John Abraham joins the string of Bollywood actors who have had issues with show Comedy Nights Bachao, a popular comedy show with the ‘roast’ format. John, who was on the show to promote his upcoming action film Force 2 along with Sonakshi Sinha and Tahir Raj Bhasin, reportedly walked out of the shoot after its host Krushna Abhishek took dig at his acting skills.
“Krushna ridiculed John’s acting skills and that did not go down well with him. He left the shoot and Krushna even went after him to apologise and pacify him but John did not relent. Thankfully, the major crux of the show was already shot as Krushna and Sudesh’s act is always the last. We don’t know what was John expecting from the roast,” a source from the channel told indianexpress.com. The channel is yet to take a call on whether the whole act of Krushna and Sudesh will be axed from the episode.
It was previously reported that during the promotion of John’s last release, Dishoom, he refused to appear on Comedy Nights Bachao due his reservation about the roast format. The Colors show might be raking in the TRPs, but in the recent months, there have been several incidents when actors have complained against the format of the show.
Two months ago, actor Tannishtha Chatterjee blasted the show for making fun of her skin colour. Actors Jacqueline Fernandez, Varun Dhawan, Hrithik Roshan and Akshay Kumar have reportedly refused to promote their films on the show, expressing their displeasure over the jokes cracked by the hosts on the guests.
