Comedian Kapil Sharma, who has been tickling TV viewers' funny bone on his show Comedy Nights With Kapil, has found his way to Forbes India's Celebrity 100 list, securing the 93rd position.

While Kapil may have reason to smile, the controversy surrounding comedian Sunil Grover's exit from his show doesn't seem to die down.

Sunil played the popular character Gutthi on the show.

http://www.hindustantimes.com/Images/popup/2013/11/Gutthi.jpgTalking about the issue, Kapil says,"Sunil got another show. Since he wanted to explore further growth opportunities, he accepted the offer and moved on. I asked him to stay, but he had made up his mind."

Sunil, though, says, "I'm in talks with a lot of people, but haven't signed any contract yet. When things get finalised, why would I hide them? Kiraye ke makaan mein rehne ke baad har banda apna makaan chahta hi hai naa.(After living in a rented house for long, everybody wants to buy their own place)."

He adds, "I don't want to comment on whether Kapil tried to stop me or not."
