Mumbai: If the IPL hit on the perfect formula of cricket+ glamour+ entertainment, then taking the trend further is a new web series, Jio Dhan Dhana Dhan Live, headlined by popular comedian Sunil Grover, talking about his new show, Sunil said, “I am playing the character of professor LBW in the show. Its long form stands for Launda Bhatinde Wala. It’s a new show where we have combined comedy with cricket. The effort is to make people laugh while giving them information about cricket matches and it will be a whole new experience for the audience”

Grover was attending the preview of Jio Dhan Dhana Dhan Live along with Kapil Dev, Shilpa Shinde, Sugandha Mishra, Ali Asgar, Samir Kochhar, Archana Vijaya and Shibani Dandekar on Wednesday in Mumbai.

A few months ago, Sunil Grover parted ways with Kapil Sharma after their mid-air brawl when Kapil Sharma was returning from Australia with his The Kapil Sharma Show team, so when asked Sunil whether he will work with Kapil Sharma as entire country wants them to reconcile because since then,  Kapil Sharma is not up to the mark with his content because of mood swings and health issues, Sunil said, “I really had nice experience whenever I have worked with him. Kapil is a very talented artist and he makes people laugh through his performances. I pray for his good health and I hope he will continue doing his job. God willing, we will definitely work together.”

When asked Sunil whether he has gathered details about cricket to prepare for this show, he said, “I haven’t collected specific details about cricket for this show. Cricket is a popular sport in our country. I have the same amount of knowledge about cricket as much as we all have about cricket.” Sharing his childhood memories about cricket, Sunil said, “When I used to play cricket in my childhood that time my teeth were broken while catching a ball and I belong to small place called Mandi Dabwali, Haryana that time, I used to ball pick ball from potholes and throw at my friends which is not possible now.”

When asked Sunil whether his new show will compete with other comedian artist and Kapil Sharma’s new show Family Time, Sunil said, “There is not a thing like competition. If more artists come forward to make people laugh then it is good for the audience as they will have less tension in their lives. Laughter and happiness are necessary for our country so the more people laugh; it is more beneficial for their health.”

Sunil Grover played Shraddha Kapoor’s father in Baaghi so when asked Sunil whether he has watched Baaghi 2, he said, “I haven’t seen Baaghi 2 but I have worked with Tiger Shroff and he is one of my favorite actors. It was really nice working with him in Baaghi but I will surely watch Baaghi 2 in coming few days. I have heard that it is going good so I want to congratulate the entire team of Baaghi 2 for their success.
