I am back as Kapil needs me: Chandan Prabhakar
Comedian Chandan Prabhakar, who had walked out of Kapil Sharma's show following a tiff with the actor-host, says he decided to return as his friend needed him. In March this year, Kapil in an inebriated state had reportedly abused, assaulted and even hurled a shoe at co-star Sunil Grover on a flight from Melbourne to India, leading to many of the crew members exiting the show.
Now, after three months, Chandan has reunited with the Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon actor and is back on the show. "It was not a hardcore decision. It was a reaction for sometime... thats it. Now everything is sorted between us. I felt Kapil needs me now and I should stand by him. "We have been childhood friends and we have fought couple of times earlier as well. But now that we are working on a television show and have become popular, so our fight was talked about."
We all fight in real life with our siblings and its ok," Chandan said. The infamous tiff led to the exit of Kapil's team members including Sunil, Ali Asgar and Chandan following which his show faced low TRPs. "The TRPs were affected due to the unavailability of some characters from the show. We all including me, Sunil, Ali have our own fan following. So when the characters played by us were not part of the show, it did result in the show not getting good response," Chandan says.
There have been reports about Kapil's attitude and arrogance. However, Chandan defends Kapil and calls him a 'genuine' guy.
