Ali Asgar has at last talked about the reason that made him quit the well-known comedy show, The Kapil Sharma Show. He has said that he was not creatively satisfied as his character was not growing. He added that Kapil may not know why he chose to quit, adding that it was around the same time when Sunil Grover and Kapil had an ugly fight.
Ali Asgar said that he was not creatively satisfied, as his role (Naani) was not growing. Sadly, the occurrence among Kapil and Sunil occurred around that time. “We missed each other’s calls back then and there was a communication gap. With time, both of us moved on. But I am happy that I was a part of it and I learned a lot from him. I will always respect him. He understands the pulse of the audience and knows how to hold a show,” Ali told ETimes.
He also added, “I completely agree that I couldn’t recreate the success in projects that followed. Ho sakta hai shows mein woh baat nahi thi ya performance mein kuchh kami hogi (Maybe the shows lacked something, or maybe my performance was not upto the mark). Complaining about it is a futile exercise. There is always a lot to analyse. However, I don’t have any regrets. I had a reason to quit the show and it wasn’t an overnight decision. I didn’t have much to do on the show. If the intent was to earn money, I would have still continued on the show.”
Ali has since worked in numerous shows such as The Drama Company, Kanpur Wale Khuranas, Zee Comedy Show, and Akbar Ka Bal Birbal, among others. He has likewise worked in numerous movies, including recent ones like Judwaa 2 and Pagalpanti. He will soon be seen in the forthcoming season of Jhalak Dikhlaa Jaa.
