Days after the culmination of the historic Bali Yatra in Cuttack, Odisha hosts another big event in the southern coastal belt – Gopalpur Beach Festival. With a glittering opening ceremony, the five-day fest kicked off on Saturday in the port town of Gopalpur in Ganjam district.

Gopalpur Beach Festival (GBF) has always been a display of magnificent blend of rich tradition and culture of south Odisha. Apart from this, the event every year hosts multicultural performances from artistes of Odisha and beyond. As the festival resumed after a two-year Covid hiatus, the artiste line-up is quite long this year. Javed Ali, Armaan Malik, Prince Dance Group and other renowned singers of Ollywood and Bollywood are in the list of major star attractions.

But are you aware that this time actor-comedian Sunil Grover will also be a part of the beach fest celebrations? Yes, you heard it right. The organizing body of GBF tweeted, “The comedy king SUNIL GROVER is all set to make the stage fire with his performance on 26th December (Monday) at Gopalpur Beach Festival 2022. Don't miss out the chance!!”

“Main aa raha hoon Gopalpur Beach Festival Odisha mein 26 December 2022 ko. Let’s have fun. Festival mein maza karenge. Aap bhi aaiye,” says the popular comedian in the video.

It's true that of late stand-up comedy has reached saturation levels, and people rarely get a chuckle, let alone a laugh, while watching comedians perform on stage. But Sunil Grover aka Gutthi-Gulati is an exception. Reason why his untimely exit from The Kapil Sharma Show on Sony TV proved to be a big blow for the showmakers, and it continues to hit them hard till date. For fans in Ganjam, it's time to hit the Gopalpur beach to enjoy the thrilling experience with one and only Sunil Grover.
