Sunil Grover has stayed true to his word and refused to return to the Kapil Sharma Show in any capacity following his public brawl with the show’s host Kapil Sharma.

After several vague Twitter exchanges, clarifications, and apologies, it is now being said that Grover is ready to debut his own show, and like the Kapil Sharma Show, it will also feature celebrities.

A Times of India report claims to have more details about the new show. It says that while celebrities will be involved, the makers will try to differentiate it from Kapil’s show. Sunil Grover’s name won’t be in the title, as “he is not very comfortable with the idea.”

Guests will include celebrities, and other talent like musicians and comedians. And Ali Asgar, Chandan Prabhakar and Sugandha Mishra will also be joining the programme.


While Grover is in talks with Sony to air the show, he is fielding offers from rival channels as well.

And the biggest revelation? The show will premiere in June.

Kapil and Sunil had a falling out after Sharma allegedly attacked him on a flight after verbally abusing and humiliating him in a drunken brawl in March.
