There have been recent media reports claiming that actor and comedian Sunil Grover had an altercation with fellow performer Kapil Sharma aboard an Australia-bound flight recently.

To put the issue to rest, Kapil Sharma on his Twitter account apologised to Sunil Grover. Kapil's post reads, "Paji Sunil Grover sorry if I hurt you unintentionally. You know very well how much I love you. I am also upset. Love and regards always."

But Sunil Grover was not mollified by Kapil Sharma's apparent posturing. He minced no words, telling Kapil that he has been hurt deeply and advising him to stop acting like he was a god. His tweet reads, "Bha hi! Yes, you hurt me deeply. Working 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 a lot more success and fame."

Kapil Sharma and Sunil Grover go a long way back having worked together in two of the biggest stand-up comedy shows Comedy Nights with Kapil (2013-2016) and The Kapil Sharma Show (2016-Present).

It is not clear if Sunil Grover has quit The Kapil Sharma Show after the incident. Viewers will surely get to see for themselves in the coming days.
