Hours after comedian/actor Kapil Sharma set the internet ablaze by introducing his girlfriend Ginni, and then saying that he would marry her within a year, it seems like he isn’t done just yet. Reports are doing the rounds online that Sharma physically assaulted fellow comedian, and cast mate of The Kapil Sharma Show, Sunil Grover, on a flight.
The cast of the popular comedy show was returning from Australia after a performance tour when an altercation between Sharma (who is said to have been drunk) and his crew broke out, an Indian Express report says.
The report goes on to say that Grover tried to intervene in the scuffle, but Sharma got physical with him while others looked on. Grover, who stood by Sharma after he cut ties with Colors channel and moved to Sony with his new show, later apologised to the other passengers on his friend’s behalf.
An eyewitness on the flight told The Quint: “Without any provocation, Kapil pounced on Sunil Grover. We saw Kapil loudly abusing Sunil. Sunil kept quiet, probably thinking that Kapil would calm down after the outburst. But Kapil got more aggressive. His loud abuses could be heard right across the flight cabin.He then physically assaulted Sunil. That’s when all hell broke loose. The flight attendants rushed to the spot.They wanted to handcuff Kapil in order to restrain him. To his credit Sunil stood by his unruly colleague and asked the cabin crew to overlook his drunken behaviour.
