minute. In the past, Kapil has made several big stars wait for hours on sets.
Kapil’s comeback show failed to impress the audience with its premiere episode. Stars like Rani and Tiger would have given some boost to the show, but it seems Kapil was not bothered about the show. On the contrary, he seems to be more interested in what Sunil Grover is up to, and is wasting his energy on hitting back at his friend-turned-foe Sunil Grover (on Twitter).
Insiders say Kapil is clueless about what to do on the show without his former fellow comedians.
Now that Sunil Grover has made up his mind not to work with Kapil, its best for Kapil to move forward and focus on his career.
On TKSS’ 100th episode, Sony asks Kapil Sharma to thanks Sunil Grover but Kapil defies channel
When Kapil Sharma Show (TKSS) completed its 100th episode, Sony channel requested Kapil to mention the names of Sunil Grover, Ali Asgar and Chandan Prabhakar (the guys who left the show) during his thanksgiving speech on the 100th episode.
But guess what? Kapil Sharma went against the channel’s wish and didn’t take the names of any of those artists.
“Aaj humare show ka sauva (100) episode hai, humare sab darshako ka shukriya, sabhi celebrities, poori team-on stage and back stage, jo log humare saath hai aur jo nahi bhi hai, unn sab ka shukriya…,” said Kapil Sharma.
Sunil Grover, on hearing about the incident, chose to play it down. “Frankly I didn’t see the 100th episode, but what difference does it make if he didn’t take my name? I was an integral part of the show, wasn’t I? Why thank me? Mera bhi toh show tha woh,” said Sunil.
Meanwhile, the makers of the show scouted for new names to be associated with the show (after Kapil and Sunil’s public fight), and felt Raju Shrivastav was the best fit. However, even Raju could not increase the TRP of the show.
As expected, the show did not go on for much longer (dismal TRP of show).
Sony, on the other hand, maintained good relations with Sunil Grover. Sunil appeared on various shows (courtesy Sony).
When Navjot Singh Sidhu won the elections and became a state minister, he was very clear that he will continue being the judge on The Kapil Sharma Show. Despite facing several criticism, Navjot Singh Sidhu was firm about his decision. He even said that “What I do in my free time is my business”. “Sidhu Paaji kept insisting if Kirron Kherji can be an active parliamentarian and a TV host why can’t he be the same? “
However, Sidhu did not anticipate (even in his wildest dreams) that his ouster from the show would be triggered because of the spat between Kapil Sharma and Suni Grover.

Salman Khan did a special show with Sunil Grover
Salman Khan chose Sunil Grover over Kapil Sharma to promote his film Tubelight, and it speaks volumes about Sunil’s popularity.
“Salman is very close to Ali Asgar and when he got to know that they (Ali Asgar, Sunil Grover and team) are not doing anything for the past three months after their now infamous fight, he opted to do a special episode with the actors who quit Kapil’s show, in order to promote ‘Tubelight’.”
Kapil Sharma lost close to Rs. 107 crore
Sony’s contract with Kapil was up for renewal, but the show did not go on for much longer. As per sources, Kapil lost close to a whopping Rs. 107 crore in remuneration.
Kapil Sharma is one of the highest advanced tax payers in India from the Media & Entertainment industry.
How did the Kapil Sharma & Sunil Grover Fight Start?
So what exactly happened between the two?
The cast of the show was returning from Australia after a performance tour, when an altercation between Sharma (who was apparently drunk) and his crew broke out. Sharma even got physical with Grover in the flight. Kapil not only hurled abuses at Sunil (said things like “Tu Mera Naukar hai, tere show flop tha”), he even held Sunil by his collar and slapped him (Sunil stayed mum all the while).
The two have fought in the past, but this time Sunil Grover wanted to put an end to it. Sunil Grover quit the show after his public spat with Kapil Sharma.
“Ab bahot ho gaya. Agar Kapil ka yehi rawaiya raha toh aur log bhi nikal jayenge (enough is enough, if Kapil continues in this (high-handed) manner others will also quit),” revealed an insider.
Later Kapil did try to clarify by posting on FB.
Later, Kapil Sharma also apologised to Sunil Grover (on Twitter) a few days after the incident. However, Sunil felt it was not from the heart and Kapil was doing it save his show.

Sunil Grover did respond to Kapil’s apology.
“Bha hi! Yes, You hurt me deeply. We with you has been a learning experience. Just one advice start respecting human beings also apart from animals. All are not as successful as you are. All are not as talented as you are. But if they all are talented like you, who will value you. So, have some gratitude towards their existence. And also, If someone is correcting you, don’t abuse that person. Refrain from using foul language in front of women who had nothing to do with the stardom you carry, they are by chance just traveling with you. Thanks for making me realise it was your show and you have power to throw out anybody, anytime. You are the wittiest, and the best in your field. But don’t act like a ‘God’. Take good care of yourself. Wish you lot more success and fame.”

Celebrities want Kapil Sharma and Sunil Grover to patch up
Several celebrities appealed to Sunil to get back on the Comedy Nights with Kapil show. Sony even offered Sunil a “no interaction with Kapil” clause along with a fee hike but Sunil refused to budge.
Despite Sunil Grover making his intentions clear, that he doesn’t want to return on the Kapil Sharma Show, lot of people in the industry wanted them to patch and let bygones be bygones.
Bharti Singh and Buaji aka Upasna Singh are the two celebrities, who recently wished to see the two actors together again.
Kapil and Sunil have been thick friends. They know each other since a long time and shared a great rapport. It was very unfortunate that such a thing happened between them, but I feel everything will be fine. I want them to patch up. We are like a family and every family goes through ups and downs and have their share of fights. However, in the end, everyone comes together. I feel they will become friends again,” said Upasna.
Comedian Raju Shrivastav, worried that Kapil and Sunil’s public spat sends a wrong impression to the public about stand-up comedians, is willing to play a peacemaker between the two.
