The laughter will die down. The show is over. Comic virtuoso Sunil Grover's breakaway show Mad In India will go off the air on May 4.

According to sources at Star Plus, the decision to end the ill-fated laughathon was taken this week. It was arrived at after much deliberation.

"The show just wasn't working. The comparisons with 'Comedy Nights With Kapil' killed the show. The show's creative team first tried to move away from Kapil Sharma's format.

"When that didn't work, they tried to give more of the same thing as Kapil's show on 'Mad In India'. Finally, the show was neither here nor there. The channel has taken a decision to take it off," said the source.

"Mad In India" went on air in February, a while after Sunil left Kapil's show.

    The only one I feel awful about now is Sunil Grover

    I really wish a talented actor like Sunil gets over cross-dressing acts now and try new things!

    Gutthi was a unique attempt and should not become his trademark...

    Hoping for him to get better shows soon

    wooohooo. i am so happy. never watched the show.. but i saw the first few minutes of the first epi and then caught glimpses here and there.. such a bad bad copy. And no not a copy of CNWK... it was trying to copy the western comedy shows that come up at night...and with a tag line "100% desi show" WTH.

    I knew this was coming but I still feel bad for Sunil Grover.. he is a talented artist and he could come up something better.. I guess he should have waited some more time and experimented with many characters before launching his show.. it was too quick..
    Good luck for your future shows Sunil Smile

    Very Happy I am with this news.
    The not at al funny show is just super irritating.
    It was a bad copy attempt of cnwk..

    I wonder why "Star Plus" call themselves as "Nayi soch" when they clearly make attemts to copy things, grow up channel!

    This thing of Star India I like the most low trp close the show.
    Because, of that people who get bored can get something fresh.
    Secondly this is the secret behind the Star success.
    For example when Balika Vadhu, Uttran, Na Aana Iss Desh Meri Lado, Madhubala Ek Isaq Ek Jonoon when they started they were faddu on colors. But now some them were close with very poor trp and few of them are exist now also they are not like that they also has low trp.
    Bani Iske Da Kalma Oh! God why they are stretching the show if it has no trp from beginning.
    So, channel had to close these show. But they are not closing the shows. That's why colors come on 2nd and some time on 3rd position also.
    Same situation for ZEE also.

    It's about time! They should've cancelled it a long time ago. The show was so stupid and not funny at all.
