The first episode of Comedy Nights Live, the show that replaces Comedy Nights With Kapil was aired today (31st January). The show had Mika Singh in Navjot Singh Sidhu's place. Now, the audiences will get to hear Mika paji's songs instead of Sidhu paji's shayaris.
As we reported, Madhuri Dixit was the first guest of the first episode of CNL. The new show had Krushna Abhishek, who played Pappu Singh and Pappi Singh. Krushna will also be reprising other characters, while Bharti Singh was seen as Bittu Sharma's (Kapil Sharma) son, Chintu Sharma. Siddharth Sagar was seen playing Mangala (padosan-neighbour).
The one who chose to stay back on CNL was Upasana Singh, who played Pinki Bua in Comedy Nights With Kapil. She will be reprising Bua's role in the current show, So, good news for all Bua's fans as they won't miss her on CNL.
About Sidhu paji's replacement Mika, Bharti was quoted by an entertainment website as saying, "Mika is not going to be there for all the episodes as his dates are precious. He may be there for first few episodes but we will not have a celebrity constantly for a long period."
Also, Rashmi Desai, who was seen in the promo of CNL was quoted (regarding her role) by a leading daily as saying, "I'm not playing a fixed character on Comedy Nights Live; in fact, I would be seen portraying various characters. So, it's not that I would be seen as a permanent character."
She added, "The makers are trying something new and they will keep introducing new people on the show and I'm one of them. But I can't talk much about it right no."
Well, we will definitely miss many thing from CNWK, especially, Kapil Sharma's comedy and Sidhu's shayaris!
