Popular actor-comedian Sunil Grover,who essays the funny Punjabi girl ‘Gutthi’ in ‘Comedy Nights with Kapil’ is likely to bid adieu to the hit TV show.
The show,aired on Colors has become immensely popular thanks to producer-anchor Kapil Sharma’s comic timing and rib-tickling combination of characters like Daadi,Bua,Palak and Gutthi aka Grover.
Gutthi’s antics and songs have always left the audiences and the guests in split. But rumours say that Grover,the man behind ‘Gutthi’ has quit the show.
“He is happy that his character of Gutthi was accepted and loved so much by the audience. He (Sunil Grover) won’t be part of the show due to prior commitments. It is less likely that he would return to the show,” sources close to the development told PTI.
Apparently,Sunil Grover demanded a raise in his pay package for the show which was not acceptable by the makers and hence he decided to walk out of it. However,sources denied such talks.
Producer Kapil Sharma could not be reached for comments.
