They are hands down one of the most popular characters on India’s favourite show, Comedy Nights With Kapil, so post Gutthi’s departure, the show felt a little incomplete – you know like a rainbow with just six colours: pretty, but incomplete. So it was a sight to see when the audience roared with happiness when Gutthi (enacted by Sunil Grover) set foot on stage with her sister, Palak (enacted by Kiku Sharma). As Gutthi made an entry with a suitcase in her hand, she informed everybody that she has just returned from America and a very funny and self depreciating exchange with Kapil Sharma ensued, much to the delight of the show watchers!
A source confided about the electric atmosphere on the sets of the show, “It was as though Miss World stepped on to the stage. When Gutthi walked in, the audience was out of control! Their reaction was completely incredible – with applause, whistles, hoots and all. What’s more the audience went ballistic when Gutthi sang her trademark song Phool Khile Hai Gulshan Gulshan… It was an atmosphere of pure celebration!”
Kiku Sharma aka Palak said, “Working with Sunil has always been a pleasure. Even before we worked together on Comedy Nights With Kapil as Palak and Gutthi, Sunil was and continues to remain a dear friend. He is a powerhouse of talent and I am now looking forward to some fun days with him.”
Sunil Grover, too, was ecstatic to return to the show that made him a household name, “Ever since I made an appearance on Comedy Nights With Kapil, people had been asking me when Gutthi would be making a comeback. It eventually made me feel that Gutthi had become my alter ego. When I entered the sets as Gutthi, the crowd went crazy applauding and shouting out Gutthi’s name; and this went on for at least two whole minutes! It was an emotional moment for me and I found it difficult to switch back to my character but I eventually pulled myself together and let my humourous persona take over!”
We too are overjoyed to see Gutthi back at what she (he) does best along with the super fun Palak! Keep the laughs coming, kind sirs. :)
