The cricketers have always loved their humor. Over the last few years, the name of former Indian cricketer Navjot Singh Sidhu has been connected to the comedy shows in India. Sidhu has become an iconic face for the comedy shows in the country. The deputy CM of Punjab was the chief guest or the chief judge in show titled as ‘The Great Indian Laughter Challenge’.
The show had run for several seasons. Also, Sidhu was seen for a long while on the popular show ‘Comedy Nights With Kapil’. And now, as per the recent reports in the Catch News, two other cricketers are likely to be roped in for a new proposed comedy show. The two cricketers who have been approached for the show are Virender Sehwag and Kapil Dev.
Both Kapil Dev and Virender Sehwag are iconic former Indian cricketers. The reports suggest that Sehwag and Kapil have signed a show which will feature Shilpa Shinde and Sunil Grover. Shilpa Shinde of the ‘Bhabhiji Ghar pe Hain’ fame had recently won the 2018 season of the popular Indian reality show ‘Bigg Boss’.
Meanwhile, Sunil Grover is a prominent comedian who was also seen in the Comedy Nights With Kapil. However, his fallout with the show host, Kapil Sharma, had resulted in an awkward exit for him from the show. He had later started his own show but that did not quite get rolling for a long time.
Second coming for many
Now, this show is reportedly going to be a second coming for Sunil Grover and also a new assignment for Shilpa Shinde. And with popular names like Virender Sehwag and Kapil Dev on board, the comedy show is expected to be a big hit.
Earlier, both these cricketers have featured in other television shows as guests. In the recent days, Sehwag has become a big name on the social media as a hilarious person. He often comes up with funny tweets that the fans absolutely go gaga about.
