New Delhi: Comedian-turned-actor Kapil Sharma had given a new definition to comedy with his show ‘Comedy Nights With Kapil'.
The actor not just became a household name but also became a brand in itself.
However, things changed and the show went off-air recently.
And since then, a lot has been said and written about the ending of the show speculating the reason behind ‘Comedy Nights With Kapil' going off air.
If the gossip mills are to be believed, the show ended because of a dispute between the channel and Kapil Sharma.
And now Colors revamped the old show and launched it with the name ‘Comedy Night Live' and replaced Kapil Sharma as host with Krushna Abhishek, who also hosted ‘Comedy Nights Bachao' on Colors.
Although, the new show hasn't able to gear off like CNWK, Krushna has reportedly taken a dig at Kapil for running away from the competition
“Colors was running CNWK very well. For some strange reason, Kapil had a problem when big stars started coming to my show CNB as well. He shouldn't have left Colors, who made him into a big brand. He forgot that when Shah Rukh visited his show for the first time, it was due to Colors and not him. Aap apna show apne dum per chalao, hum apna show apne dum pe chalayenge. Why couldn't he have had a healthy competition with me? Why did he run away? Why did he feel so insecure? He is such a talented artiste. I thought he'll fight back. If you recall, he felt insecure even when Guthi's popularity increased. Think of it, Guthi's show too didn't well when he branched out and quit Colors,” Krushna was reported saying.
On the other hand, there were reports that it was Kapil Sharma's pricey attitude that made the channel call off CNWK. However, Krushna's statement depicts another story. We wonder what Kapil Sharma has to say about this.
