Speaking to The Quint, a close friend of Sunil’s said that the actor has not given any statements to any media houses as is falsely being reported. He also said that Sunil is contractually bound with Sony (which airs the Kapil Sharma Show) until April 23 and is therefore not in a position to address what happened during the fight between him and Kapil.
“To even suggest that Sunil is asking for a fee hike to continue with The Kapil Sharma Show, as is being insinuated by a section of the press, is ridiculous. Even if Sunil is offered twice the current remuneration he wouldn’t continue with the show. He has made up his mind to move on,” the friend said.
Kapil and Sunil reportedly had a fight as they were flying back with their team to Mumbai from Australia after a show. Apparently, Kapil got drunk, belittled Sunil and also physically assaulted him. Sharma apologised to him on Twitter.
