Sunil Grover aka Gutthi to quit 'Comedy Nights with Kapil' to host his own show?

Agencies | November 13, 2013, 22.11 pm IST
Mumbai, Nov 12: Popular actor-comedian Sunil Grover, who essays the funny Punjabi girl 'Gutthi' in 'Comedy Nights with Kapil' is bidding adieu to the hit TV show.
There are plenty of rumours doing the rounds, speculating on the reasons for Gutthi's decision. Some say that Sunil 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.
There are also rumours that Sunil is interested in starting and hosting his show, and that it will be aired on a rival channel.
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.
"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.
Producer Kapil Sharma could not be reached for comments.

Gutthi aka Grover is a great actor.... Obviously he will be missed by all... But sometimes people have other things they want to do... I really dont think he is leaving or money reason inbetween the season. Grover is a respectable entertainer he would not ask for more inbetween his contract as he can get sued. He is a very good actor I hope to see him on the show but.... They will replace him with another actor who is dying to be on the show. thats all thats gonna happen. People get replaced when there is an issue or a conflict. Secondly he Grover got a better position else where its better for him. All the best to Gutthhi aka Grover ... You will be missed if you Leave!!!!

yup... grover was another 40% of the show ... if Kapil, Azgar were 60%. I think comedy circus was also of the same fate as with comedy nights with kapil. It is all ego clashes. Life is simple not so complex... making a successful show look foolish at the end of the day

how can u say he is been paid low,do you know that these actors earn minimum a lakh per show. and BTW, it was kapil's idea of creating ghutti.

One of the main reasons for watching this show was Gutthi. This will seriously effect the TRPs. The ajow will lose its popularity. Such a shame!

People wait for Gutthi's entry...instead of taking stupid questions from audience and bringing characters on should increase gutthi's part and gutthi is only one who never does over !! Not only as gutthi Sunil acts outstandingly well in every character .... dadi , bua , etc all do same thing everytime only sunil does different roles ... he is a true entertainer and he is senior to kapil ... kapil should respect him and channel should pay what he deserves...the show will be handicapped without Gutthi !!

Sunil is so entertaining unlike Kapil who keeps on criticizing everyone. Though he is funny he is sometimes offensive to the public.

really its a loss for the show.. gutthi is a real entertainer.. i watch just because of gutthi , palak, dadi and bua otherwise this show is nothing rather then insulting of audience who ask questions.. these people comes in the show to make it popular..

If Gutthi (sunil grover) is so famous today, it is only due to "comedy nights with kapil". Without this show gutthi won't be liked by the people as he was liked in kapil's show. So gutthi should give a thought to his decision before leaving the show.

Guthi I missed you in the last show. Didn't think you're not returning. This is sad news. Sunil Grover is super-talented and funny in every character. I will miss him. Hope he comes back to the show.

people rarely understand.. guthi only came into light just becasue of comedy nights with kapil.. using show as platform > gaining popularity and then leaving because u wanna make everyone feel that ur better is just lame.. i can promise you let guthi create his own show.. it wont be watched over a month.. kapil sharma is backbone of comedy.. its just sad that ppl have taken him for guaranteed and whinning abt guthi

Sunil Grover is a very talented guy and kapil is famous for his witty and lively comments on the set. It will be good for both and for the audience and public who watch the show that the show should go on for atleast some more weeks without any changes in the cast.

Let Gutthi go off..... Kapil is the comedy king and he will remain so.. Sunil Grover aka Gutthi was not this much popular as has become because of the show. Instead of being the guidance and support to Kapil and team he wanted to earn from what Kapil made him? Shame on Mr. Grover...... This way you will never prove to be a success. All the very best to Kapil..... Comedy nights has to see more heights...... BEST WISHES KAPIL JI.....

Sunil Grover (gutthi) is far talented than Kapil. He should not waste his talent under the shadow of Kapil. It is a good decision by him to host another show. Kapil is just insulting to audience and he does not even allow the guest celebrities to speak more. Best wishes to Sunil Grover

Whatever..... if they wanna replace gutthi with some other character ... from my point of view it will never give that flavor that Sunil use to deliver... i mean say its same as if u need onion in salad ...& i give you carrot against that ., will u get same taste?? of-course not !! .. Sunil's timing, way of pitching, expressions added life to "Guthi" character. So my advice would be you producers & makers of the show should compromise lil bit with Sunil's demand & continue show with him.

Sunny Deol's episode without Guthi was one of the best in recent times. Guys Guthi got famous coz of Comedy Nights. CNWK was already famous without her. And its not really about money. Kapil and Colors can't control everything. Its the decision of an individual to do whatever he wants once his contract expires. People rarely knew Mr. Grover before Comedy Nights. Stop criticizing Kapil and please use some logic. Guthi was anyways a bit of over acting.

first- kapil need to understand the show is not b'use of him, he need to respect the audience,accepted it's commedy show, but don't take it granted, their r lot many who behave like this and they received their fruits for that. gutthi is unique charater and it's the artist who make the charater live, not the show or kapil. Last -don't like the boaring sidhhu

Its like Kapil sharma leaving comedy circus and starting his own show. These people will continue to entertain us being in CNWK or any other comedy program. I am with Sunil as his performance is always overshadowed by kapils disrespectful comments. It’s the same with Sumona (Kapils wife), we will not be surprised if we hear one day that sumona has left CNWK.
