Kapil Sharma's former colleague Ali Asgar recently spoke about the comedian's mental health and also revealed that Kapil has ex-girlfriend Preeti Simoes's name tattooed on his hand.
However, Kapil's spokesperson refuted Ali's claim and said, "As a part of Mr. Kapil Sharma’s team, we would like to emphasize that recent stories doing the rounds that Mr. Sharma has met Mr. Ali Asgar and has written Ms Preeti Simoes name on his hand are completely false. We are equally shocked to hear about this ourselves and are surprised that Mr. Asgar, whom Mr. Sharma has always considered a friend, would make such hurtful statements. In fact, Mr. Sharma and his fiancee, Ginni are currently travelling together. We request the media to reach out to us to ensure our views are represented and the truth is brought to light"
Reacting to this, Preeti exclusively told us, "I don't understand one thing, on one hand, they say he is in depression, on the other hand, they say he is traveling. Moreover, what will Ali Asgar get by lying? Whatever Ali bhai blurted out in the spur of the moment, I am sure he did not have any malicious intention to it. What could be the wrong intention? In the end, Kapil should be happy that even if Ali bhai said something, he is with you."
She further questioned Kapil, "Isn't he saying the same thing that you [Kapil] are saying? He is giving his version of the story and you are making a man who has been in the industry for over 20 years look like a liar."
"If Sunil Grover is saying on twitter that he did not get any call for this particular show, you call him a jhootha, Neeti and Preeti are lying, I don't understand what is happening," she asked.
Further, speaking about having to start over with the same team, Preeti added, "Neeti and I are currently running our production house for around a year now after we were left hanging post the Australia incident. If we really were the mastermind, Sunil, Neeti and I would have launched a show two-three months after the fallout but we didn't do that because we were genuinely attached and loved the person we were with. It took us longer to get out of an emotional situation and the same team is now working for Dan Dana Dhan."
