[To set reminder and check TV schedule of Mad In India click here......]

‘Mad In India’ is getting bigger and better, especially in terms of raking in moolah with news. Right from the start when Gutthi was heard of doing the project, to the new entrant in the league of comedy celeb chat shows, the show has already generated quite a media hype around its debut launch, which is all slated for 16th February.

However, while much has been talked and said about the show, the list of celebs being invited on the couch are also getting quite a lot of mileage. With Sachin Tendulkar in the news off late to the now confirmed Ram Dev Baba, celeb guests in terms of variety are causing a lot of news on the show.

The latest to join in the news list with ‘Mad In India’ celeb guests are the hottest couple of 90’s, our very own Chi Chi and Lolo, aka Govinda and Karisma, who are set to make a stage appearance with MII, in the coming weekend.

Mad In India

The hot shot duo, which charted huge blockbusters like ‘Hero No. 1’, ‘Saajan Chale Sasural’, ‘Coolie No.1,’ and many more, are all set to be a team on the sets of Mad In India, opposite Sunil Grover, now in the role of ‘Chutki’. The show, will be presented by Manish Paul, the cute young host from ‘Jhalak Dikhla Jaa’ fame.

The episode with both the celebs has already been shot and it was a wonderful experience for Manish Paul. The host was heard quoting that interviewing them was fabulous as he had grown up dancing on their songs. In fact, he added that Govinda had been a great sport, who danced on his request as did Karisma Kapoor. The actress was heard to shake a leg on her one time hit song ‘Sona Kitna Sona Hai’ from Hero No. 1.

This episode will be roller coaster ride as there is no other celeb couple, which is known for masala, comedy and super-duper entertainment. The audience will be glad to catch a glimpse of their comedy no.1 couple on a comedy chat show, which spells fun, courtesy Gutthi aka Chutki.

Sunil Grover’s character ‘Chutki’ is a flirty, social network addict, hailing from a fictional city Bharatnagar. Chutki will also have Dolly Ahluwalia as her crime partner, who will be named in here as ‘Mango Dolly’. Shweta Tiwari, who was seen in ‘Comedy nights With Kapil’ earlier has decided to go with Sunil Grover and will be seen as ‘Katrina Mishra’.

Other comedians like Khayali, Sidddharth Jadhav, Rehman Khan, Rajbir Kaur, Paritosh Tripathi etc. will also be seen as the script flows in the show.

Now getting back to Lolo and Chi Chi, it was Govinda who spelled his excitement about coming on stage with Karsima. He said that his once upon a time co-star was a great artiste and through professional. He had met her last in Kolkata airport, some few years ago, but felt that now with growing age and passing experience, she has grown more mature and more beautiful.

Watch him and Lolo dance with Manish on the next weekend, when Chi Chi will once again entertain the audience with his song ‘What is mobile number?’ If all this and more candid chat with your favorite couple is making you already restless, then fret not. In a few days time, they will be here to add a lot of fun into your life.

However, stay tuned to know more about the other celeb guest, who dons the hot seat with the show’s debut launch this weekend. Stay tuned to unravel the debut show of the already much hyped ‘Mad In India’ with Sunil Grover and his celeb guest this Sunday, 23rd Feb, 2014, as it makes its grand entry only on Star Plus.

Star Plus’ Mad In India doesn’t have the madness!


[To set reminder and check TV schedule of Mad In India click here......]

Kapil Sharma or his K9 productions doesn’t have much to worry about, especially if the concerns are around the success of its new competitor’s arrival, ‘Mad In India’, on Star Plus. The show, although, garnered a huge popularity due to Sunil Grover aka Gutthi’s entry as ‘Chutki’ on the show, yet the concept wasn’t that interesting as compared to the former’s show on Colors.

The show had very little of what Kapil Sharma’s ‘Comedy Nights’ has! Right from the missing satire or comic streak in its host, Manish Paul, the range of comedians, who made a beeline entry into the stage every now and then, to the entire script, everything seemed to lack luster and comic timing.

Mad in India

The show cannot be even remotely said to be hilarious, forget about being entertaining. It was more of a ‘slapstick’ comedy show or a satire program, which was trying desperately to get on to the audience, with some forceful ‘laugh out loud’ moments.

