Actor-comedian Sunil Grover’s show Kanpur Wale Khuranas is set to go off air after an eight-week run. However, he says that TRPs aren’t to be blamed. In an interview with Pinkvilla, Sunil clarified that the show was meant to be a mini series since he could only spare a month from his schedule while shooting for Salman Khan-starrer Bharat.
“It is because of me. I had signed the show for 8 weeks only because my dates were locked for Bharat, the movie. I had made this clear even during the press conference and interviews that I could only accommodate this much time. I am kickstarting the last leg of shoot for Bharat from today, and I just want to thank the team who made this show happen including the channel and the guests who accommodated dates because of my schedule,” he said.
Sunil mentioned that the eight-week-long series was shot in a month owing to his commitments for Bharat. “ I was missing television and hence I took up this show in between, when I had the month gap,” he said.
The actor-comedian was last seen on the small screen on The Kapil Sharma Show which he quit in March 2017.
When asked whether the constant comparisons between The Kapil Sharma Show and Kanpur Wale Kuranas bothered him, Sunil said, “Let them compare. I am doing what I know. I enjoyed doing the show. I love humour as a genre. It was a great journey for, day and night we were working on funny one liners, developing a character, working as a team. Making two episodes a day is not easy, no one can do it in this genre, lining up artists and more. If you look at it, it was quite unachievable what this team has been able to achieve.”
