On Saturday, the cast of The Kapil Sharma Show was returning from Australia after a performance tour when an altercation between Sharma (who was apparently drunk) and his crew broke out. Sunil Grover, who plays Dr Mashoor Gulati and Rinku Bhabhi on the show, tried to intervene in the scuffle, but Sharma got physical with him inside the flight. Grover, who stood by Sharma after he cut ties with Colors channel and moved to Sony with his new show, later apologised to the other passengers on his friend’s behalf.
“Paji @WhoSunilGrover sry if I hurt u unintentionally.u knw vry well how much I luv u. M also upset .love n regards always:),” Kapil wrote.

On Monday, a DNA report claimed that Grover has decided to quit the show after his public spat with Sharma.
“Sunil is not coming back on The Kapil Sharma Show. He had already recorded the episodes for this weekend (March 18-19) . But he is not returning to the show. Abb bahot ho gaya. Agar Kapil ka yehi rawaiya raha toh aur log bhi nikal jayenge (enough is enough,if Kapil continues in this manner others will also quit),” DNA quoted a source saying.
Sunil Grover has not spoken on the issue yet.
Hindustan Times could not independently verify the reports.
