Recently, the Housefull 3 actors - Akshay Kumar, Lisa Haydon Riteish Deshmukh and Jacqueline Fernandez were on Comedy Nights Bachao, to promote their movie. Since the movie is also a comedy film, the show was the perfect platform for the cast to promote. But looks like something went seriously wrong, when one of the comedians roasted the actor of the film!
According to Mid-Day reports, comedian Siddharth Jadhav called Lisa, a kangaroo since she comes from Australia. He had also allegedly passed a racist comment, calling her a 'black African'. This is when Akshay came forward to stop the comedian.

Though Akshay intended to push turned into a shove and the comedian landed on the stage in full view of the audience. It was even said that 'Lisa and Jacqueline had already welled up by then and if Akshay had not intervened, at least one of them would have broken down.'
It was also said that Akshay was unfair fun of a person (Lisa) who didn't even know the language well. When the situation went out of control, Akshay apparently went through the script and suggested a few changes.
Now, Adaa Khan and Siddharth Jadhav have denied the rumours. Jadhav was quoted by Bollywoodlife as saying, "The news report is totally wrong. No one made hurtful comments at Lisa. We were having a lot of fun. I taught her words in Marathi. It is fake news."
Adaa Khan too denied the reports and said, "No racist comments were made on Lisa or anyone. I don't remember anyone uttering the word, African. It was a prank. All is well."
Well, getting roasted is not everyone's cup of tea. We just hope the writers of CNB understands this....
