Comedian Kapil Sharma has been going through tough times after his co-star Sunil Grover walked out of his Sony TV show.
Grover’s departure has adversely impacted the ratings of Kapil Sharma Show with the Sony TV’s once popular programme now slipping six positions to 10th in the week gone by.
Faced with negative prospects, even the channel is understood to have developed cold feet while renewing the contract with Sharma.
Sharma has had to face a massive revolt of sorts after he allegedly abused and physically assaulted Grover during a flight journey from Australia.
This had prompted Grover to quit the show forcing Sharma to issue a public apology.
Grover had later posted a gut-wrenching letter asking Sharma not to behave like God. Soon, he received support from other actors including Ali Asgar and Chandan Prabhakar, both of whom refused to take part in Sony TV’s popular show.
There are reports that Sony is not keen to renew the Rs 107 crore contract with Sharma. Meanwhile, Colors is reportedly in conversation with Grover to launch a rival comedy show against Sharma.
Although, a section of media on Monday reported that Grover was back in the show, the latter’s social media post later appeared to contradict the story.
He, however, returned to Sony TV to shoot a special act while playing the character of Dr Mashoor Gulati, it was for another reality show, Indian Idol. Even though, Sharma was shooting barely few meters away in the Film City, he made no efforts to reach out to Grover.
