Upasna Singh is quite unhappy with the way things have shaped after she owed allegiance to Colors channel over the team of Kapil Sharma. Television’s most loved Pinky Bua is now up in arms against the makers of Comedy Nights Live for using her name to garner TRPs, non-payment and giving her a bad script. She called the show “dead”.
“Yes, I have quit Comedy Nights Live . I am not shooting for it since last two weeks and don’t wish to go back toComedy Nights Live.”
Upasna was the only character, and a rather major one, to stay back with the channel when Colors and the team of Kapil Sharma had a public fallout earlier this year. While Kapil easily shifted base to Sony channel and returned with his new show (but with his same old team) The Kapil Sharma Show, Upasna ended up regretting her decision. She has now decided to drag the production house to the court for delaying her agreement and non-payment of her salary.
“They did not give me the agreement even after four months of working with them. When I finally got the agreement, there were so many terms and conditions that I couldn’t believe. The agreement said I could not do another comedy show. It also said they could kick me out of the show in 24 hours. Surprisingly, it did not have the terms and conditions we had agreed upon. I told them if you could kick me out of the show in 24 hours, I should also be able to quit the show by giving 24 hrs notice. I have made a huge mistake by committing to this show.”
Now that she has quit the show, do we see her reuniting with her old team?
“I have always had a good rapport with Kapil Sharma. I had an amazing time working with them. I became popular as Bua because of Comedy Nights with Kapil. My character on CNWK gave me work satisfaction. Now, I am in such a position that I don’t have to prove myself to anyone. I just want to do stuff that gives me work satisfaction. So, if something concrete and meaty is offered to me from Kapil’s side I will definitely do it. I don’t want to do a cameo just for the heck of it.”
Upasna had in the past done films like Judaai, Loafer, Badal and Aitraaz. But she became a household name with CNWK. Yes, we love her more as the “22 years old hot and saaxy girl…”
