Kapil Sharma’s co-stars called his act unbecoming of a public figure.
Comedians are generally perceived as always-cool-personalities by their fans but recent news about the Indian stand-up comedian Kapil Sharma suggests that fans know little about the real Sharma behind the scene.
The stand-up comedian had an unruly tiff with his co-star Sunil Grover on a flight from Melbourne that Sharma later accepted as a “family matter”. But a tweet that appeared on Grover’s twitter handle suggests that not everything is brotherly between the two. Apparently, Grover might even quit from the hugely successful The Kapil Sharma Show.
In an emotional tweet phrased with words that convey heavy disappointment, Grover said his colleague should “start respecting human beings.”
Even though Sharma apologized for his bad behavior, Grover seems unmoved. The Times of India has reported that Grover has tendered his resignation to quit The Kapil Sharma Show. Grover played two roles – Dr. Mashoor Gulati and Rinku Bhabhi – in the comedy show.

Going by the TOI report, The Kapil Sharma Show might see more co-stars following Grover, including comedian Chandan Prabhakar. It has been reported that the co-stars of The Kapil Sharma Show have decided to boycott the TRP-booster of Sony Entertainment for an indefinite period.
The episode that ended up in fight between Sharma and Grover happened on a return flight from Melbourne when an intoxicated Kapil started abusing Chandan. When Grover tried to pacify Sharma, he was allegedly assaulted verbally and physically by Sharma. Apparently, Sharma called Grover a flop actor who came crawling after an unsuccessful stint at another show.
Sharma also hurt Prabhakar’s morale when he told Prabhakar that he worked in his show just for friendship’s sake. The brawl went to such extend that co-passengers had to requested for an emergency landing.
The entire crew of The Kapil Sharma Show was reportedly upset after the public humiliation meted out to the co-stars by Sharma, and called his act unbecoming of a public figure.
