Tannishtha Chatterjee who was promoting her movie, ‘Parched’ with her director Leena Yadav and co-star Radhika Apte on ‘Comedy Nights Bachao Tazaa’ faced a lot of heat and stormed out of the TV show. Tannishtha has won global acclaim for films like ‘Brick lane’ was asked if she has had ‘jamuns’ her entire childhood and was described as “Kaali Kalooti” by the hosts of the show.
Tannishtha quoted “I had been led to believe that it was going to be a ‘roast’. In the west they cheer your achievements by making fun of them and I was excited on being roasted on a comedy show on a leading national channel”. However she was shocked at the jibes taken at her complexion and after shooting two segments she walked out of the show. ‘Comedy Nights Bachao Tazaa’ has been involved in drama with Bollywood celebs like Akshay Kumar and Lisa Haydon before too when Lisa was called a “Black African” and a “kangaroo”. Seems like Krushna and Bharti are taking roast to another level, aren’t they?
