Former Kapil Sharma Show actors Sugandha Mishra and Ali Asgar, who quit the show in support of Mr Grover, are also reportedly offended with Kiku Sharda for his tweet
NEW DELHI: TV comedian Kiku Sharda was the only actor who continued to be part of The Kapil Sharma Show after Kapil Sharma’s alleged altercation with Sunil Grover. Now, Mr Sharda has reportedly upset his former co-star Mr Grover after he tweeted about a comparison of the viewership ratings of Kapil Sharma’s show and Super Night With Tubelight, hosted by Mr Grover. Mr Sharda actually replied to a fan, who shared that according to Broadcast Adiudience Research Council (BARC), Mr Sharma’s show stumped Mr Grover’s, saying “God is kind.” Former Kapil Sharma Show actors Sugandha Mishra and Ali Asgar, who quit the show in support of Mr Grover, are also reportedly offended with Kiku Sharda for his tweet.

Times Of India reports that according to Mr Grover’s team, ratings of Super Night With Tubelight and Mr Sharma’s show cannot really be compared because of the difference in promotional strategies. Super Night, which is a promotional segment for Salman Khan’s film Tubelight, also had to be rescheduled by an hour for the much-awaited India-Pakistan Champions Trophy finale on June 18. Super Night With Tubelight airs on Sony, which also telecasts The Kapil Sharma Show.
Earlier last month, Kiku Sharda welcomed Chandan Prabhakar back on Mr Sharma’s show, tweeting: “Aksar wahi rishtey lajawaab hote hain, jo zamane se nahi, ehsaaso se bane hote hain.” Mr Prabhakar was absent from The Kapil Sharma Show for a period of three months after the host’s alleged fight with Sunil Grover. Mr Prabhakar also recently shared screen space with Mr Grover in an episode of reality show Sabse Bada Kalakaar.

Ratings for Kapil Sharma‘s show suffered massively after Sunil Grover quit the show. The show, which marked its centennial episode in May, is reportedly being replaced by Salman Khan’s Dus Ka Dum because of its dipping TRP’s. Apart from Kiku Sharda and Chandan Prabhakar, comedians Raju Srivastava and Upasna Singh are feature on Kapil Sharma’s show.
After quitting Kapil Sharma’s show, Sunil Grover has continued to make appearances in solo gigs and special shows and will also be seen on Krushna Abhishek’s new show Comedy Company. Sunil Grover quit Kapil Sharma’s show alleging that the 36-year-old TV personality assualted him physically and abused him verbally during a flight back from Australia.
