WEB DESK: End of Comedy Nights left the fans in deep grief who took to social media to express their love for the star comedian Kapil Sharma and his popular comedy show.
The show aired its last episode on Sunday night with Kapil Sharma as Bittu, a witty, flirty and in-the-face owner of a magazine, who invites Bollywood stars to his house which is full of crazy characters.
Kapil’s fans are saddened by it , even though the show itself will continue as Comedy Nights Live with a new host Krushna Abhishek and other comedians.
Kapil found unprecedented fame as Bittu, and brought alive a family of lovable and memorable characters like Dadi, Bua, Guthi, Palak and many more closer to an audience hitherto bred on saas-bahu sagas, issue-based stories, reality shows, love stories, and more that people were bored of.
Naturally, viewers lapped up the bouts of laughter that Comedy Nights With Kapil (CNWK) so gloriously evoked weekend after weekend since 2013.
The plot revolved around the life of a family dealing with financial struggles with an over-excited elderly grandmother and the bitter-sweet banter of a married couple. The celebrity guests — who ranged from Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan and Ranbir Kapoor to Deepika Padukone, Kajol, Virat Kohli, Anushka Sharma and many more — added more fun, drama and humour to the episode.
CNWK became an instant hit.
The show underwent minor format changes, and even a leap, but its essence of providing mostly clean comedy for family audiences has remained intact.
Reportedly, the reason why CNWK was going offline is because of mutual disagreement between the channel and Kapil which is why the show was abruptly called off air. Kapil was upset with the channel for giving more importance and a pretty similar name to the other show and hence, it was decided to bring an end to the show.
Rumours are also making rounds on the media that Kapil demanded a higher profit share and wanted more money from Colors. But the channel didn’t fulfill his demands and that’s where it all started from. Colors has not confirmed anything about it.
