Preeti Simoes said, "There is no point reacting. He (Krushna) has made such immature statements. Why will Kapil Sharma feel insecure of Krushna?"

Bringing the curtains down on Kapil Sharma’s Comedy Nights With Kapil has not been a happy one for channel Colors. A lot of drama was involved over the telecast of the final episode of the hit show. While Kapil has maintained a steadfast silence, Comedy Nights Live host Krushna Abhishek, in a scathing attack, called Kapil insecure and accused him of running away instead of staying put and fighting back.

But Preeti Simoes, who was the creative director of Comedy Nights With Kapil, spoke up in defence of Kapil and said the new show’s host and the makers were ‘blowing their own trumpets and digging their own graves. Let them do what they have to.’ (Read: No ‘Comedy Nights’ without Kapil Sharma, say fans)

Talking to IndianExpress.com, Preeti said, “There is no point reacting. He has made such immature statements. Why will Kapil Sharma feel insecure of Krushna? It is as simple as that. Just because you want to put yourself in Kapil’s category, you are drawing those comparisons. Did anybody else say anything? And because you did that, the track you got in your first episode came out. Let your work speak. Why do you want to put words in people’s mouth. And you want people to compare you with Kapil. That is why you are making certain statements. Has Kapil ever spoken a word about any other show? Kapil came from Comedy Circus. Comedy Circus shut down he never said anything. About Comedy Classes too he never said anything. Then Comedy nights Bachao came and even though they were not number one or even in that category, they started announcing we are number one and have the highest TRPs and all that. You see they have come for strong reasons. Their prime reason should be to make people laugh. Their reason should not be to put someone down or look better or make people feel we are in the same category. But their pride lies in the fact that Madhuri Dixit ne yeh kiya or Katrina Kaif aa gayi. These are all the wrong reasons. How can we or anyone compare themselves to them because these are two different worlds. It is like Bajirao Mastani comparing to Kya Kool Hai Hum. It is so stupid. These were two different shows catering to different audience and one can’t expect one to compare themselves to somebody. They are blowing their own trumpets and digging their own graves. Let them do what they have to.” (Also read: Comedy Nights With Kapil: Channel drops final episode of Kapil Sharma’s show)

Preeti also refused to accept the argument that it is the channel Colors that made Kapil a big brand. When asked if it was the channel that made Kapil a star, Preeti said, “You think so. He first won Laughter Challenge. The first show he did was for MH1. He won Laughter Challenge , Laughter Challenge made Kapil. He won six seasons of Comedy Circus and Comedy Circus made Kapil. It is the talent that makes one what he or she is. Nobody makes anybody.”

When asked how Kapil has been reacting to all the statements being made about him in public, Preeti said, “He has moved on. That is the kind of man he is. He doesn’t even bother. We are busy in the process of planning our next show.”

    Greed got the better of kapil, laalach buri bala hai. I guess everything has a time, also he exploited the channels.

        If one is really talented they rant meaninglessly.. Look at the phrasing of words and sentences repeatedly claiming nothing. If you are good why are you ranting about boring show going off air.. Only few folks liked it and not all..it was really time.. Why not go and do something new to show case your talent..

              This colors channel never puts a deserving person ahead.Either it's Big Boss, Jhalak, IGT or any thing. just see how this channel just came up by cheap means and steal the shows of others. This channel CEO and all people are same without dignity.

                  According to many many many people, Kapil Sharma deserves to be paid crores of rupees. If useless actors like rimi sen and fake contestants like Prince, Mandana can get paid lakhs and crores of rupees for TRP's, then why not Kapil ?... He worked very hard for his show. He gave colors channel fame. Colors should be thankful to Kapil for making their Channel Number 1... Krushna is the vulgar and cheapest person and he always says cheapest thing on show. I watched his last episode with Madhuri. Madhuri itself was not interested and it was clearly seen on her face... Anyways. Anyhow nobody is going to watch that rubbish show Comedy Nights. We want Kapil to be back with Bang! with new show new format in other channel. All the Best Kapil Ji. We Love You. Muuuaaaahhhhh!!!

                        Krishna is awesome.Man!if anybody thinks Kapil is better,think again.Kapil just digs out humour from people's comments and situations.But,Krishna a dancer,actor,comedian(even if stand up),Star.Watch his movies,when he starts dancing he overshadows everybody.They don't give him footage.For latest,see Oh boy! Song of kya kool hai hum 3.And Krishna they are all just angry,you are definitely better.Anybody says your mama made you,he is wrong.You worked real hard for it.

                                    This so called Kushna is a cheap person, jeolous of Kapil, no one can beat Kapil in India unless killed, Kapil must go to Door Darshan instead of sold cheap vested private TVs.

                                      No match in originality. Krushna is doing comedy without originality. It is just making mockery of others. There is no originality in his any of the show

                                        Hey guys, I read a recent article where kapil also is no saint. He demanded alot from colors channel to double his pay and lots more too. I'm Not a fan of krushna or any of their shows and was totally a kapil fan but after reading that article, I was totally blown off. In the end, wen money starts flowing in, it's the money that talks and fans become a dumpster.

                                          when you watch kapil performance you forget all the tensions and stress in life. That is what makes kapil special. Eveybody connects with Kapil that way. Rest is paani kum,
