W are to see a Subhash Ghai film after a really long time; small wonder that the promos of his soon to release Kaanchi are in full swing. It was only to be expected that the cast as well as the man who will be directing and producing the film, graced the 20th April 2014 episode of Comedy Nights with Kapil. Last night’s episode of India’s best loved comedy show featured India’s original dancing star Mithun Chakraborty who will also be seen in the film as well as the lead pair, newcomers Mishti and Kartik Tiwari who will be seen in Kaanchi slated for release this coming weekend:
Mithun Chakraborty and Subhash Ghai on Comedy Nights with Kapil
When we see older stars such as Mithun Charkraborty on chat shows such as these, it brings home the reason why they may have been so popular during their heyday. Mr. Chakraborty was funny, self effacing and engaging on the show. He had some rather funny anecdotes to share. As audience members as well as a bizarrely dressed Palak danced to his famous songs, you could see him visibly blanch but he was quite a good sport, shaking a leg with his fans.
Subhash Ghai also had some interesting anecdotes to share with the audience and came across as something of a disciplinarian when on the sets – apparently when his female lead cries on the sets (as apparently did Mishti, the lead for Kaanchi) the film does well. The fate of the film will soon tell whether that superstition holds. The two young leads of the film had little to do – the personalities of the two veterans were clearly very overpowering.
As always, here is another past full episode of Comedy Nights with Kapil – this one features Jeetendra, yet another charmer of old – it also features his son, but in terms of personality, he seems rather outclassed. Enjoy.
