Sunil Grover to make a comeback on ‘Comedy Nights…’, but not as Gutthi!
Sunil Grover to do a different role on ‘Comedy Nights…’?

Sunil Grover made Gutthi a household name, but post his exit from Comedy Nights With Kapil, the makers are not keen to have the comedian back in the same role.
That’s strange! As per sources, Sunil Grover is expected to make a comeback on the show, but he will not be playing the character of Gutthi. While talking to a tabloid, Priti Simoes the producer of the show has spilled the beans on Sunil Grover’s return to Comedy Nights….
According to Priti, the creative team, including she and Kapil Sharma are trying to figure out a suitable role for Sunil.
Gutthi was a very popular character on the show but right now with Palak and Dadi taking up the centre stage and becoming big, Gutthi's character won't work. Hence, it does not make sense for Sunil to return in the same role. Since he is very talented, he will get some other prominent role on the show, claims Priti.
For sure, it would be disheartening for some fans to not see Sunil Grover as Gutthi. The actor made an exit last year when his demand for a pay hike was denied by the makers of the show. Kapil Sharma too had confirmed the news and had said, “He wanted a rise in his payments, and I denied, this was the only reason that he left our show.”
After leaving ‘Comedy Nights…’, Sunil Grover started his own show Mad In India with Manish Paul as the host, but it couldn’t charm the audiences.
