Kapil Sharma – Sunil Grover
Kapil Sharma and Sunil Grover’s infamous mid-air brawl was one of the most talked about issues in the country for quite some time. It so happened that they were returning from Australia, after delivering a power packed performance when Kapil started hurling abuses and shoes at the latter, under the influence of liquor. The team split into two after landing in Mumbai. Sunil Grover along with Ali Asgar and Chandan Prabhakar left Kapil’s show. Kapil Sharma tried hard to get Sunil back on the show, but the latter’s absence resulted in the downfall of The Kapil Sharma Show and it was finally pulled off air.

So today, when he paints me as a woman in fur enticing him into her bedroom with candles, or desperately calling him and mailing other women on his behalf, I can only laugh.”

Ghamand be aaj tak kisi ka kuch bhalaa nahi kiya.. sakshi tanwar u are beautiful.” Most small screen actors came out in support of Gauahar at that time.
