After quitting ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’ following mid-air brawl with the host and ace comedian Kapil Sharma, Sunil Grover aka Dr Gulati hiked his fee. Earlier, the noted comedian charged 7-8 lakhs per episode but now he doubled his fees and charges 13-14 lakhs per episode.

After quitting ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’, Sunil Grover usually opts for special appearances on shows. He demands 13-14 lakhs for a single appearance.

"Sunil has been getting some really good offers for shows but he's focussing on guest appearances and stage shows. Sunil was previously charging Rs. 7-8 lakhs per episode on Kapil's show. Now, he charges around 13-14 lakhs per appearance," DNA quoted a source as saying.

After walking out of ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’, Sunil opted for only special appearances and not ready to be a part of any show permanently through he received ample offers. He refused all of them and only agrees for single appearances. "After his fight with Kapil Shama, Sunil Grover doesn't want to take on any show permanently. However, he will make guest appearances on Comedy Company playing different characters. He doesn't want to be bound to any one show or channel," a source close to Sunil had told DNA.

However, it is also buzzed that lower TRPs has taken a toll at Kapil’s health and repeatedly fainted on the set feeling the pressure of delining TRP of his show. It is also said that he lost Rs. 107 crores contract with Sony.

Kapil’s ill health, low TRP and much such negative circulation gave rise to the rumor that ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’ is going off-air. Totally rubbishing the wrong report, Kiku Sharda said, “Kapil’s absence due to his ill-health has fanned stupid speculations. I don’t want to comment and fans all this further. We have started shooting for the coming weekend.”
