The first episode of Krushna Abhishek and Bharti Singh‘s Comedy Nights Live aired recently, but it didn’t receive a good response from the audience. In a candid chat with DNA, Krushna was asked how he felt and if this is what he had expected. He said:
Definitely. I was expecting bad reviews. This was Kapil’s (Sharma) show and we came on air just a week after his ended. This happens with every new show. When we were planning Comedy Nights Bachao, everybody told us Roast jaise shows India mein nahi chalte. I was told ‘Tumhare show mein Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan, Deepika Padukone nahi ayenge. This will be a flop show’. Kapil had also told me that. But today Comedy Nights Bachao is one of the top-rated shows. Production houses are calling me to say so and so actors will be coming on your show. Today people want entertainment. If not me somebody else will do it. For two months log gaaliyan denge… Gradually, we want to increase audience interaction. It’s a learning process. Bahut saara baggage leke kar raha hoon. Kapil has his own fan following, even I am one. Main uske joote mein chal raha hoon, so people will be angry. But memory is short. No actor is god. Mihir Virani died in Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi but producer Ekta Kapoor continues making shows.
