After all the hype and hoopla over the feminine character he made famous in Comedy Nights with Kapil, Mr Grover is finally ready to be rechristened onscreen
Kapil Sharma and former Comedy Nights with Kapil comedian Sunil Grover parted ways on a bad note and what followed was an ugly war of words. The duo’s bone of contention was the popular character from the show – Gutthi! With Sunil claiming that neither Kapil nor the makers of CNWK had any rights to the character he essayed, Viacom 18 issued a legal notice to the contrary and things took another acrimonious turn. While Sunil’s replacement is yet to be found, there have been rumours doing the rounds about how this popular character was offered to Navin Prabhakar and Raju Srivastava. In fact, when Gaurav Gera entered as another ‘lady’ in a special guest appearance on Comedy Nights, people wondered if Mrs Pammi Pyarelal (his name on a now-defunct show) was the new Gutthi. It turned out that Pammiji played a brief role as Dulhari and made her exit.
With the battle still on and Grover’s plans of The Gutthi Show on the backburner, fans of the character can now see Sunil in a brand new avatar as Kunwari on the reality show Boogie Woogie. What’s in a name, after all! We certainly are looking forward to Gutthi urf Kunwari’s next act. What say, BollywoodLifers?
