Tellywood’s favourite devar Ali Asgar and Kashif Khan were crowned the kings of guffaws in the first season of Comedy Circus. They beat Swapnil Joshi and VIP by a very close margin.
Obviously, the loss rankles. Both Ali and Swapnil are now a part of Shah Rukh Khan’s TV show, Ghar Ki Baat on NDTV Imagine.
While Swapnil is playing Juhi Babbar’s brother, Kaku, Ali enacts a different character in each episode.
On Sunday, Ali was wielding a chabuk which was part of his get-up. Swapnil suddenly snatched the whip from his hand and hit him hard, hurting him badly.
Swapnil’s sudden attack shocked the director, Anant Mahadevan, and his co-stars.
Realising his mistake, Swapinil apologised and even arranged for ice for Ali, who despite the pain, carried on with the shooting without any tantrums.
The prime time soap on Zee TV, Banoo Main Teri Dulhaan, will reportedly go off air from March 13. The apparent reason for this is the steeply falling TRPs which are currently at 2.5 points.
The prime time saga will be replaced by another soap, Agle Janam Mohe Bitiya Hi Kijo. The decision to take the show the off air was taken overnight before the TRPs slide down further. The cast and the producers have reportedly been informed about the decision.
