Sunil Grover reveals why playing Guthi was easier than Dr. Mashoor Gulati, says 'female ke kapde pehen-pehen ke aadat ho gayi thi'


No one does it better than Sunil Grover when it comes to mimicry and comedy. The actor, who won millions of hearts with his characters Guthi and Dr. Mashoor Gulati on Comedy Nights With Kapil and The Kapil Sharma Show, has now talked about his characters. 

In an interview with an entertainment website, when Sunil was asked which character was more difficult to play out of Dr. Mashoor Gulati and Gutthi, he picked the former. “Mereko itne female ke kapde pehen-pehen ke aadat ho gayi thi ki mujhe easy lagne lag gaya tha. ‘Arre, ek sari toh hai, ek suit toh hai, ek minute mein pehen lunga…’ Aadmi banna mushkil lagta hai mujhe (I got so used to wearing women’s clothes that it became easy for me. I would think, ‘Oh, this is a sari, I will wear it in a minute.’ Playing a man became difficult),” he joked.

Sunil added that playing both characters were fun in their own way. He said that when the audience likes a character, it becomes easier to play the role but if a character goes unacknowledged, the difficulty level increases.

On the work front, Sunil was last seen in Amazon Prime Video's web show Tandav as Gurpal.
