Actor and comedian Sumona Chakravarti has finally weighed in on the Kapil Sharma-Sunil Grover fight. In an interview to India Today, she said she misses her co-stars but understands why they left the show.

Sumona was asked if she thinks what happened on the return flight from Australia in March, where Kapil allegedly threw a shoe in rage at his co-star Sunil Grover, has impacted the show. She replied she still believes the ratings are good. “I actually don’t know, because I wasn’t even there. I was lucky. Thank god, I wasn’t there. Obviously, when you work with a particular team for three-four years and some sort of disagreements happen, at the end of the day we are all adults and we take a decision whether to do or not to do whatever it is,” she said.

The actor added that she misses her co-stars, “Obviously I miss them. They decided to leave. I am sure they had their valid reasons for that. It’s not something that I really get into. But yes, I don’t think apart from the fact that Kapil also misses them and I also miss they always say ‘Come hell or high water, the show must go on!’. That’s exactly what is happening. So, we have been at it and our ratings are good and our episodes have been very-very good.”

Sumona played Kapil’s wife on Comedy Nights With Kapil and joined him again on The Kapil Sharma Show. She will be seen next in TV serial Dev with Ashish Chowdhury where she plays a single mom with psychic abilities.

The show airs on Colors from August 5.
