While Sunil Grover is going to town about his upcoming show which has him playing Chutki (a bit similar to Gutthi of Comedy Nights With Kapil), sources say that it’s not just his show as being projected. “Manish Paul is an important and integral part of the show. In fact, he is the one who is hosting it, while Sunil plays different characters, one of which is Chutki. There will also be other actors essaying different characters. And no, it’s not like Kapil’s show either. It is on the lines of Saturday Night With Jay Leno or closer home Movers & Shakers, which Shekhar Suman used to host,” says an insider.
Apparently, this is also the reason, the makers haven’t been able to decide on the title of the show.
Says a source, “Earlier, they wanted to call it The Sunil Grover Show but Manish is hosting it, so it couldn’t be named after Sunil. Then they came up with the idea of Manish Grover Show, but Sunil wasn’t happy because he claimed that the show was being hyped on his name. After all, it was his exit from Kapil’s show that created all the buzz!” Both Manish and Sunil were unavailable for comment.
At the time of going to print, the makers were on the verge of zeroing in on the title.
