With disappointing response after the first episode, the makers of Mad In India, including Sunil Grover have immersed themselves in some serious damage control. The show which very obviously was made to compete with Kapil Sharma's Comedy Nights With Kapil, got lost at finding its own identity. Apparently, the makers made a critical error in judgment when it came to deciding how strong a presence Sunil Grover should have in Mad In India.
A leading website quoted a source as saying, "The show was marketed and promoted as Sunil Grover's vehicle. But in the edited aired material a lot of Sunil Grover's 'Chutki' material was gone."
When there is such issues, the blame game takes the front seat, the same happened here too. A source was quoted saying, "Grover ki bhi galti hai. He didn't want to be the protagonist of the show. He wanted it to be an ensemble comedy show so he could share the platform with his colleagues. The show was split into two halves, a celebrity chat and the comic skits." And now the skits would be increased to spotlight Grover's presence on the show.
Tellychakkar quoted Sunil Grover as saying, "But that also has to do with the heightened expectancy level. People expected too much from us. And yes I deliberately decided to downplay my presence on the show. That was a mistake. Because we advertised the show as my show. We've already shot Episode 2 with Govinda and Karisma. The changes will be apparent from the third episode."
Now since the second episode is already been shot, one with Govinda and Karisma Kapoor, the third episode will have the changes that they will decide upon. Well, let's hope Sunil Grover and the makers of the show would figure things out soon before too much damage is done to the show.
