Last week’s Bollywood release, Parched has the hearts of viewers and critics alike. The film boasts of strong performances by Tannishtha Chatterjee and Radhika Apte. In order to promote the film, the lead cast was present on the Colors show, Comedy Nights Bachao. And we told you how Tannishtha had a disappointing experience on the show as they constantly took digs on her skin colour.

The actress made her displeasure known to the Colors channel authorities and shared her harrowing experience on Facebook. The channel immediately apologised and said:

It is rather unfortunate that what you had expected to be a fun and novel experience turned out to be traumatic for you on the sets of ‘Comedy Nights Bachao’. As a channel, COLORS has always focussed on creating content that is meaningful and addresses pertinent social issues- skin colour bias- being one of them. As far as ‘Comedy Nights Bachao’ is concerned, we have ensured that the content is free from anything that may be deemed offensive. It was never our intention, nor a practice for us or the makers of the show to offend anyone at all with the jokes. We have taken this up seriously with the creative team and the Production House to ensure that the show is produced in line with the vision of the channel.
