The buzz about the Kapil Sharma show just do not seem to end. According to the latest reports, Raju Srivastava has been called up as a replacement in the show, after the incident where Kapil Sharma allegedly assaulted Sunil Grover during a flight due to which the actor has quit the show including Ali Asgar and Chandan Prabhakar. Though Raju has now claimed that he will not "replace" anybody.
When asked about it Raju told NDTV, “I too have read reports saying I have replaced Sunil in the show or that I have joined the show. When I went for the shoot on Tuesday, I had no idea about Sunil and Kapil’s fight. I have been a part of this show earlier. I haven’t officially been offered to join the show so far but a lot of people on the set told me that I should be a part of it. Kapil also called me and praised me. I want to make it clear that I am not replacing anyone. It’s possible that Sunil and I could feature together on the show.”
Raju while shooting for an episode for the popular comedy show also revealed that none of the regular cast members apart from Kiku Sharda, were present at the recording. "Kiku Sharda was the only member from the original team who shot for Tuesday's episode. Sunil Grover, Ali Asgar, Chandan Prabhakar and Sugandha Mishra weren't there," he said.
Kapil and Sunil, reportedly, had a fight as they were flying back with their team to Mumbai from Australia, after a show. The former got drunk, abused Sunil and assaulted him. Kapil took to Twitter to apologise which apparently created a lot of buzz about the existence of the 'Mashoor Gulati', popular character played by Sunil Grover in the show.
