The ‘roast’ format of Colors’ Comedy Night Bachao has taken its toll on the show’s star-attendance. More and more A-list stars are staying away from Bharati Singh and Abhishek Krushna’s show where the guest is showered with insulting comments for laughter.
Recently Akshay Kumar took strong exception to his co-star Lisa Haydon being insulted on the show during the promotion of Housefull 3. He has now decided to not promote his new film Rustom on Comedy NightBachao.
And now Hrithik Roshan, whose Mohenjo Daro releases on the same day as Akshay’s Rustom has also decided to stay away from Comedy Nights Bachao.
Says a source close to Hrithik, “Hrithik will only be promoting his film on The Kapil Sharma Show. He had great fun promoting Krissh 3 on Kapil’s show.He has been asked to promote his show on Colors’ JhalakDikhlaa Jaa and Comedy Night Bachao. Hrithik has declined the kind offer.”
In the meanwhile Comedy Nights Bachao with its plummeting ratings in a desperate bid to regain some lost ground has decided to change its format . Henceforth the guests will ‘roast’ the show’s hosts.
