Amazon Prime Video’s Tandav was subject to criticism and trolling since its release on January 15. The political web series was accused of hurting the religious sentiments of a section of people. Actor Sunil Grover played a supporting role in the series and months after the controversy, has talked about consistently making efforts to take up 'safer subjects'.

The actor said that there is no control over how people react to things. “You can try, but you can't know how others will react,” he said.

Ali Abbas Zafar’s Tandav received backlash over a couple of scenes. During that time, social media was flooded with some people calling for a boycott. FIRs were also registered against the show’s cast. In an interview, Sunil, who embodied the role of an enforcer named Gurpal Chauhan, shared that the web series 'a work of fiction.

After winning hearts with his brilliant stint in TV and films, comedian and actor Sunil Grover is all set to take the digital world by storm.

Written by Vikas Bahl, the 8-episode comedy-thriller series will narrate the story of a middle-class housing society in Mumbai called 'Sunflower', with several quirky characters and twists.

The trailer of the same has been released and it looks quite promising. The intriguing trailer begins with a murder case that Ranvir Shorey and Girish Kulkarni are seen inspecting very meticulously. Sunil Grover’s character Sonu is just being his innocent self. Sunil brings his forte of creating humor into the show, as he is trying to crack jokes amidst the ongoing murder investigation. It also suggests that there’s something eerie about the Sunflower housing society.

Among the popular actors and comedians, Sunil Grover has managed to establish his name in the industry over a period of time. Fans loved him while he was on The Kapil Sharma Show and post it too, his stint on various other shows was loved. On his social media handles too, Sunil keeps it hilarious and shares unique posts to tickle the funny bones of his fans, and most of the time, it is loved. However, on Holi this year, Sunil seemed to have wished fans 2 days late and that has triggered a meme fest on Twitter. 

On March 31, 2021, Sunil wished fans 'Happy Holi' on Twitter. However, it was two days after the festival of colors. Seeing Sunil's late wish, many fans were left amused by the Comedian-actor's late timing in wishing his fans. As soon as Sunil shared his wish, fans started joking with him in the comments and claimed that Holi was over now and that he should wish for Diwali now. Not just this, his wish also gave rise to hilarious memes featuring Akshay Kumar from Hera Pheri, Pankaj Tripathi from Mirzapur, and many more. 

After having won hearts with his brilliant acting prowess in television shows, Sunil Grover has spread his wings to films and web series too. However, one question which still haunts the minds of his fans is whether or not he will be seen in The Kapil Sharma Show again. For the unversed, the actor exited the comedy show after a brawl with Kapil Sharma onboard a flight. Although the two of them have forgotten their enmity now, their most-waited reunion is still in question. 

Now, the latest report by TOI states that Sunil Grover has no plans to return to The Kapil Sharma Show. A source close to the actor says, ". It is really unfair to take away the appreciation Sunil Grover got for his performance in his recent web series by pushing stories about a Kapil Sharma show." Moreover, it is also confirmed that the actor has not received any call from Salman Khan regarding his return to the popular show. Earlier, there were numerous rumors of a possible reunion between Sunil and Kapil.

Talking about Sunil Grover's career, the actor was last seen in Tandav co-starring Saif Ali Khan, Dimple Kapadia, Gauahar Khan, and others in the lead roles. He will next be seen in the web series titled Sunflower which has been directed by Vikas Bahl. He was reportedly also supposed to go to the USA for a stage show with none other than Salman Khan himself. However, that will depend on whether or not the COVID-19 situation will come to a check.

"During this pandemic, I got ready to do this show because it's a comedy show. Nowadays people are so upset with their lives, that they need a laughter break. When I heard the script of this show, I loved it. I have done comedy shows, but I never got a chance to imitate someone particularly. This will completely be something new for me and my audience," said Paritosh.

"Since childhood, we have been imitating people around us, even our parents used to ask us to act like someone or do some acts for which they even clapped. I believe we all have this talent in us since childhood, we copy things from our surroundings. Imitating others is not an easy task, people may not enjoy what you do, you have to become what character you play, and you have to be within your character's limit so that you don't overdo," he added.
