However, little over an hour after the ANI tweet, Grover, known for his Dr Mashoor Gulati character, appeared to contradict the report.
He tweet screenshot of his son, Mohan, saying he didn’t quite know what the ‘future holds for me.’
He wrote, “And yes am feeling a little lost at this moment and nervous too. Don’t know what the future holds for me. But thank God my son Mohan is sleeping next to me. As I look at his innocent face, I feel lucky to have such a reason to smile. (sic)”

What appeared to contribute to media speculation was a tweet from filmc ritic Kamal K R Khan, who tweeted on Tuesday, “Sunil Grover is back with Kapil Sharma n it’s proof that he doesn’t have any respect. Next time Kapil should beat him 25 times by his shoes.”

On Monday, we had reported how Grover had taken a dig at Sharma adding that he was quite enjoying the ‘tamasha’ on the controversy.
He had told Bollywoodhungama.com, “I am very relaxed, very introspective, deep in thought about my future plans…I am just watching all the tamasha that’s going on. It’s very entertaining.”
When contacted, a relaxed Grover had told Janta Ka Reporter, “I didn’t give much attention to assessing if my decision (to quit Kapil Sharma Show) was right or wrong. But, I had very little options left. I’ve not yet decided my future course of actions.”
Grover had walked off the Kapil Sharma Show after an in-flight brawl where Sharma was accused of having physically assaulted him in a drunken state.
Though, Sharma had publicly apologised for his misdemeanor, the step had failed to placate Grover, who accused him of behaving like God.
Grover was then joined by two more actors from the popular Sony TV show, when Ali Asghar and Chandan Prabhakar too boycotted Kapil Sharma Show.
Faced with a massive revolt, Sharma was forced to call in Srivastava, Ehsan Qureshi and Sunil Pal.
Meanwhile, it has also emerged that Sharma was reportedly forced to cancel his Wednesday shoot as neither comedians nor any star guests turned up.
This comes amidst reports that Sony is not keen to renew the contract worth Rs 107 crore with Sharma fearing significant loss to the show’s TRP in the absence of its popular characters.
Colors TV too are reportedly in conversation with Grover and Asghar for a comedy show.
