New Delhi:

Indian comedian-actors Sunil Grover and Kapil Sharma have been making headlines ever since it was announced that the two will be seen together in the Netflix showThe great Indian Kapil show,after a seven year break. There’s no doubt that fans will have a blast seeing the two stand-up comic greats in one frame. However, the collaboration is also special because the duo were once involved in a feud that culminated in a flight from Melbourne – more on that later. With the show set to stream on Netflix, the duo and their team took part in a press conference. During the press meet, Sunil Grover spoke about the fight that took place in 2017. Sunil Grover joked that the fight was a “publicity stunt”, saying: “We were on the flight and heard that Netflix was coming to India. So, cough aisa ho ke (acha) publicity stunt ho.” Sunil Grover further joked that Netflix India contacted them for publicity ideas, and that’s how they came up with this one.

Before Kapil Sharma and Sunil Grover’s infamous feud, the two had worked together on hit projects like Comedy evenings with Kapil And The Kapil Sharma Show. In March 2017, while flying from Melbourne, Australia to India, Kapil Sharma allegedly verbally abused Sunil Grover. As a result, Sunil decided not to return to The Kapil Sharma Show. This led to other co-stars like Ali Asgar and Chandan Prabhakar also leaving the show. However, Chandan later chose to return after a few weeks.

After Sunil Grover’s departure, Kapil Sharma publicly apologized. On You know very well how much I love you. I’m angry too. love and greetings always :)”

In response, Sunil Grover said, “Bha ji! Yes, you hurt me deeply. Working with you has been a learning experience. Just one piece of advice: start respecting people, even apart from animals. Not all of them are as successful as you. Not all of them are as talented as you. But if they are all as talented as you, who will appreciate you? So be grateful for their existence. And also: if someone corrects you, don’t take advantage of that person.”
