The buzz around Kapil Sharma and Sunil Grover’s fight just doesn’t seem to subside, as more and more details spill out about the big tiff. Kapil’s image is taking a beating as someone who can’t handle either his stardom or his drinks. The latest “account of  an eyewitness” suggests that the star anchor even hurled a shoe at the Sunil. But that’s far from the truth, suggests our source. “Kapil never hurled a shoe at Sunil on the flight. This is  purely a  figment of someone’s imagination. Kapil is now being painted as the full-blown villain of the piece. The villain is actually his addiction to the bottle. He’s otherwise a decent and kind man, a wonderful son and a true animal-lover. The team likes Kapil when he is sober.”

Says an  actor who was on Kapil’s show recently to promote his film, “We were at the studio for a good two hours before he showed up. Of course we were annoyed. But once he reached it was okay. He is a lot of fun to work with.”

Actors also complain that Kapil doesn’t call them directly anymore to extend an invitation to come on the show. A senior actor says, “He gets his staff to ring me up to come on the show. I told the girl who called to invite me to tell Kapil to call if he wants me to be on the show. That’s how  it was earlier.”
