|The exit of Gutthi aka Sunil Grover may not have had a big impact on the popularity of ‘Comedy Night With Kapil’, but the actor was duly missed by everyone. If host Kapil Sharma is the captain, Sunil Grover as Gutthi was indeed the X-factor of the show.
Now, as the actor makes his re-entry on the show, here is his first look. Sunil has already shot for his first comeback episode. The makers don’t want to introduce him as Gutthi again, so he will be seen as the nutty father of Kapil’s wife, played by Sumona Chakravarthy.

Earlier too, Sunil has played this character, but this version is a bit different. The actor will be seen doing crazy things like keeping his torn slippers in his bag. However, he won’t be merely restricted to being Bittoo Sharma’s father-in-law, sources claim that the actor will be seen enacting other characters as well. Something he used to do at the beginning of the show before becoming famous as Gutthi.
Why is Gutthi’s character being abandoned? According to Priti Simoes, the producer of the show, “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.”
Either as Bittoo Sharma’s father-in-law or some other character, Sunil Grover is sure to excel. It remains to be seen how audiences, who loved him as Gutthi, react to his comeback in a different role.
