Colors TV trying to protect Gutthi as intellectual property

gutthi TV actor Sunil Grover might not be part of the popular TV show ‘Comedy Nights With Kapil’ anymore, but the character of Gutthi has become immensely popular among the audience. With this in mind, producers of the show have issued a warning that those who attempt to imitate or launch a character similar to that of Gutthi will be taken to court.


The latest move has been made by the producers of the show out of fear that the actor might come up with a similar show which would be aired on a rival channel. Grover was once part of the show and played the role of Gutthi and has become a huge hit among the audience. There were rumors that Sunil had an idea to create a new show, after leaving ‘Comedy Nights With Kapil’.

On November 20, 2013, Viacom 18 issued a notice in a daily that the character of Gutthi is their intellectual property and that it cannot be adopted for any other program. For every celebrity episode, Sunil came up dressed in different get-ups and entertained guests, as well as the audience.

When Ranbir Kapoor was on the show, Grover appeared as a bride who left her wedding with an intention to marry the ‘Besharam’ actor. Moreover, when Hrithik Roshan came on the show, Gutthi came as a coy super-girl who flirted with the actor.
