In an exclusive chat with Ali, he speaks about his experience with Comedy Nights, handling two shows at the same and what he wishes to do in future.
When asked Ali about how did he bag the comedy show Comedy Nights with Kapil? He says, "Very honestly, I did not want to do this show because I was already doing Jeannie Aur Juju at that time. I had no dates for Comedy Nights with Kapil. But since I knew Kapil and the entire team so well that I took up the show. I thought it is just the matter of 26 episodes, they will end up soon. But never had I thought that Comedy Nights would do exceptionally well not only in India but also internationally."
As Ali is juggling between the two shows, he says that he just takes the shoots with ease and shoots for Jeannie Aur Juju in the day and Comedy Nights in the night, "I shoot for Jeannie aur Juju in the day and Comedy Nights at night and this has been happening since a year now. It is just because of God's grace that I have been able to handle two shows at the same time. I think Comedy Nights is a show that has totally changed the concept of comedy. It has given a new platform altogether. We have seen celebrities being judges for comedy show but the concept of interaction between the celebs and the audiences is something that has never been witnessed in India. Indeed, hard work pays!"
Ali is quite content to play different characters in the show Jeannie Aur Juju as he says, "Juju is a character that has given me the opportunity to do quadrille role. I do not think the main lead of any show has got such a chance. I think I have set a record of doing four roles together (laughs). Jeannie aur Juju is getting over soon so I am not taking any other show in hand for now. I only want to concentrate on Comedy Nights."
Truly, doing two shows together and getting acknowledged worldwide for both the shows is something that is seen very rarely. TellyBuzz wishes you all the luck Ali!
