Acting career

Grover was discovered during his college days by the late satirist and comedian Jaspal Bhatti. He has also acted in India’s first silent comedy show, SAB TV‘s Gutur Gu in the initial 26 episodes.

But after having a fight with his co-actor Kapil Sharma, Sunil left the show.

Soon after leaving Kapil’s show, Grover returned to television with Star Plus’s show Kanpur Wale Khuranas with Aparshakti Khurana as the host. The plot of the show was similar to that of The Kapil Sharma Show, but it didn’t last long and soon went off the air.
