Sunil Grover, who most people recognise as Gutthi on the hit TV talk show Comedy Nights with Kapil, will be seen in a similar avatar as Chutki on his very own show Mad in India which will be broadcast on Star Plus in February. He was spotted promoting the character – in full costume, of course – in New Delhi, India on January 29, 2014.

Gutthi was a very popular character on Comedy Nights but creative differences prompted Sunil to part ways from the show, a decision that sent Gutthi fans into mourning. But now Sunil is all set to do his very own show which will in which he portrays small-town Chutki who wears cheap perfume, colourful sun glasses and tacky salwar kameezes complemented by pigtails.

Chutki does appear to be very like Gutthi, but the producers and Sunil insist that both characters have different identities. They’ll definitely have to try very hard to ensure that Chutki doesn’t seem like just a continuation of Gutthi because the Colors channel, on which Comedy Nights airs, has copyrighted the latter.

Sunil says he knows that his show will be compared to Kapil’s and admitted that the thought makes him anxious. He said he didn’t want to compete with anyone and just wanted to do his show purely for entertainment.
