Comedian Sunil Grover, who was earlier in the news for his fallout with Kapil Sharma, has landed himself in trouble, yet again. Grover had quit The Kapil Sharma Show after his feud with the comedian. He had been focusing on his own career for a while now by doing multiple live shows in different cities across India.

His next show, slated to be in Ahmedabad on 27 May has now landed in legal trouble. According to India Today, Ahmedabad-based event organiser Rajpal Singh has filed a complaint of cheating and criminal conspiracy against Grover, his manager and another event organizer Devang Shah.

According to DNA, Sunil's manager and Shah had committed to Singh that Grover would perform at an event but the contract was violated and now he will perform at another event in Ahmedabad for a greater fee.

However, according to Devang Shah's version, they couldn't do the show on 27 May and the advance fee of Rs 10 lakhs was returned to Singh. There are bank statements as proof, and there seems to be no violation of contract from Grover's side.

Now, Grover has opened up on the issue. The Indian Express quotes him as saying, "“I am not at fault. If someone wants attention by doing such a thing… I don’t know who this guy is. My management, my team booked the show in Ahmedabad and I am quite excited to go there and perform. Everything is clear from our end with him. He wanted to change the date and my manager returned the money because we didn’t have the date. On the same date, some other organiser came and we signed with him. So, this was very ethical. We returned the advance that he had given us so, after that he wants attention."

“No one is bothering to find out who this person is and what is his track record. It’s very childish what this guy is doing to gain attention. I don’t even want to comment on it. I recently got to know that it’s good we are not doing the show with him because he is not a credible organiser. If you find about him, you will know," he went on to say, as per the same report.

Tandav review: Amazon Prime Video's campy, poorly-researched political series misses the mark

Tandav prefers to dumb down its plot assuming Indian audiences need to be spoon-fed Indian politics. As a result, one feels bad for gifted actors like Saif Ali Khan, Sunil Grover and Gauahar Khan, whom the series lets down.
