The controversies around Kapil Sharma, his co-actor Sunil Grover and their TV show, The Kapil Sharma Show, just do not seem to die down. After reports of Ali Asgar and Chandan Prabhakar ‘boycotting’ the show and Sunil Pal and Raju Srivastava being called in as replacement, Raju has now claimed he will not “replace anyone, even if he joins the show.

Raju told NDTV, “I too have read reports saying I have replaced Sunil in the show or that I have joined the show. When I went for the shoot on Tuesday, I had no idea about Sunil and Kapil’s fight. I have been a part of this show earlier. I haven’t officially been offered to join the show so far but a lot of people on the set told me that I should be a part of it. Kapil also called me and praised me. I want to make it clear that I am not replacing anyone. It’s possible that Sunil and I could feature together on the show.”

Earlier, a Spotboye report had quoted a source from the sets of The Kapil Sharma Show as saying, “The lights are certainly dimming. We made SOS calls to Sunil Pal, Raju Srivastava and Ahsaan Qureshi after the (infamous) flight to raise a laugh, and thankfully they agreed.”

Kapil and Sunil, reportedly, had a fight as they were flying back with their team to Mumbai from Australia, after a show. Apparently, the former got drunk, belittled Sunil and also physically assaulted him. Kapil took to Twitter to apologise but Sunil is yet to accept the apology.

Meanwhile, Kapil’s professional rival Krushna Abhishek has extended support to him saying that friends often fight and there was nothing unusual about it. It is interesting to note that Krushna, who is currently hosting Comedy Nights Bachao (a show that replaced Kapil’s Comedy Nights), had expressed interest in working with Kapil again.
