Star Bharat has confirmed the launch of its new comedy series ‘Gangs of Filmistaan’.
The show, which will feature Sunil Grover, along with other comedy icons Shilpa Shinde, Sugandha Mishra, Sanket Bhosle, Upasana Singh, Paritosh Tripathi and Siddharth Sagar, launches on Star Bharat at the end of this month.
Grover recently confirmed that the show’s proceedings will be going to COVID19 relief. He told Mirror, “I don’t know how to make a vaccine, but I know how to entertain and that’s what I aim to do.”
‘Gangs of Filmistaan’ will not include any celebrity guests or live audience. Grover will play the role of a don, who wants to be entertained. Talking about his role, Grover said, “For the first time I will be sitting on the other side and this way, will automatically observe social distancing.”
“I will not be revisiting any of my iconic characters, like Gutthi and Mashoor Gulati. I come with a new character, but with same old intentions. I hadn’t planned on doing a show, but the offer was too good to pass up,” he added.
‘Gangs of Filmistaan’ airs from Monday 31st August at 20:00 (India) and 20:30 (UK).
