Those who follow The Kapil Sharma Show might have noticed that Anushka Sharma went to promote Phillauri without Diljit Dosanjh and it surprised everyone as the two have promoting the film together on very platform. Then what went wrong? Why did only Anushka go without Diljit on the show?
Well, according to a report in a leading daily, the reason for Diljit for not attending the show was because of the issue between Colors channel and Kapil Sharma. Diljit is judging Colors’ The Rising Star and it was but obvious that it would have affected.
Earlier, Kapil’s Comedy Nights With Kapil aired on Colors with but things went downhill with the channel and Kapil moved to Sony. In an interview with the daily, Colors’s CEO Raj Nayak, said, “Kapil Sharma was on television for over 10 years, first on Laughter Challenge and then on Comedy Circus before he did Comedy Nights…’ with us. He is a nice person and is extremely talented. We gave him a platform and co-created ‘Comedy Nights…’ with him. It was the channel’s decision to call it ‘Comedy Nights With Kapil’ (originally the show was to be titled ‘Comedy Nights’), as we felt that it would give him a sense of ownership and his loyalty to the show would be 100 per cent. We even helped him set up his production company. The success of the show meant that we had a person who suddenly became a star and found it difficult to manage his success.”
He had further added, “Kapil started renegotiating and asking for more money which we gave, but the more important and worrying thing was that he violated his contract by hosting shows on competitive channels in spite of having an exclusive contract with Colors for TV, which we felt was not ethical.”
But, apparently this has now restricted Diljit and he couldn’t be a part of the show!
