Last night’s show (6 April episode of Comedy Nights with Kapil) took up where Saturday’s left off – Amitabh Bachchan was busy taking offence at something Raju said and poor Raju seemed absolutely petrified – before of course Mr. Bachchan burst into laughter and let him off the hook. He was playing a prank!
Comedy Nights with Kapil – Spontaneous or Rehearsed
This little scene makes one wonder how much of the show is rehearsed and how much is spontaneous. If Raju (Chandan Prabhakar) really didn’t know what was about to be visited on him, his discomfiture was understandable; else we have a very, very fine actor here indeed!
Comedy Nights with Kapil – Highlights of the 6 April 2014 show
Boman Irani came back on the show and did some dialogue-baazi at the request of an audience member. Before he left he, he did a very creditable rendition of the song Give me some Sunshine from 3 Idiots, not only singing but also playing the guitar himself. As the thanked his host and the audience, his affection and gratitude seemed very genuine indeed.
This episode of Kapil’s was a very democratic one – numerous women of all shapes, sizes and hues rushed on to the stage when Mr. Bachchan sang his famous Mere Angane Mein song. Each one got a hug, much to their obvious delight. The show also highlighted the story of one Mr. Shroff who had tried to donate blood to the injured superstar when he had been critically injured during the shooting of Coolie.
The birthday of Kapil (2 April) was also celebrated on the set with Mr. Bachchan himself cutting the cake.
With this kind of publicity prior to the film, bachche, boodhe aur jawaan are bound to rush to the theatres for Bhootnath Returns! And in the meanwhile here is another full episode of Comedy Nights with Kapil (promoting Main tera Hero) for your entertainment and edification.
