But be that as may, Comedy Nights Bachao host Krushna Abhishek is in no mood to back down. In an interview to DNA, Krushna accused Tannishtha of not watching the show before coming and hence having no prior idea about it. He also said that the actress was kicking up a storm in order to hog the limelight,because he was giving more importance to her co-star Radhika Apte.

Tannishtha is going overboard. She is doing this for publicity. We always meet the actors before they come on the show. I had asked her if she had seen the show before and if she was familiar with our (roast) concept. She said she hadn’t seen the show. She hadn’t watched even AIB Roast. If she didn’t know what it was, she shouldn’t have come on the show. Secondly, we gave more importance to Radhika Apte who is a bigger star. That must have also been a problem for Tannishtha.

He also added that he did not call Tannishtha “kaali kalooti” but also that such humour was part of a roast.

I didn’t say that and I don’t know who said that. In any case, it is a roast format aur hamne wahi masti ki jo hamesha karte hai. In fact, we have toned it down from what it was earlier. Initially, she was enjoying, but after a while she told us she doesn’t like this kind of mass humour. Neither Radhika nor Leena had any problems with our comments. In fact, they were laughing and while going, both Radhika and Leena hugged me and danced with me.
