New Delhi: Sunil Grover recently announced on Twitter that he has associated himself with a very good project and now, Indian Express reveals that the Sunil Grover is planning to sign up for a digital show co-starring Bigg Boss 11 winner Shilpa Shinde. The show will keep up the audience interest by incorporating the upcoming Indian Premier League in its content. "They (show producers) are working on a one-of-a-kind show for the digital world that will bring together cricket and comedy. Sunil and Shilpa will play commentators and discuss the on-going IPL matches. It would be on the lines of extra innings, only it would be much more fun and entertaining.

After winning Bigg Boss 11 in January, Shilpa Shinde told news agency IANS that she was interested in working on the small screen. She blamed her tryst with the makers of Bhabi Ji Ghar Par Hai! for her disillusionment from the TV industry. She told IANS: "After working for so many years, the way few people of the industry treated me, I am disheartened. I do not wish to work in the TV industry anymore." In 2016, Shilpa left the show due to some issues with the makers and had also reportedly filed a sexual harassment complaint against one of the producers.
