Kanpur Wale Khuranas is going off air
In his latest interview with Pinkvilla, Sunil said, “It is because of me. I had signed the show for eight 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 the 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”.
“Many stars came earlier then they started promotions because I had limited days. It is a month and a half schedule for Bharat, hence we shot the 8 weeks show in the span of one month. I was missing television and hence I took up this show in between, when I had the month gap.” he added.
When asked him about constant trolling that has been happening ever since the show premiered. To this, Grover stated, “90% of them are with fake ids, 70-80% of them don’t have their own profile picture and are nameless, these are the ones who troll. So, it doesn’t bother me. How can these fake people and world bother me? It is a part and parcel of work. If there are a few who did not like the show, there are also people who loved it. Why should these fake, nameless people who troll and abuse me affect me? It is their headache.”
Sunil also explained he doesn’t ‘care’ about the show’s comparison with Kapil Sharma’s show. He 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”.
“Whatever I am, it is because of television. I love it as medium. Everyday you get to connect with the audience and get to entertain them. This is something which I really enjoy, so why not?” he concluded.
