Actor Salman Khan upset comedian turned actor Kapil Sharma when he chose to promote his film "Hero" on "Comedy Nights Bachao" and ditched Kapil's show "Comedy Nights With Kapil."

And looks like Kapil is still miffed with the actor for the same. When Kapil was recently asked who he thought was the perfect replacement as the host of his show Salman or Shah Rukh Khan, the comedian immediately replied, "Shah Rukh Khan," according to India Forum.

As earlier reported, the "Prem Ratan Dhan Payo" actor was last seen in "CNWK" when he had gone there to promote "Bajrangi Bhaijaan", but for "Hero" promotions, Salman chose Kapil's rival show "Comedy Nights Bachao".

"Ever since CNWK started, Salman has come on Kapil's show to promote every film of his. Now suddenly he has gone to CNB to promote Hero with Sooraj Pancholi and Aathiya Shetty because his brother Sohail is associated with the comic actors on CNB. It's a big blow for Kapil's ego. On his show, the very next night Salman would be conspicuous by his absence," DNA quoted a source as saying.

Kapil is known to share a good rapport with several Bollywood actors, especially with Shah Rukh Khan, and hence it is not known if he chose SRK due to his equation or if he is still annoyed with Salman. 

While SRK and Kapil share a cordial relationship and SRK has promoted all his films on "Comedy Nights With Kapil" till date, he went a step further and attended the screening of "Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon" in Hyderabad. Since then, Kapil seems to have become a big fan of the actor.
