Recently, the film, Parched hit the silver screens and has amazed the audience and the critics as well with the stellar performances and intriguing content. And the lead star cast of the film, Tannishtha Chatterjee and Radhika Apte along with the director, Leena Yadav were present on the Colors TV show, Comedy Nights Bachao and we told you how the things took a turn from there. A miffed Tannishtha chose to walk out of the sets after feeling bullied and listening to continuous “jokes” about her skin colour.
Tannishtha took to social media to vent out her frustration and expressed her opinion through Facebook.
ColorSomething has shocked me out of my wits yesterday. I was invited as a guest to a popular comedy show called comedy…
And now, after Tannishtha showed her displeasure to the Colors authorities regarding the matter, the channel immediately apologised and said, “It is rather unfortunate that what you had expected to be a fun and novel experience turned out to be traumatic for you on the sets of ‘Comedy Nights Bachao’. As a channel, COLORS has always focused on creating content that is meaningful and addresses pertinent social issues- skin colour bias- being one of them. As far as ‘Comedy Nights Bachao’ is concerned, we have ensured that the content is free from anything that may be deemed offensive. It was never our intention, nor a practice for us or the makers of the show to offend anyone at all with the jokes. We have taken this up seriously with the creative team and the Production House to ensure that the show is produced in line with the vision of the channel.”
