MUMBAI: `Gutthi’ Sunil Grover, who left Comedy Nights With Kapil on Colors channel last week, may be hosting a show of his own on Star Plus.
Star Plus reportedly approached Krushna Abhishek to host its new comedy show, but he couldn’t agree as he is bound by contract with Sony Entertainment Channel.
Quoting a source, a report in the Times of India says, “The (Star Plus) show is on the lines of Kapil Sharma’s comedy show. The host will be required to interview celebrities. Krushna didn’t want to leave Comedy Circus mid-way and hence, declined the offer. Sunil (Gutthi) is almost confirmed on the show. It will be interesting to see how the two friends fare in their respective shows.”
The report says since Colors, the channel that airs Comedy Nights With Kapil, had poached Giaa Manek (the original Gopi Bahu of ‘Saath Nibhaana Saathiya’ on Star Plus) for their dance reality show Jhalak Dikhla Jaa, now Star Plus has hit back by poaching `Gutthi’ from Colors channel.
