Take Balika Vadhu for instance. The show never became a hit among small screen viewers just because of the social subject it touched upon and discouraged child marriage. But it was the central character of Anandi that manage to strike the right chord with audiences and it became a win-win situation for everyone. Clearly, Anandi scored way more and above the show Balike Vadhu itself and that validates how a character can supersede the show that created it.The latest buzz around the Telly world is that Gutthi aka Sunil Grover, the popular fictitious character on Comedy Nights with Kapil has quit the show. While some say its due to financial reasons that Gutthi decided to leave, some believe it was his equations with host and producer of the show Kapil Sharma that led to his abrupt exit from the show.

As everyone continues to speculate whether they would get to see Gutthi and her funny antics ever again on small screen, I have a different story to tell. I somehow feel that its insecurity that creeps in, which becomes a prime reason behind such decisions. Evidently, Gutthis immense popularity was taking over Kapils screen presence.

Despite the fact that the show truly and solely belonged to the tongue-in-cheek stand-up comedian, audiences still would wait for Gutthi to come and woo them with the funniest tricks and that crazy-to-die-for accent. So, it wont be wrong to say that this can be one of the most important reasons that forced Sunil Grover aka Gutthi to call it quits.

Moreover, if you see over the last few years, whatever popular shows have made it BIG on television, it has been seen that somewhere or the other, it is due to one particular character that the show picks up on the TRP chart. And revolving around that peculiar character, the show would continue for ages and would never end.

In case of Comedy Nights with Kapil, it was Gutthi who scored over the host himself and you cant blame anyone for this - neither audiences who went gaga over Gutthis performance nor Kapil who is seemingly getting repetitive in his humour and punches on the show.

Agree or not but even Kapil Sharmas interaction with tinsel town celebrities was getting a bit monotonous with predictable questions and twists and eventually, everyone would be looking forward to Gutthis entry to bring something new.

Another popular daily soap Uttaran also survived for so long because of its protagonists Iccha and Tapasya. The two on-screen characters became household names for the small screen viewers and I wont be surprised if the producers and show makers drag and stretch the soap for next few years just with these two prime characters doing their bit.

So its nobodys fault but definitely someones loss becomes another persons gain. As rumours of Gutthi leaving Comedy Nights with Kapil continue to pick momentum, Id say guys take a chill pill, if not Gutthi, there would be someone else to tickle your funny bone.
