Chandan got married to Nandani Khanna in April, 2015 and this is the couple’s first child.
While Chandan is elated to bits, controversy looms large on The Kapil Sharma Show.
For those who have come in late, Kapil Sharma beat up Sunil Grover on an Air India flight to Mumbai. They were on a tour to Australia and were returning to the city after performing overseas.
The main reason for the fight was Chandan Prabhakar, the Chaiwallah of The Kapil Sharma Show. He got into an argument of sorts with Kapil back-stage in Sydney, which was their first halt on the Australian tour.
Chandan did not like the way Kapil spoke to him and retaliated by saying, “Tu hoga Kapil Sharma, but you can’t speak to me like this.” Kapil shot back, “Thappad marunga tujhe”!
Things got worse on the flight when Kapil (who was highly drunk) lost his cool and started abusing Chandan. That’s when Sunil intervened to handle Kapil and the rest is now history.
