After the much-publicized mid-air fight with his friend and co-star Kapil Sharma, which compelled him to leave Sony Entertainment Television’s flagship show The Kapil Sharma Show, everyone has been waiting for the next move of ace comedian, Sunil Grover.
Initially, the news was doing the rounds that the channel had offered him a new comedy show. But months have passed since then and now it seems the unconfirmed news was just a rumour. But if latest reports are anything to go by, the popular comedian is indeed making a comeback, but on a rival channel.
According to reports, Sunil is in talks with the makers of the forthcoming comedy show The Great Indian Laughter Challenge. If things fall into place, the comedian will host the show which is being judged by the versatile actor, Akshay Kumar. The show, reportedly, has an impressive lineup of comedian mentors like Zakir Khan, Mallika Dua and Hussain Dalal.
Reports also suggest that the makers had initially roped in Elli Avram as a host, but then they had a second thought and decided to approach Sunil. An official announcement is expected to come out very soon.
The Great Indian Laughter Challenge will go on air on Star Plus.
