The ugly spat between TV comedy star Kapil Sharma and his co-star Sunil Grover is popping new twists every day. After Sunil chided Kapil following his apology, the latter’s professional rival Krushna Abhishek has now backed him.

Speaking to DNA, Krushna said, “I won’t say Kapil has become too big or success has gone to his head. It’s just that even the small things he does are being blown out of proportion. I have worked with Kapil for five years in Comedy Circus and I know him very well—his good and bad points—and he knows mine. Sunil and Kapil are good friends and friends fight.”

Kapil and Sunil, reportedly, had a fight as they were flying down with their team to Mumbai from Australia, after a show. Apparently, the former got drunk and belittled Sunil and also physically assaulted him. Kapil took to Twitter to apologise and wrote late on Monday, ““Paji @WhoSunilGrover sry if I hurt u unintentionally.u knw vry well how much I luv u. M also upset .love n regards always:).”

Sunil, however responded with a long note, pouring his heart out over the whole brouhaha and captioned it, “From a friend, with love.” The note said, “Bhai ji! 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.”

Krushna also spoke on those lines. “Right now, Kapil is doing well, his show is a success so people are making a big deal out of it. Kapil is talented and has been taking his entire team along with him for four years now, which is not a small thing,” he said.

“Also, Sunil had quit Kapil’s show earlier too, but went back. As I said, two friends can fight after drinking, on the sets, on creative issues, on a dinner table or at home, and there’s nothing unusual about it,” he told DNA.

Earlier in February this year, Krushna had expressed his desire to work with Kapil again. “People would be waiting to see both of us on stage. I think that would be like Shah Rukh and Salman doing a film together. That would be a lot of fun. That time will definitely come.,” he had told Hindustan Times.
