The much talked about tiff between Kapil Sharma-Sunil Grover doesn't seem to die down anytime soon. And while Kapil is facing the adversities of the brawl with reported poor TRPs for 'The Kapil Sharma Show', it is Sunil who is in a mood to cash in all the hype over their fight.
According to the media reports, Sunil has recently doubled his fees and is charging a whopping amount of Rs 14 lakhs per episode.
Sunil, who had walked out of 'The Kapil Sharma Show' post his brawl with Kapil, is now seen making guest appearances on shows and events and is enjoying immense popularity as well as a result of which he chose to hike his fees.
“Sunil has been getting some really good offers for shows but he’s focussing on guest appearances and stage shows. Sunil was previously charging Rs 7-8 lakhs per episode on Kapil’s show. Now, he charges around Rs 13-14 lakh per appearance,” a source reportedly told DNA.
On the other hand, Kapil Sharma is reportedly facing a tough time for TKSS which is in turn taking a toll on his health. In fact, if the media reports are to be believed Sharma is even slashed his fees owing to the declining TRPs.
The reports also suggested that Kapil Sharma even lost out Rs 107 crore deal post his fight with Sunil. Besides, the buzz is there that Sony is also planning to pull down 'The Kapil Sharma Show'.
However, Kiku Sharda has rubbished the reports and told Bollywood Life, “Kapil’s absence due to his ill-health has fanned stupid speculations. I don’t want to comment and fans all this further. We have started shooting for the coming weekend.”
We wonder if this much hyped fight with Sunil is the reason behind Kapil's ill health.
For the uninitiated, Kapil Sharma had allegedly assaulted Sunil Grover during a flight and even manhandled him reportedly, post which the latter walked out of TKSS.
