Laughter too comes at a price. The makers of "The Great Indian Laughter Challenge" learnt this recently when winner of the first season of the contest, Sunil Pal, demanded a hike.
Season 2 and 3 have, thereafter, thrown up quite a few genuine talents in the field, and the management is reluctant about the raise as it feels that the present contestants are a good match for Sunil's wisecracks.
"I have some demands and if they agree to it I will perform for them. However, I will always be with them whenever they need me. I may not be with them professionally, but I will be with them personally," is what Sunil had to say about the tug-of-war.
A close source reveals that Sunil has grown insecure about many other contestants of the second and third seasons of the show as they are better than him. Now, since the management is not ready to budge, Sunil is finishing off a lot of personal work pending since the time he started doing "The Great Indian Laughter Challenge". He will be soon seen in "Ho Jayegi Balle Balle" and "Bombay to Goa-2".
