Another roast gone wrong. Offended John Abraham stormed out of the sets of Colors’ show Comedy Nights Bachao as the ‘humor’ did not go down well with him.
Comedy Nights Bachao
Comedy Nights Bachao is infamous for inviting the ire of its guests, famous bollywood celebrities who are invited on the show to promote their films. The makers claim the show is based on the American concept of roasts – where a celebrity is usually made fun of by his peers in front of an audience.
However, one needs to exercise caution as its very easy to cross the line and end up rubbing people the wrong way! And thats what Comedy Nights Bachao seems to be doing best.
John Abraham was on the show with co actress Sonakshi Sinha to promote their latest release, Force 2. Things seemed shaky right from the start, as the host had been making fun of John’s acting prowess. But things went really downhill after snide references were made to some of John’s earlier movies, to which John’s tart response was that those were some of his favourite films. John was so miffed that he reportedly refused to join Krushna and Sonakshi for a dance and left the sets immediately after.
Krushna has admitted his mistake and apologised publicly, but it might be too little too late!
John is not the only celebrity to be at cudgels with this stand up comedian. Akshay Kumar, Hrithik Roshan , Shah Rukh Khan and other leading actors have also had a bone to pick with him in the past.
Krushna’s own uncle, famous star Govinda was dragged into a controversy recently when Krushna expressed displeasure about the former’s appearance on a rival comedy show on Sony TV.
The show also received a fair share of flak recently when another guest on the show, Tannishtha Chatterjee had raised concerns in a Facebook post. She wrote about how she had felt humiliated and discriminated against, as her dark skin colour was repeatedly made fun of by the hosts.
The channel had issued a public apology to Tannishtha at the time. However the show’s makers do not seem to have learnt any lessons.
There are also some speculations that the show may be taken off air if it keeps raising troubles for the channel. Until then, here’s hoping for better, cleaner comedy that does not need to make personal remarks in order to make people laugh.
