Raju who tried reconciling between them said that he had words with Sunil but the actor has no plans to return. In an interview to ABP News, Raju said, "I texted him couple of times and called him to meet us but Sunil was going busy. Few days back, we happened to be shooting nearby, so I went into Sunil's vanity van to cajole him to come back to the show". He told me, "Don't misunderstand me. Don't think that I've become arrogant after gaining fame. I have been tolerating Kapil's antics since long. I thought of quitting many time but because of viewers' love I couldn't do so but this time I won't compromise with self-respect. I am not returning to the show".
