Sunil Grover in new avatar as Sabjee

Mumbai, March 11 (IANS) Tired of comedy shows encashing in on cross-dressing antics? Sunil Grover has decided to go easy on the gender benders, and on his show "Mad In India", he will now play two roles - the popular female avatar Chutki and a brand new avatar as a boy named Sabjee.

"The idea is to expand the bandwidth of the humour from gender differences to a more broad-based appeal. It is hoped that Grover's kid-avatar Sabjee would become as popular as Grover's female avatars," said a source.

"Mad In India" is on a damage control spree. The show makers have roped in cricketer Harbhajan Singh for a tete-a-tete with Grover, who will appear before the cricketer as a child eager to learn the ropes of the game.

"The producers wanted Grover to come on the show as Chutki to interview Harbhajan Singh. But Grover doesn't want to make the cross-dressing the show's talking point. Hence, the child," said the source.
