Sunil Grover wishes ‘good luck’ to Kapil for new show




Mumbai, March 18: Comedian Sunil Grover wished luck to his former “The Kapil Sharma Show” co-star Kapil Sharma for his upcoming show despite the latter accusing him of lying. But Sunil maintains that he was not offered to be a part of Kapil’s new show.

Last year, Sunil walked out of “The Kapil Sharma Show” after Kapil allegedly verbally abused him and hit him with a shoe during a flight.

Kapil, who took a break from small screen for a while, is making a comeback with “Family Time With Kapil Sharma”.

After a fan asked Sunil about working with Kapil again, Sunil tweeted: “There are more people who asked me the same question. But I didn’t get a call for this show. My phone number is the same.”

On Sunday, Kapil decided to keep “nothing personal” and reply back to Sunil in a series of tweets.

“Please don’t spread rumours that I didn’t call you… He is lying. I called him 100 times and sent my people to his home. Even I went to his home to meet him for the show but now I will not let anybody take advantage on my name. Enough is enough,” Kapil said.

A Twitter user showed support to Kapil.

After which Kapil wrote: “Yes, I love him but sometimes it hurts a lot when you do a lot of hard work for somebody and he just wants fame in your name. Why did he choose to speak up now? A year later?”

“I don’t want his support but at least he should not spread rumours. I am tired of all this.”

Responding to his tweets, Sunil wrote: “Now people know the answer why I didn’t join the show earlier. I am talking about ‘this’ show. You are bringing up an old topic.”

“I didn’t speak up for one year as details about your bad behaviour would come out in the public and I wanted your dignity to stay intact. We have done very good work together.

“I referred to this show and not the previous show. And you are a better comedian. Everyone knows it. But I will still keep trying with whatever I know. Take care. There are only two kidneys and one liver. Take care of your health. Again, I will say I have not been offered for this show. Good luck for the new show. Wishes and love,” Sunil signed off.

Nobody’s voice should be called fringe voice: Prasoon Joshi

I was disappointed with headlines like 400 cuts! Where did that come from? Why give air to such things and disrespect us? What do you have to explain? Media needs to do some introspection.



New Delhi, March 17 : Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) chairperson Prasoon Joshi on Saturday reflected upon the controversy over Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s “Padmaavat”, and said nobody’s voice should be referred to as a “fringe voice”.

Joshi was at the News18 Rising India Summit where he spoke on creative freedom, especially in the light of the film “Padmaavat”, on Saturday. He shared the dias with Minister of Information and Broadcasting Smriti Irani.

“No one’s voice should be called a fringe voice because it is demeaning. For many people, our voices, voices of people sitting comfortably in a five-star hotel and debating, could be considered fringe,” Joshi said.

“When it comes to metaphors like ‘Rajputi shaan’, there is a reason how metaphors come in. I don’t think suspended reality is there.

“In ‘Padmaavat’, we went on to understand it as humanly as possible and I believe an artiste does not want to hurt society. If concerns come, you have to take a call. We did so… Many suggestions happened, changes were made, the letter ‘i’ was removed from the title… There is a reason, a thought,” he added.

Joshi himself faced the ire of Rajput organisations opposing the release of “Padmaavat” as the censor board chief had given a clean chit to the historical drama after suggesting a few disclaimers and edits.

He says at the end, it was collectively decided with the filmmaker to “stay true to the poem ‘Padmaavat'”, and so only little changes were demanded.

“I was disappointed with headlines like 400 cuts! Where did that come from? Why give air to such things and disrespect us? What do you have to explain? Media needs to do some introspection,” he added.

“Padmaavat” went through a tumultous journey from the beginning of its shoot till its release and beyond over conjectures that it distorted historical facts.

Rajput organisation Shree Rajput Karni Sena was up in arms against the makers, and not just vandalised its sets twice and assaulted Bhansali, but also held major protests across the country opposing the film’s release.
