The stand-up comedian will be seen in a different avatar in the upcoming episode of Mad In India
Tired of comedy shows encashing in on cross-dressing antics? Sunil Grover has decided to go easy on the gender benders, and on his show Mad In India. So will he say goodbye to his popular female avatar Chutki, like he did to Gutthi? Well, not really. We hear that the funny man will now play two roles – Chutki and a brand new avatar as a boy named Sabjee.
According to a source, “The idea is to expand the bandwidth of the humour from gender differences to a more broad-based appeal. It is hoped that Grover’s kid-avatar Sabjee would become as popular as Grover’s female avatars.”
As you will know, Mad In India didn’t garner the TRPs it was hoping for and hence the makers of the show are on a damage control spree. They have roped in cricketer Harbhajan Singh for a tete-a-tete with Grover, who will appear before the cricketer as a child eager to learn the ropes of the game.
“The producers wanted Grover to come on the show as Chutki to interview Harbhajan Singh. But Grover doesn’t want to make the cross-dressing the show’s talking point. Hence, the child,” said the source.
