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!
