Sunil Grover to Play Male Lead in Vishal Bhardwaj’s ‘Chhuriyaan’

Television host Sunil Grover, best known for his on-screen persona of Gutthi (Comedy Nights With Kapil) has been in the news for his differences with Kapil Sharma. Moving ahead, wider horizons await the popular comedian. Mumbai Mirror reports that he is set to appear as the male lead in the National Award winning filmmaker Vishal Bhardwaj’s upcoming female-centric comedy-drama, Chhuriyaan.

Dangal actress Sanya Malhotra and Radhika Madan of Mere Aashiqui Tumse are set to play the part of sisters sparring with each other.

"“I am very happy to have Sunil Grover and Vijay Raaz as the two unconventional male leads of my film. Sunil plays a crucial and major part and I was surprised to know what a big star he is...He is a wonderful actor and person. I have noticed that everyone is eager to interact with him and now I am eager to shoot a great part with him too...All the actors are already learning a beautiful Rajasthani dialect for their roles. Since the narrative has a lot of scope for music, I am working on a five/six song album, packed with folklore and Rajasthani flavour. There will also be a very interesting dance number that I am looking forward to film..”" - Vishal Bhardwaj told Mumbai Mirror

A discovery of the late satirist Jaspal Bhatti, Grover made his Bollywood debut in the Ajay Devgn-Kajol-starrer Pyar Toh Hona Hi Tha. The film is set to go on floors in the village of Raunsi by the end of the month.
