Rishi Kapoor received the comeback of the year from Sunil Grover, who responded: "Sir, I am not playing this season because I am retired hurt."
Sunil Pal said: "Together you and Kapil have made the show a huge success. You are two wheels of the show and I'm afraid you won't be anything without each other"
"Their contract ends in April and Kapil was being paid Rs 107 crore for a renewal. Now, that seems unlikely," revealed a source
The actors' reported absenting themselves from the planned Wednesday shoot is being seen as a show of support for Sunil Grover who was allegedly assaulted by Kapil Sharma on a flight some days ago
