Manish Paul and Sunil Grover launched their new comedy TV show Mad In India which will air on Star Plus from February 16. Sunil Grover became famous as Gutthi from Comedy Nights With Kapil.
“The show is my first TV outing of 2014. It has no particular format, no script. We are all trying to have fun and it will have everything that the audience likes as it is very important to keep them entertained. We might also have celebrities on board, but I can talk about that only once the show starts,” Manish said.
Manish, who has co-hosted with TV stars like Kapil Sharma, Ragini Khanna and Cyrus Sahukar, says he prefers hosting a show alone as it gives him an option to do whatever he can.
“It gives me open possibilities to do different things and try new things. Nevertheless, I enjoyed hosting ‘Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 6 with Kapil Sharma,” he said.
Comedian Sunil Grover, who rose to fame with his on-screen character “Gutthi”, never expected to become so famous. He will be seen as “Chutki” and wishes that this too catches on fast.
“I want it to be as popular and that the audience should be able to connect with it. I never thought that Gutthi will become as big as it did,” Sunil said.
Sunil’s exit from Comedy Nights With Kapil sparked off many rumours, however the actor did not want to “dwell in the past”. He further added that the character was a hit due to many factors.
The show, which will be hosted by Manish Paul, will also include Dolly Ahluwalia and Siddharth Jadhav.
