I’m totally shocked that colors have removed all the episodes of comedy nights with Kapil from their official youtube channel and as well as from their official site. The official channel (verified) on youtube has now Zero videos, they deleted all of them.
Now if you want to watch old episodes of comedy nights, you can’t only the episodes which are uploaded by nonofficial channel can be viewed and even I think colors will put a copyright on them also, so they’ll be removed soon! That’s totally shocking news for comedy nights lovers
The reason behind this is, Colors clash with comedian kapil Sharma. The colors CEO is also angry of Kapil that how he hosted other shows when he has a contract with Kapil?
Here is official statement from Raj Nayak, Colors CEO on why comedy nights went off on AIR:
Kapil Sharma was on television for over 10 years, first on Laughter Challenge and then on Comedy Circus before he did Comedy Nights with us. He is a nice person and is extremely talented. We gave him a platform and co-created Comedy Nights with him. It was the channel’s decision to call it Comedy Nights With Kapil (originally the show was to be titled Comedy Nights), as we felt that it would give him a sense of ownership and his loyalty to the show would be 100%.
We even helped him set up his production company . The success of the show meant that we had a person who suddenly became a star and found it difficult to manage his success. He started renegotiating and asking for more money which we gave, but the more important and worrying thing was that he violated his contract by hosting shows on competitive channels in spite of having an exclusive contract with Colors for TV , which we felt was not ethical.
Well, the decision is really bad and I’m feeling sad for Kapil fans. Hope they restore the channel. Do share your views below in comments.
