One of India’s most loved comedian Sunil Grover is visiting Canada and he will be performing at the Orpheum Theatre as part of the Dr. Mashoor Gulati Comedy Clinic show.
Grover is on a six-city Canadian tour. While on his way to Edmonton, he talked to Desi Today about his upcoming show. Sunil said that he loved performing amongst Canadian audience and was all geared up for the show to entertain Vancouver. “I am looking forward to see everyone.”
Sunil will be performing with two more actors. But most will be alone and will be entertaining the audience in his different avatars as Gutthi, Rinku Bhabhi and Dr Mashoor Gulati.
When asked about his famous “Gutthi” character and how he got to do it, he said, “Gutthi is all the girls I have seen around me. I come from Mandi Dabwali, a small town in Haryana. Most of the girls were like Gutthi. I really used to observe and admire girls who were sharp and shy at the same time. That is how Gutthi was discovered. I played it once in a show and people really loved it.”
Sunil was born in a Punjabi family. His father was a manager in a Bank. He completed his schooling from Mandi Dabwali and completed the graduation from Guru Nanak College. He did masters degree in Theatre from Panjab University Chandigarh.
He was interested in acting from his childhood. “I wanted to be an actor since childhood, but never shared with anyone for a long time because people used to make fun. But I started performing in school and college and eventually, my parents and my friends started supporting me.”
Snil was discovered during his college days by the late satirist Jaspal Bhatti. He has also acted in India’s first silent comedy show, SAB TV’s Gutur Gu in the initial 26 episodes.
But his talent was widely noticed when he became part of Comedy Nights with Kapil and later The Kapil Sharma Show. He came on his own after the much talked about spat with Kapil Sharma.
Recently Kapil Sharma opened up on the alleged, infamous spat with Sunil and claimed there was actually no fight between the two. He was speaking at the trailer launch of his upcoming film, Firangi.
When asked about Kapil’s statement, Sunil said, “He (Kapil) took some time to talk about this so I also need some time to respond. Meanwhile, I wish him good luck for his film.”
And we wish Sunil for his upcoming show!
