Earlier, while promoting his film Bharat, Sunil was asked by the media about being a part of Kapil’s show and if Salman had asked him to return to the show.
To this, Sunil Grover said, “I had a brief talk with Salman sir about coming on the show. He just suggested it, never enforced anything.” He further went on to add, “If I’m not in it, I don’t watch it”.
