Sunil Grover and Kapil Sharma are amongst the best comedians India has ever had. While Kapil Sharma gained popularity after winning Comedy Circus, Sunil Grover gained popularity very recently after portraying the character of Gutthi in Kapil’s show ‘Comedy Nights with Kapil’.
But with Sunil’s recent exit from the show, all is not well between the two. Though both have always denied that they have fallen apart according to some reports, Gutthi’s popularity apparently made Kapil insecure which resulted in Sunil being ousted from the show. Now Sunil will be seen in a new show called ‘Mad in India’ on the rival channel Star Plus.
Sunil Grover has been a part of the industry for over a decade now. Some of his previous shows include Hans Baliye and Gutur Gu, but it was the character of Gutthi which made him immensely popular among the masses. He has over 11,21,008 fans on Facebook. Sunil secured a special place in everyone’s hearts after depicting the feminine traits in a delicate & exaggerated way.
Kapil Sharma started his career from a Punjabi channel mh1’s show ‘Hasde Hasounde Raho’ and later went on to do shows like Comedy Circus, Hans Baliye and Chhote Miyaan and finally ‘Comedy Nights with Kapil’ which went on to become India’s highest rated serial in the non-fiction category garnering viewership rating greater than KBC and Big Boss. Kapil is known for his amazing comic timing and wit.
But amongst Sunil and Kapil who is a better comedian?
After Sunil’s exit from Comedy Nights, the popularity of the show has been greatly affected. People from all over India are demanding his return on the show with petitions being signed on Facebook for the same. However, recently when Kapil hosted the ITA Awards and Grover hosted the Zee Rishtey Awards, Kapil’s performance was appreciated more than that of Grover’s. Hence it is very difficult to say who is better than the other but one thing is certain that,we love them both. Although we are eager to see what happens next!!
