Comedian-turned-actor, Sunil Grover came back to Indian Television with his own TV show named as Kanpur Wale Khuranas on 13th December 2018, after his last appearance in the Kapil Sharma Show in March 2017, after which he has been very busy doing some stage shows. There are some other great comedians in his team including Ali Sagar, Sugandha Mishra, Upasana Singh, Farah Khan and Aparshakti Khurana with Sunil Grover. The show started with inviting the team of Simmba as their first guest. Some rumors say that Sunil’s comeback show is to go off air soon.
Before you beat the gun and guess the reasons, we have the reason behind the show going off air. Sunil Grover has taken this one as a mini-series as he also had to resume his shooting for Salman Khan starrer ‘Bharat’. In an interview with Pinkvilla, Sunil shared the real reason behind the show going off air. He 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.”

He has started shooting for his new upcoming film ‘Bharat’ from 10th January 2019 I.e. Thursday and posted a photo on Twitter and wrote,
“Resuming at @Bharat_TheFilm today. Next 40 days going to be fun, looking forward. This is the grass where @beingSalmanKhan would be walking on, in next 10 mins.”
He also showed his gratitude towards the beautiful and cooperating team of his show. He said,
“I am kick-starting 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.”
Later in the Interview, Sunil also unveiled how much he miss TV and so he tried to squeeze in the eight weeks schedule of the show and was ready to even shot for it in just a month, before starting to shoot for his movie again. He confessed,
“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 eight-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.”
The comedian, who tried his hand on acting through many different films like; Ghajini, Gabbar, Patakha, Baaghi, etc has considerably roped a major role in the upcoming project of Salman Khan, ‘Bharat’. if reports are to be trusted, Sunil has got the role of Salman’s friend in the film and this role is a bit different from the normal comedic role seen in most of the Bollywood films. Some reports suggest that the belly queen Nora Fatehi will romance with Sunil Grover in the film. The movie is set to release on Eid next year.
