Despite several attempts to get them to reconcile — the latest including a witty plea by Rishi Kapoor on Twitter — it doesn't seem as though the Sunil Grover and Kapil Sharma feud is likely to end anytime soon.

The details of their extremely public falling out — after Sharma allegedly assaulted Grover on a Melbourne-India flight in March 2017 — are by now well known. It led to Grover and other cast members like Ali Asgar walking off The Kapil Sharma Show.

Sony shared this video of Grover from the sets:

As for when they will ever shoot together, neither Grover nor Sharma have any answers to offer — although TV industry insiders have hinted at an April-end return for "Dr Gulati" on The Kapil Sharma Show.
