New Delhi: The popular comedy show ‘Comedy Nights Live’ has always been the talk of the town. The show had been a replacement of ‘Comedy Nights With Kapil’ and has been hosted by Krushna Abhishek.
While the show continues to be a arch rival of Kapil Sharma, looks like the time isn’t going in favour of CNL. Earlier, Mika Singh was kicked out of the show now it has been reported that Pinky Bua aka Upasana Singh too had left Krushna’s ‘Comedy Nights Live’.
Interestingly, Upasana had been the only member from CNWK which had joined CNL and is not regretting her decision.
On talking about what made her leave ‘Comedy Nights Live’, the actress stated that neither the show was giving any work satisfaction to her nor the makers fulfilled any of their commitments.
“First of all there was no work satisfaction. I haven't worked in such a pathetic show before. On some occasions, I could not believe it was a comedy show because the script was so bad. Secondly, they did not fulfill a single commitment.
“I feel they roped me in just because they wanted someone who had worked in Kapil's show before to help them get a good TRP. Essentially, they have just used me to their advantage. Now that the show has opened to a good TRP and is established, they have started making me feel useless on their show. The lines I got on the show were without any humour and punch lines. I requested the director of CNL several times to look into the matter, but he always said, "Abhi show shuru hua hai..dheere dheere theek ho jaayega."
They promised me a lot of things about my portrayal, but did not fulfill even a single commitment,” Upasana told a leading daily.
The actress also stated the CNL makers had changed the terms and conditions of the agreement.
"To top it all, they did not give me the agreement even after four months of working with them. Maine jab inhe kaha aap mera agreement do, to roz taalte rahte the.
"When I finally got the agreement, there were so many terms and conditions that I couldn't believe. The agreement said I could not do another comedy show. It also said they could kick me out of the show in 24 hours. Surprisingly, it did not have the terms and conditions we had agreed upon. I told them if you could kick me out of the show in 24 hours, I should also be able to quit the show by giving 24 hrs notice. I have made a huge mistake by committing to this show," Upasana said.
Upasana has also claimed that the makers have not even paid her for her stint on ‘Comedy Nights Live’ saying, "They have paid me for just two episodes. They had in fact promised to pay every 30 days. They did not fulfill that promise. Now they are saying they will clear my dues only after I sign the agreement. Clearly, they want to trap me. But I want to tell them, that they can't stop my payment. I will drag them to court. You can't do this to an actor.”
Looks like, things are turning murkier for ‘Comedy Nights Live”. However, there hasn’t been any statement by the producers of the show on Upasana’s claims so far.
