Rumour has it that our very own Dr Gulati, aka Sunil Grover has finally bagged a television show. If reports are to be believed, Sunil is apparently replacing Elli Avram on an upcoming TV show – The Great Indian Laughter Challenge. According to a report in Times Of India, a source close to the production house revealed, A source from production said, “It’s a laughter show and we have had screen test and rehearsals with our mentors and host Elli. We now feel she doesn’t fit the bill and isn’t able to pull off Hindi as required for the show. We’re now in talks with Sunil Grover and working on dates. If all goes well, we will have him as the host.”
For now the makers have finalised Ellie Avram as the host but since the shoe has got everything to do with comedy, they are now having second thoughts about Elli. And if there is someone from the world of comedy who is a madman himself, it has gotta be Sunil Grover.
