Official: Krushna Abhishek is not replacing Kapil Sharma on Comedy Nights

All of a sudden, Comedy Nights with Kapil (CNWK) seems to be hogging headlines. Much has been said about the future of the show - including news of the popular show going off air, to the show moving to another channel, to even rumours of Kapil Sharma being replaced with fellow comedian Krushna Abhishek.

However, when Catch contacted Krushna Abhishek's team, they denied the news.

"No. Nothing of this sort is happening. The team is not aware about it," an official of Krushna's team said.

The actor is currently busy with Comedy Nights Bachao, an Indian version of Hollywood's celebrity roasts. The show also features Sudesh Lehri, Bharti Singh, Shruti Seth, Shakil Siddiqui, Karan Wahi and Adaa Khan, among other popular telly faces.

If rumours are to be believed, Comedy Nights Bachao is proving to be a stiff competitor to Kapil Sharma's show. Krushna's show has reportedly surpassed CNWK's massive TRP figures.

We think both the TV shows have their set of viewers, who will prove to be loyal followers of the show. What is your take on this war of the comedians?
