Sunil Grover has been laughing at people on television for years. He has also influenced people with his role in odd series such as web series ‘Tandava’, or Akshay Kumar starrer film ‘Gabbar is Back’. In recent years, the arrival of social media has been a boon for new age talents and Sunil has also benefited from this platform.
He said, “You have to see so much that a lot of talent has come out due to social media. Everyone has found a platform to express themselves and can see whatever they want. “
Sunil said that if we talk about the story of the arrival of social media and OTT, then this change has happened in a few years. From theater to films, from social media to OTT, the audience has now proved that they can easily adopt everything.
He said, “Change is inevitable. When films started coming in, people felt that the audience of the plays might be affected, but the theater continues. Eventually, social media arrived and now we have OTT. Over time, people become growth friendly ”
For them, as an artist, different types of platforms mean a better chance to experiment, which in turn presents new challenges.
Sunil will soon be seen in the upcoming comedy show ‘Hansi To Phanke’, where 10 comedians will be locked in a house trying to make each other laugh. It is a challenge for him not to laugh and till the last contestant who will be laughing, he will win the show.
Regarding the show, Sunil said, “The format of the show is different and it has a mental system that I had never thought of before.”
