While it is being reported that Sunil Grover has made up his mind to not return to The Kapil Sharma Show following the ugly spat with show’s host Kapil Sharma, and Kapil even had to cancel the shoot due to no show by his co-stars, Ali, Chandan and even guest celebs, but here comes the biggest blow to the celebrated comedian. According to a report by mid-day, the show is up for a renewal next month with insiders saying it’d be Rs 106 crore deal but the channel is considering pulling the plug due to all the chaos that is going on between its cast.
A source said, “Kapil has had to cancel shoots as he couldn’t get big celebs as guests. He has, in fact, left for Bikaner to shoot for his film, Phirangi, and will return to Mumbai on March 29.” Source also added that Sunil gets around Rs 7 lakh per episode while Kapil gets around Rs 1 crore an episode.
Source also revealed that the focus may be on Sunil but the one who’s suffered the most from this is Chandan, with whom the whole brawl started in a flight. He wants to work but isn’t comfortable going back to the show, “Pata nahin Kapil ko kiski haye lagi hai; October se show ki TRPs girti jaa rahi hai (don’t know who has cursed Kapil; TRPs of his show have been dipping since last October)”.

After the public spat, both Sunil and Kapil had unfollowed each other on Twitter but now Kapil has started following Sunil on the social media again. A source close to Sunil revealed, “Sunil won’t return to the show even if given a big pay hike. He has several other offers. He just wants this phase to get over.”
