Salman Khan to appear Comedy Nights Bachao - Colors' new show to combat Comedy Nights with Kapil!

Salman Khan, Sooraj Pancholi and Athiya Shetty are all set to promote their film Hero on – waitaminute – not Comedy Nights with Kapil, but Comedy Nights Bachao! It seems TV channel Colors is hellbent on having a Saturday night slot for stand-up comedy, and have launched a new show Comedy Nights Bachao for prime time weekend. This slot was earlier occupied by Comedy Nights with Kapil – the show that made popular comedian Kapil Sharma very, very famous.

Now that Kapil has got busy with his movies and tours abroad, he is doing only one episode per week for Colors. And so, they have launched a new show with his comic rivals Krushna Abhishek, Sudesh Lehri, Bharti Singh and the like.

Colors TV tweeted, “@soorajpancholi9 & @theathiyashetty are coming to #ComedyNightsBachao! Gear up for a fun ride! @BeingSalmanKhan”. Comedy Nights Bachao will have five pairs of comedians ‘roasting’ celebrities on the show.

Does that mean Salman Khan will not appear on Comedy Nights with Kapil to promote Hero , even after he pleased Salman with the Bajrangi Bhaijaan Dubsmash? Watch video to know more about his gig on Comedy Nights Bachao. (Video: IANS | Photo: Krushna Abhishek Twitter.)
