‘Firangi’ star and also renowned comedian Kapil Sharma opened up abuot many issues during his film trailer launch. The issues included rumours that cine stars Salman Khan and Sharukh Khan as well some others may be miffed at the comedian for cancelled shows. He also opened up about the rift between him and Sunil Grover.
“I wanted him (Sunil Grover) to launch ‘Firangi’s trailer. I even asked him to do it but he is in Canada currently. I guess he is performing a show there. So that couldn’t be possible but if he was here he would have definitely been here,” said Kapil when asked if he would like to patch up with Sunil Grover.
It’s upsetting that negative news is valued more on any platform. “But because of it I even started to suffer from anxiety attacks. I miss my team, I can’t detach myself easily from people and things on my mind. Things like these were the reasons why I could not perform and had to cancel a few shows,” Kapil revealed.
Refuting rumours about Salman Khan, Shah Rukh Khan and Anil Kapoor being angry with him as he cancelled the shows which were supposed to feature them, Kapil said, “People wrote stories like, I’ve sent Shah Rukh Khan away from my sets. The thing is I reached the set at 2 p.m. and SRK was supposed to come at 7 p.m.
“He was shooting nearby and somewhere at 8 p.m., I suddenly felt that I cannot shoot, I won’t be able to go on set, I cancelled the shoot and then I cancelled the second shot, third and fourth. Some people understood my problem, but some spread rumours,” Kapil told media.
Explaining the Anil Kapoor episode, Kapil said, “When Anil Kapoor sir came to the sets, he saw that I cannot host the show and he was okay with it. He assured me that he will come next time.
“Shah Rukh Khan came to meet me, he advised me ‘Take rest and set your mind’, and I took his advice and took a break. I even talked to Anil Kapoor as I was feeling guilty about cancelling the shoot,” said Kapil, explaining his side of the story.
Kapil’s upcoming film Firangi is set during the British era. The trailer reveals that the audience will be witnessing the quirkiest fight against the British that has ever been seen.
