“Star Plus and Sunil Grover thought of many variations on Gutthi. They've finally decided to call his new female avatar Chutki," said a source.

Confirming that Chutki would physically resemble Gutthi, the source added, "The get-up and body-language would be similar but not identical. Sunil Grover and the channel want to give a fresh identity to Sunil Grover’s show. They don't want it to look like a carryover of Kapil Sharma's show.”

Apparently, the makers are trying their best to keep the jokes and skits considerably different from Kapil’s comedy show.

According to reports, the plans to pitch Grover's show against ‘Comedy Night With Kapil’ have also been dropped.

“Sunil's show has for now been slotted for 8:30 pm behind Kapil’s show, which comes at 10 p.m. The idea is to let the two shows co-exist rather than compete against one another...at least for now,” the source said.

The title of Grover’s show has not been decided yet.
