Kapil Sharma is looking west.  

Kapil Sharma’s former manager, Neeti Simoes, shared an open letter to the comedian on Twitter, commenting on his mental state of mind. The comedian has been in the news since his fallout with Sunil Grover last year. Kapil’s new show Family Time With Kapil is also reportedly going off-air after he cancelled shoots with various Bollywood celebrities. One factor which has led to this has been his phone call to an entertainment journalist where he hurled abuses at him, as well as his alleged alcoholism and depression.

Neeti and her sister, Preeti Simoes – creative director of Comedy Nights With Kapil and The Kapil Sharma Show – have been accused of being “responsible for driving Kapil into depression”. Neeti, in her open letter, writes that she wants to clear the air with Kapil and help him out during this trying time.

Kapil has also reportedly filed a police complaint against the Simoes sisters for extorting money from him. In her open letter, Neeti speaks about the accusations thrown their way, and the need to clear the air by talking face-to-face.

Kapil’s friend, Rajiev Dhingra, has reportedly told Mumbai Mirror that Preeti is the reason for Kapil’s depression. He also expressed fears that Kapil may harm himself.

“Preeti is responsible for driving Kapil into depression, she harassed me as well and tried to instigate him against me. As soon as she learnt that he was marrying his girlfriend Ginni (Chatrath), she vowed to destroy him and turn his friends against him. All the controversies in Kapil’s life happened only in the last one year after Preeti vowed to destroy him,” Rajiv told Mumbai Mirror.
