Sunil Grover speaks up about how he has no regrets whatsoever leaving The Kapil Sharma Show.
A lot has been spoken about Kapil Sharma and Sunil Grover’s split. And if you have been hoping to see them together again, it’s not going to happen and that is for sure. A couple of times, Sunil has confirmed the news either directly or indirectly. And now, in an official statement, the stand-up comedian has once again clarified that he has indeed MOVED ON. In an interview with DNA, Sunil speaks up about how he has no regrets whatsoever leaving The Kapil Sharma Show. “No regrets as such, because I am working non-stop. My mother never had to ask, ‘Beta, tu kaam par kyon nahin jaa raha hai?’ This break from television has given me a chance to do some serious live shows. I love the live synergy. Right now, as we speak I am in the middle of a performance in Baroda with Sunidhi Chauhan. The audiences’ response is overwhelming. Watching them, I know I wouldn’t have to sit at home even if I didn’t do television,” he said.
Also, now that The Kapil Sharma Show has completed 100 episodes, Sunil was asked to express his views about the same. Does he feel nostalgic? Does he miss being on the show? Here’s what he had to say regarding that. “I was in 92 of those 100 episodes. And so what if I missed out my century by eight runs? If Sachin Tendulkar only thought of centuries he wouldn’t be the legend that he is. I don’t want to sound arrogant. I am happy I did those 92 episodes of the show. I carry beautiful memories of the experience. Now it’s time to move on.”
He further talked about how he has been flooded with offers but he doesn’t plan to take up anytime soon because he is contract-bound. “I won’t deny the fact that there are offers. Yes, I’ve been asked to do another show. But until I am contract-bound with Sony there is nothing else that I can talk about, let alone contemplate or accept. Once I am free to look at my options on television I will speak about the offers,” he said further.
