Stand-up comedian Sunil Grover, famous for essaying Gutthi on the small screen's comedy show, Comedy Nights With Kapil, will be seen in Bollywood movie Gabbar Is Back. He hopes it opens the doors of the cinema world for him.
"I consider this film as a turning point in my career, and I hope this project is my gateway to films. I'm extremely nervous and looking forward to this film," Sunil told.
Gabbar Is Back is directed by Krish and co-produced by Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Viacom 18 Motion Pictures. Featuring Akshay Kumar and Shruti Haasan in lead roles, the film is slated to release on May 1.
A remake of the 2002 Tamil film Ramanaa, Gabbar Is Back will see Akshay in the role of a vigilante, a righteous man and an enemy of the corrupt.
Describing his role in the film, Sunil said: "I am playing a policeman in this film and it's not a negative role. When I was offered this role, I instantly said 'yes' to this film."
Sunil Grover's character in Comedy Nights With Kapil, Gutthi has been one of the most popular roles on small screen. Though he left the show for a little while for his own show in Star Plus, the talented artist had to return to Kapil Sharma's show when it shut shop.