Gutthi’s aka Chutki’s entry was the only silver lining in this entire script, which helped in making the audience stay onto this entire one hour program, last Sunday.

Sunil Grover’s presence, both as the corrupt politician ‘Anil Chaturvedi’ or the cute ‘Chutki’, displayed brilliant sense of comic timing, in conjunction to his funny one-liners or his facial expressions or his tongue-in-cheek with the celeb host ‘Baba Ramdev’. This was what made the show a little bit enduring or else the rest of the artists weren’t much efficiently used.

Most of the artists seen on the stage of ‘Mad In India’ have been of good creative and acting repertoire. Yet, the lack of good content and entertainment factor in the script could not translate the same through the other artists’ performances. Their efforts on stage simply fell flat and just made the entire show just about ‘tolerable’.

If comparing to the already established ‘Comedy Night’s on Colors, then this celeb comedy chat show has a long way to go. Other than the two-in-one stage which twists around and creates a different mood altogether, the newbie comedy chat entrant has very little to match with ‘Comedy Nights’.

Manish Paul has to hone his skills in terms of body language, facial expressions, dialogue delivery and also the humor factor to make the audience click with him as the comedy chat show ‘host’, who can relate to his one on one talk with celeb guests. He doesn’t come as natural at all while doing the job of a comedy chat show host.

Unfortunately, Manish’s efforts to have a humor filled or laughable candid chat with ‘Baba Ramdev’ was not much amusing. It was more of an open chat, where the set of questions did very little to see the funny side of the celeb.

Let’s see what he can bring to us in the coming weekend, when he will be seen having a candid chat with the famous on-screen couple Govinda and Karisma Kapoor. Stay tuned to watch more of this program on Sundays at 9 p.m. only on Star Plus.

Sachin Tendulkar – First Guest On Sunil Grover’s ‘Mad in India’


[To set reminder and check TV schedule of MAD in India click here......]

“Gutthi…Kapil, Kapil…Guthi, Guthi…audience, audience…Guthi”! If you are still wondering about these famous lines of Gutthi from ‘Comedy Nights with Kapil’, then you are bang on right! We all know who made this legendary introduction on the show and we need not go about introducing ‘Gutthi’ once again.


However, we do need to mention about Gutthi aka Sunil Grover’s new avatar, Chutki, which is set to make a debut with ‘Mad in India’. The show, another comedy interview with famous celebs, is soon to get near you on Star Plus, from 16th February onwards.

The show might be on similar lines with ‘Comedy Nights With Kapil’, but the show is most likely to witness celebs from all across genres. Starting with Cricket, Chutki is all set to make a debut with her first guest, a cricket legend, the latest ‘Bharat Ratna’ famed Sachin Tendulkar.

Earlier, the makers were in talks to rope in Yuvraj Singh, but the cricketer backed out due to other important assignments and the result was even better. The negotiations, which are heard to be in the final stages, are all likely to bring ‘Sachin Tendulkar’ in a completely never seen before comedy based interview. It will be fun to see the legendary actor expose his lighter side on the chat show, unlike his more serious interviews before.

Sunil Grover aka Chutki, will be seen sharing the stage with hosts Manish Paul and Dolly Ahluwalia. In fact, while taking to press, Sunil said that he wanted to make the audience laugh and so chose the name ‘Mad in India’!

Just like ‘Comedy Nights’, the show concept will witness Manish Paul chatting with celeb guests, while Chutki will make impromptu appearances in donning different avatars, to interact with them.

The audience, in short is likely to see a slice of ‘Gutthi’ in Chutki soon, but the idea of being torn between the two comedy chat shows will be quite interesting to watch out for.

Although, the comparisons between the two chat shows are likely to happen, only time which will spell the quantum success of MID compared to CNWK. Stay tuned to watch this space for more news related to your favorite shows, only on idubba.

MAD in INDIA to replace Nach Baliye 6


[To set reminder and check TV schedule of MAD in India click here......]

