Now that the controversy around TV comedians Kapil Sharma and Sunil Grover in-flight fight has died down, Grover has said he does not regret quitting The Kapil Sharma Show.

Talking to DNA, Sunil said, “No regrets as such, because I am working non-stop. My mother never had to ask, ‘Beta, tu kaam par kyon nahin jaa raha hai?’”

He expressed happiness at doing live shows. “This break from television has given me a chance to do some serious live shows. I love the live synergy. Right now, as we speak I am in the middle of a performance in Baroda with Sunidhi Chauhan. The audience’s response is overwhelming. Watching them, I know I wouldn’t have to sit at home even if I didn’t do television.”

On returning to TV, the actor said, “I won’t deny the fact that there are offers. Yes, I’ve been asked to do another show. But until I am contract-bound with Sony. There is nothing else that I can talk about, let alone contemplate or accept. Once I am free to look at my options on television, I will speak about the offers.”

The comedian also said, “I was in 92 of those 100 episodes (of The Kapil Sharma Show). So what if I missed out my century by eight runs? If Sachin Tendulkar only thought of centuries, he wouldn’t be the legend that he is. I don’t want to sound arrogant. I am happy I did those 92 episodes of the show. I carry beautiful memories of the experience. Now it’s time to move on.”
