The reason to wind up the show that had a successful run of three years was the channel Colors. They feel that the show has been sidelined, and another show, Comedy Nights Bachao has been give more importance.
A source associated with the Kapil's show was quoted by a leading daily as saying, "We were told that the new show will be called Roast. However, it was titled Comedy Nights Bachao, which is often mistaken for Comedy Nights With Kapil. It also looked like a clone as whatever happened in Kapil's show was replicated on Bachao.... They even recreated the Sunil Grover-Ranbir Kapoor's suhaag raat sequence with Krushna Abhishek and Ranveer Singh. Same celebrities appear on the show. There should be a demarcation between two shows airing on the same channel."
Kapil was quoted by the leading daily as saying, "Yes, it's true. We told them we would go off air in December, but since they didn't have a replacement ready, they requested us to continue till January 17. We started on a good note and put in immense hard work to maintain the quality."
The host revealed that his show has been successfully entertaining the audiences for the past three years with their content. But, when the show became a hit among the audiences, another show was introduced.
Kapil added, "Celebrities who readily agreed to come on our show were told that they will have to make an appearance on the other show as well. I understand the pressure on the channel to work towards making their shows a hit, but not at the cost of sabotaging an established one. It's perfectly fine to launch new shows, but two programmes should not have similar content and celebrities. I have great respect for people heading the channel. However, I don't want to be part of the crowd and hence, I decided to wrap up our show."
