New Delhi :

Sunil Grover has broken his silence on the recent tiff with Kapil Sharma and stated that he is a more ‘mashoor’ than "The Kapil Sharma Show" host. 

The stand-up comedian spoke up on his equation with Sharma and asserted that they are a part of a single team with no competition between them.

However, Grover also made a point that when it comes to working, he finds himself better than Kapil in terms of acting and stands ahead of him when it comes to popularity.

“You know what the most important thing is? That people are watching the show. As long as the TRP is up and audiences are loving us, none of us wants anything else. It was never Kapil vs Gutthi. It would never be. There’s no competition. We are a part of a single team and we need to cooperate and coordinate. But I cannot deny that I’m more popular than Kapil. And that is an excellent feeling. But yes, people are used to seeing all of us together. The formula works,” Sunil Grover was quoted saying to Times Of India.

He even added, “When it comes to wit, Kapil is better. But I am a better actor”.

Kapil and Sunil came at loggerheads after Sharma allegedly assaulted Grover during a flight in front of the passengers.

It was also reported that Sunil, who is seen playing the role of Mashoor Gulati in ‘The Kapil Sharma show’, has left the show along with Ali Asgar and Chandan Prabhakar.

The incident invoked a sense of sympathy for him and invited flak for Kapil.

Overwhelmed by the audience’s response, Grover even thanked his fans with an emotional message.

He took it to micro-blogging Twitter and wrote, “ My thanks and gratitude for all the love. I am non-existent without love. My public identity is just because of the love you shower. I embrace it. It fills my heart and leaves no place for hate. I just want to surrender myself to good work, good people who acknowledge my intentions genuinely. And yes I am feeling a little lost at this moment and nervous too. Don’t know what the future holds for me. But thank god my son Mohan is sleeping next to me. As I look at his innocent face, I feel lucky to have such a reason to smile. It reassures me that no matter what Tom will be beautiful. New.... Yet beautiful”.

On the other hand, there is a buzz that Sunil is back on the show along with the other members and is also reportedly shooting for the new episode.

It will be interesting to see if our favourite Mashoor Gulati will be back on ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’.
