25th October shall mark the third death anniversary of the man who made the masses laugh – Late Jaspal Bhatti Ji.
Sunil Grover, who is famous for his character ‘Gutthi’, will be seen paying tribute to the legendary satirist Padma Bhushan Jaspal Bhatti during an event that is being organised by Chandigarh Police on the 25th of this month, the day we lost this great man.
The Event will also have on stage Chandigarh MY FM Rj’s Meenakshi and Golmaal Gagan, Mr Vinod Sharma, one of Jaspal Bhatti’s close team members and the Khurki Team will also be giving in their contribution to the event.
Jaspal Bhatti is the brand ambassador of Chandigarh Traffic Police.
About the association, Chandigarh Traffic SSP: “The function’s aim is to honour Chandigarh Traffic Police Brand Ambassador Late Jaspal Bhatti and also to promote awareness about traffic safety among the general public in order to save precious human lives.”
Sunil has been a part of the Bhatti team in his starting years and did many shows with Jaspalji. Try to recognise him in this sequence of episodes:
When Sunil came to Jaspal Bhatti Film School, here’s what he had to say:
This event is specially being managed and coordinated by the beloved wife of Bhattiji – Mrs Savita Bhatti, who said: “My reason for doing this event is selfish. I cannot imagine Jaspalji to be gone. He lives on, so I live too. If I think he’s no more, I’m finished too. Through Sunil and my act, other acts, parodies and videos, I want Jaspalji’s name to reverberate in the air. I want that his legacy, even if it is divided among millions, is carried forward. The legacy of finding humour in everyday frustrations, legacy of being honest, legacy of being original, legacy of being compassionate and the legacy of being humble!”
When Sunil aka Gutthi was asked about the importance of this day for him, he replied: “The reason is paying tributes to the master of humour. He is not physically present here, but his scripts and writings are. This is the point where we have to compromise and consolidate ourselves. I will be a part of the gags being enacted LIVE on stage. We shall be acting out his scripts One More Time.”
