Ali Asgar: There were issues between channel and Comedy Nights With Kapil


The final episode of popular show “ Comedy Nights With Kapil ” will now come on January 24 after the channel postponed the date by a week amid reports that there were differences between them and host Kapil Sharma.

Actor Ali Asgar, who was seen playing Dadi on the show, confirmed with PTI  that there were some issues between the production house and the channel while Kiku Sharda aka Palak said he did not know the date of telecast.

 Asgar said they were aware that the show might go off air but thought things might get sorted out in the end.

“It is not that we were running out of content or the audience got bored. We continued to get the good response. Though there were some issues between production house and the channel,” Asgar told PTI.

“Before 25 days or so we were aware that the show is going to end but we thought things might work out. We got to know about the last day of the shoot before 15 days. The production house and channel decide when the show goes on air,” he revealed.


Sharda who is popular with the audience as Palak, told PTI, “We were aware of the last date of the shoot but we did not know about the date of telecast.”

The final episode of the show, which was shot with the “Airlift” stars Akshay Kumar and Nimrat Kaur, was supposed to air on January 17 but the channel will now telecast it on January 24.

The channel aired rival show “Comedy Nights Bachao” instead on that day but it seemed that the “CNWK” actors Sunil Grover, Sumona Chakravarti were not aware of this change as they kept promoting the show for January 17.

Kapil had tweeted on January 17, “I hope @ColorsTV will air the last episode of cnwk with @akshaykumar tonight since its our way to say gracious thanks to our audience.”

However, Akshay posted recently that the final episode will air on January 24, two days after his film’s release.

“Like all good things must come 2 an end, watch Nimrat & me on d last ep. of ur fav show @CNWKOfficial on Jan24 @ 10 pm (sic),” he posted.

Sumona, who plays Kapil’s onscreen wife, simply tweeted, “Finally.”

Asgar said it was indeed a very emotional day for the star cast of the show, which is ending after three years.

“We shot on January 12 with ‘Airlift’ team. The last day was emotional for all of us. This show gave all of us the name, fame and money. It has been a memorable journey for me,” he asserted.
