New Delhi: Yoga guru Baba Ramdev broke into guffaws here Wednesday thanks to a live act by comedian Sunil Grover, popular for his role as Guthhi in `Comedy Nights With Kapil`.

Sunil was here as part of Guthhi, Agenda Agenda, Guthhi, a session conducted at the India Today Group`s Agenda Aaj Tak event.

Ramdev, who was slated to address the ensuing session, attended Sunil`s session and what followed was complete hilarity.

When Ramdev asked: "Are you only Guthhi? Your name is Guthhi or do you have another name?"

Pat came the reply from the standup comedian: "Just like your name is Shri Ramdev but you have Baba prefixed to your name, I am Sunil Grover and `Guthhi` has got attached to my name."

Recently, Sunil quit "Comedy Nights With Kapil" and Ramdev asked Sunil the reason behind his decision to leave the show.

He said: "I have never seen you on TV before, but I have heard about Guthhi. I watch news channels and they were saying that Guthhi has left the show because he was getting less money. My blessings are with you and I hope you make more money elsewhere."

To that, the quick-witted Sunil said: "Aur zyaada mile, isliye maine chhod diya aur aapka ye aashirwaad mile (I quit the show so that I can earn more and also to get your blessings). Thank you for your blessings."

On a serious note, Sunil felt honoured to get a chance to perform at the prestigious event.

"So many people want to meet you and talk to you. It`s an honour and my good fortune that I could talk so much in front of you," Sunil told Ramdev.
