Looks like Comedy Nights With Kapil‘s Gutthi is losing friends in the entertainment industry
When Sunil Grover walked out of Kapil Sharma’s hit show Comedy Nights With Kapil, there was a war of words between the two. Soon Sunil found an accomplice in television host turned Bollywood actor Manish Paul who joined him as the host of Mad In India, but looks like all’s not well between the two. It seems that the duo is fighting over the show’s format.
While Sunil Grover is happy adding the comic tadka, Paul wants to separate his interview from all the fluff. Manish wants to build this show on the lines of Jay Leno, while the channel feels that the dipping TRPs is a resul of too much talking and less action.
A report even suggests that Manish’s walk out is just a facade and that the Mickey Virus actor cannot quit the show as he is bound by the contract, “He can’t walk out. Koi mazaaq hai kya? He is under contract with the channel. If he leaves he will be taken to court. All these reports of Manish quitting the show are arm-twisting tactics.”
The buzz is also that Sunil if kept away from the show’s scripting, this despite the fact that he is willing to contribute. A source told a popular television site, “Grover is not too happy with the content. He would like the show to lighten up and not take itself too seriously. As for the Manish Paul factor, Grover doesn’t interfere at all. But the channel is going to take a call on how and where to fit in Paul.”
Well, this whole episode is giving us a déjà vu feeling, reminds us of the time when Gutthi quit CNWK, hai na?