MAD in India, Sunil Grover aka Gutthi’s show will be replacing the current favorite show of viewers on Star Plus Nach Baliye 6. iDubba already told its readers that Sunil Grover will be coming soon with his new show in a new avatar called ‘Chutki’ and now we confirm the news of it to replace NB6 and also the name of his show. It’s MAD in India! Unusual but totally his type’s right?

Since Nach Baliye 6 will be reaching its crescendo next week, Star Plus couldn’t have thought well than this. Gutthi became a household name when Sunil portrayed this iconic character in Comedy Nights with Kapil on the rival channel COLORS.

MAD in India

After much success and fame, Sunil demanded an increase in money from the channel and finally left the show when he was denied. Star Plus surely took an advantage by tapping his talent and giving him a solo show which Sunil very well deserves.

The dance reality show Nach Baliye will bid adieu next week and Mad in India will happily replace it, please note it is not clashing with Comedy Nights with Kapil. This pact was peacefully signed between the two. Sunil made it very clear that he is not coming to compete with Kapil instead to make more money and get individual attention.

Stand-up comedian Sunil Grover is very excited with this golden opportunity. He will be playing ‘Chutki’ in the show, a character which will be quiet similar to his very popular role of ‘Gutthi.’ He will be sharing the stage with TV host and now a Bollywood hero Manish Paul and Dolly Ahluwalia from the movie ‘Vicky Donor.’

Manish would be seen interviewing various celebrities from TV and film fraternity. Sunil will be doing funny gigs with them in different avatars. Sources also tell us that ace Marathi comedian Siddharth Jadhav, who was seen in Comedy Circus will also join the team of these mad people.

Currently the team is working on the concepts and scripts. Sunil is happy that Indian viewers have started liking comedy shows over daily soaps as they give a variety of entertaining gigs which can be seen with the entire family. I am sure Sunil and his team will put lot of effort to make it different from Kapil’s show but people will certainly draw comparisons so he should be ready to take them.

There is again a feminine avatar similar to Gutthi, his favorite punches will be almost same, and we also saw the look of Chutki in Nach Baliye 6 when he came to promote it, which was little like Gutthi who used to wear Indian clothes.

Looks like there will be a good dose of comedy shows over the coming weekends. The time slot for this show is 9 pm and then at 10 pm you can watch Comedy Nights with Kapil. It’s gonna be a roller coaster ride of laughter for the viewers from next week. We wish Sunil all the best for his new journey!

[To set reminder and check TV schedule India’s Got Talent (Season 5) click here.......]

There’s been no dearth of talent shows, but this one is slightly off theme. ‘India’s Got Talent’, which always made news with its abundance of talent on stage, is once again back, to ignite creative minds and spirit from every walks of life. Right from child to old age, the age or sex or physical abilities seem to be no restrictions on this show.

The only things required is oodles of talent and creative spirit in some form, which could permeate and rise as a full-on entertainment. The promos of ‘India’s Got Talent’ season 5 have been making news, much before the show’s start.

From a man dousing himself in fire and jumping from a staggering height, to a woman dancing her way and wooing the judges with just one leg, the promos have garnered a huge uproar in the audience circle, who is now eagerly awaiting the season to begin.

India's Got Talent

Slated to kick start from 11th January, 2014 on Colors, the show will be a bi-weekly program, showcasing only on Saturday and Sunday. Considering the high entertainment quo of the participants and their levels of performance, the makers decided to choose the judges and hosts, who would spell nothing less than the very word ‘entertainment’.

Karan Johar, the biggest entertainer on-screen through his movies or persona, is all set to make a judge, along with stalwart actress Kirron Kher and the very sexy and attractive lass Malaika Arora Khan.

Talking about entertainment, the show’s hosts will be no less either. Manish Paul, who worked in ‘Mickey Virus’ and known for his comic timing will be seen matching the stand-up comedian ‘Bharti Singh’s charm and spontaneous sense of humor.

Right from the plot, to hosts to the judges, the show is one hell of  master blaster in entertainment and is all likely to grab high TRP’s through its high range of performances and not to mention, the performers.

Stay tuned to catch the upcoming talent hunt reality show, produced by Freemantle, as it strikes on silver screen only on Colors, sharp at 9 p.m. on 11th January, 2014.
