Air India to warn Kapil Sharma for mid-air brawl with Sunil Grover?

In more trouble for ace comedian Kapil Sharma, Air India is planning to issue him a warning for his recent fracas with fellow comedian Sunil Grover abroad a Melbourne-Mumbai flight, when the team of ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’ were returning after a tour to Australia.

Air India chief Ashwani Lohani had sought a report on the inflight behaviour of this star comedian, and the warning – the exact nature of which is yet to be finalised — is likely to be issued this week, according to a report in The Times of India.

According to reports, Kapil slapped Sunil and hurled a shoe at him, and continued shouting swear words, despite warnings from the cabin crew. During the incident, co-passengers, including an elderly lady, took umbrage at Kapil’s unruly behaviour and asked the crew to intervene. Kapil, who was in a drunken state at that time, refused to listen.

Sources also added that Kapil even hurled abuses at colleagues Ali Asgar and Chandan Prabhakar, who have reportedly boycotted the show. Kapil and team was flying in business class of a Melbourne-Delhi flight (AI 309) on March 16.  

This comes in the wake of a similar nuisance that was created by Shiv Sena MP Ravindra Gaikwad who was barred from flying the airline after he physically assaulted a 60-year-old duty manager with slippers over not being able to fly business class despite having boarded an all-economy Pune-New Delhi flight.
