Mumbai: Sunil `Gutthi` Grover`s controversial exit `Comedy Nights With Kapil` has reached a flashpoint - the channel has decided to replace Sunil Grover with another comic actor Gaurav Gera.

Gaurav`s drag act starts this Sunday when Saif Ali Khan appears on the popular show, but he won`t play Gutthi. He will play another female character named Dulari.

Apparently, Sunil was planning a comedy show with Gaurav.

A bit of a stab-in-the-back situation, no?

Sunil disagrees. "If it wasn`s Gaurav it would`ve been someone else. The show had to go on. And I`m glad a friend is doing it. I`m looking forward to seeing what Gaurav does," he said.

Gaurav had played a woman on another show "Mrs Pammi Pyarelal" on the channel but the act bombed.
