After their last year's infamous mid-air brawl, Kapil Sharma and Sunil Grover are not in talking terms with each other. Though the two comedians have maintained that they are on their separate ways, it is Salman Khan who is trying his best to make peace between the two friends-turned-foes.
While Salman is producing Kapil Sharma's new show, Sunil Grover is sharing space with the Dabangg Khan in director Ali Abbas Zafar's upcoming film Bharat.
When Sunil was asked whether Salman was trying to mediate a patch-up with Kapil, he confirmed that the superstar brought it up in a discussion.
"Salman sir is producing that show. My own dates would have clashed (with Kapil's show) as I am doing a film with Salman sir. This show that I am doing for Star Plus fitted in the window that I had.
"But he (Salman) did speak to me briefly about it (bringing two of us together). We had a very casual chat about it but nothing much," Sunil told PTI.
When asked whether he would like to collaborate or work again with Kapil, Sunil, who is back on the small screen with a new comedy show called Kanpur Wale Khuranas, said that he is not certain at this point of time and is currently busy with his show and hoping to bring smile on everyone's faces. The eight-episode show will start airing from December 15.
Meanwhile, the new season of The Kapil Sharma Show is also going to go on air by the end of December on Sony TV and may clash with the timings of Sunil's comedy show which airs on Star Plus.
In 2014, Sunil's own comedy show Mad in India aired on the channel, after he left Comedy Nights with Kapil amid issues with Kapil. The show failed to garner TRPs.
Talking about the comparisons, the comedian, says, "We love comparisons. We often love to compare ourselves - be it personally or professionally. But each individual has their own unique quality."
Sunil says both the shows aim to bring out laughter and "the more the merrier".
"There is so much of stress around and such shows only make viewers happy. I wish good luck to both the shows."
