Colors TV is apologetic to Tannishtha Chatterjee, but Krushna Abhishek is not
The celebrated actress of the west, Tannishtha Chatterjee has many marvellous roles to her credit, including her commendable act in the recently released ‘Parched’. Sadly, back here in her own country people are ignorant of her fame and calibre. This comes from the fact, that after ‘roasting’ her by making fun of her dark complexion, host of the show ‘Comedy Nights Bachao’ and comedian Krushna Abhishek feels that Tannishtha just wants publicity, hence all this hullabaloo.
Though Colors TV apologised to actress after she posted about the whole incident on social media, Krushna had to say something else on the matter. In conversation with a leading daily, Krushna said, “She is doing this for publicity. We always meet the actors before they come on the show. I had asked her if she had seen the show before and if she was familiar with our (roast) concept. She said she hadn’t seen the show. If she didn’t know what it was, she shouldn’t have come on the show.”
“Secondly, we gave more importance to Radhika Apte who is a bigger star. That must have also been a problem for Tannishtha,” added the comedian.
On being asked if he actually referred to the actress as ‘kaali kalooti’, he said, “I didn’t say that and I don’t know who said that. In fact, we have toned it down from what it was earlier.”
Well, well, well. Krushna, you need to be more informed about the guests on your show. Tannishtha certainly does not require more fame, she has that.
