Sunil Grover said, "This is going to be one of my most refreshing characters. I get to collaborate with some of the finest artists like Samir, Shilpa, Kapil, and Viru paji to make India Laugh. You will see me as Professor LBW (Lallu Balle Waala) in the show, who is a self-proclaimed cricket expert. Jio is known for changing the game and this time, it's Cricket. India has never seen Cricket through the lens of humor before, and I am looking forward to batting on this pitch."
Speaking at the launch, former Indian Captain, Kapil Dev said, "Cricket is an intense sport but that doesn't mean there can't be any fun on and off the pitch. The players are always playing pranks and cracking jokes in the changing rooms. With Jio Dhan Dhana Dhan LIVE, we are opening up the lighter side of cricket to the world. I am looking forward to the upcoming cricket and laughter season".
