Mumbai, April 4 IANS | 4 months ago

Kapil Sharma, who is riding high on the success of his "Comedy Nights With Kapil" show, says if actor Sunil Grover decides to return, he will welcome him.


Sunil made it big as Gutthi on "Comedy Nights With Kapil", but quit the show and started his own "Mad In India" programme, in which he is seen as Chutki.

"If he wishes to come, then he is most welcome. I never wanted him to go either, but it was his own decision," Kapil told reporters here at an event organised to unveil comedian Sunil Pal's video "Vote For Sunil Pal", Thursday.

"Every person has a right to think about his own growth. Even I left a show to start my own. So if I can do, why not him! He has all the right to do that," he added.

Kapil further says he has never seen Sunil as a competitor and that a show's success depends on the entire team and not just one person.

"I have never seen him as a competitor as we have different time slots. Sunil is a very good actor, so wherever he will go, he will do good. But sometimes it happens that an actor is very good, but there are other things as well that makes a show successful."

"I would not say that 'Comedy Nights' is doing good only because of me, it depends on the whole team and I would say everything works in favour of you only by god's grace. My best wishes are with him," said Kapil who has recently shot an episode with Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan.

Sunil's "Mad In India" went on air in January this year on Star Plus, while "Comedy Nights With Kapil" started in June last year on Colors.

"Mad In India" is however, not generating enough TRPS despite celebrities like Govinda, Karisma Kapoor, yoga guru Baba Ramdev's appearance on the show.
