A day after it was reported how comedian Kapil Sharma was involved in alleged brawl during a flight with his co-actor Sunil Grover, the popular TV host has clarified that it was a friendly fight.
Speaking to Bollywoodlife, he said, “Mujhe yaad nahi (I don’t remember). Actually hamari har flight main ladai hoti hai (We fight on every flight)…har jagah ladai hoti hai (We fight everywhere)…It is a healthy fight…We fight for work…We fight for good work.”
The popular comedian also took to his Facebook page to say that what happened inside the flight was a friendly fight.
This is what he wrote on his Facebook;
“Hi.. good morning friends .. was celebrating my best time n suddenly I heard a news about me n sunil paji fighting.. first of all see where it is coming from.. what r the intentions behind this.. if I fought with him in the flight then who saw it n informed u.. is he trustworthy..?

According to media reports, Sharma, who was reportedly drunk, allegedly hurled abuses at Grover and even assaulted him physically while returning from Australia. Both have also unfollowed each other on microblogging site, Twitter.
DNA, meanwhile, reported that Grover was all set to quit the show again.
“Sunil is not coming back on The Kapil Sharma Show. He had already recorded the episodes for this weekend (March 18-19) . But he is not returning to the show. Abb bahot ho gaya. Agar Kapil ka yehi rawaiya raha toh aur log bhi nikal jayenge (enough is enough,if Kapil continues in this manner others will also quit),” the website quoted sources.
Grover had quit Kapil Sharma Show in the past when it was broadcast on Colors TV to launch his own show on rival Star Plus. But the comedian had later returned to be the part of the popular comedy show with Sharma after few months.
Janta Ka Reporter contacted Grover for a reaction, but the actor wasn’t available for a comment.
