Kapil Sharma and Sunil Grover during Kapil Sharma Show Photograph:( Twitter )
Will Indian comedians who have been at loggerheads with each other since last year ever give it a break? The most honest answer as of now can be 'no'. Kapil Sharma and Sunil Grover who behave like friends-turned-foe are back at slinging abuses and pulling each other's pants down, one tweet at a time.
Just days before TV star Kapil Sharma makes his comeback with Family Time With Kapil show, social media got a whiff of the bitterness between Sharma and Grover. While Grover complained that Sharma never approached him for the new show, Sharma got furious at his 'lies'.
Sharma tweeted: “The thing is u r smarter then me. u know when n how to play .. n I am a dumb emotional.”
This, he replied to Grover's tweet which read: “Bhai aap jaise kuch aur log bhi mujhse same poochte hain . Lekin mujhe iss show ke liye KOI call nahin aaya . Mera phone number bhi same hai. Intezar kar Ke ab maine kuch aur sign kar liya kal . Aap logon ki duaon se ek achhe project Ke sath juda hoon. Jaldi aapke samne Aata hoon.” (No one approached me for this show. I hope you pray for me and that I keep getting success though.)
This is the trail of tweets in order:

Grover to Sharma:
Kapil Sharma and Sunil Grover were once a part of the same show Comedy Nights With Kapil and used to hit it off together before an inebriated Sharma misbehaved with colleague Grover and things went down the hill from there. There spat also took a toll on the show as many others from the show quit, citing Sharma's indecent conduct and behavioural issues.
