Comedian Kapil Sharma clearly has faced too many lows this year. From the ‘fight in flight’ episode with co-star Sunil Grover to cancelling numerous shoots with A-listers like Shah Rukh Khan and Anil Kapoor, is going through a rough patch.
But, at the trailer launch of his upcoming film Firangi, the actor decided probably to reveal it all. Apparently, his hectic work schedule caused his behavioural issues.
When Kapil gave justification on his scuffle with Sunil Grover
I never had a major fight with Sunil, but things were blown out of proportion. I love him and I like to work with best people. I was bit irritated, that’s it.
During the Australia tour, one of our artists passed away during the shoot of Firangi. And a fight between Chandan Prabhakar and a girl from the show triggered my anger. When we were about to leave for Australia I saw him (Prabhakar) and I started abusing him and even he abused me. Sunil was around when this happened and he was worried for me. By the way he also shouted at me.
When Kapil spoke about cancelling shoots with SRK and Anil Kapoor
I was disturbed. When you have a huge team with you, you have to manage lot of things and I am not good at it. I used to not sleep for days as I was busy shooting for my film and the show. After the shooting for the film wrapped up I read thousands of news about me in two months. I am an impulsive person and I can’t change that but I am clean from within. I was depressed after reading about these news and was getting anxiety attacks. There were reports about me not shooting with Shah Rukh Khan, the truth is he was suppose to come on the sets at 7:00 pm and I was present there since 2:00 pm, at 8:00 pm I felt I would not be able to shoot, I can’t perform on stage.
Anil Kapoor told me if I am not well we will not shoot. Even Shah Rukh came to meet me again and told me to take rest.
When Kapil openly talked about his alcohol problem
Continuous work and negative stories started taking a toll on my health and I had to seek medical assistance to come out of it. People from the industry supported him a lot during my tough times. I took a break and went to Bangalore and underwent treatment. When I came back I used to lock myself in the room and drink a lot, I was not able to handle or manage things. I have hurt myself a lot and I think three more months will pass for me to recover completely.
