What is Shilpa Shetty doing in Mad in India?

The popular actor-producer continues her association with Star Plus

After Nach Baliye, Shilpa Shetty Kundra is being roped in to be a special guest on Sunil Grover’s Mad in India.

The newly launched comedy show on Star Plus has been receiving flak ever since the first episode, featuring Baba Ramdev went on air. Apparently, people claimed that there was very little of Sunil Grover to be seen on the show as Chutki, and we agree. While Manish Paul managed to do his best as the comic host, it was Sunil who disappointed the audience.

The show which promised to not focus on Bollywood too much has invited Karisma Kapoor and Govinda for the second episode. And Shilpa Shetty has been requested to be the special guest in the third week of the show. “Yes, it’s true Shilpa Shetty is our third guest on the show,” said producer Rajeshwar Nair. Guess, in order to get numbers, the makers can forget their initial plan, right. Shilpa will be seen discussing movies, makeup, beauty and cricket tips with Chutki.

According to the rumour mills, the makers are planning to change the format of the show by giving Grover more footage. Since the show is touted as Sunil’s show, it would only make sense to see more of the actor. Hence the star interaction will be reduced and Chutki (Sunil Grover) will get more screen timing. When queried about the same to the producer, he said, “I’d really not like to comment anything on that just yet, please.” Well, we understand and hope the new strategy works in the favour of the show. Fingers crossed!
