Set Max - ‘MAX Fully Deewana Contest’
Optimystix is producing MAX Fully Deewana Contest, Kiku and Krushna not quitting their shows
The media in the frenzy to dish out exclusive news at a rapid pace often tends to miss out on pivotal information.
Something similar happened when many publications reported that comedian-actor Krushna Abhishek is launching his own comic show on Set Max, where conceptually he will tread the path of popular show on Colors, Kapil Sharma’s Comedy Nights with Kapil.
The reports also mentioned (which apparently stemmed from agency reporting), that Kiku Sharda, currently seen in Comedy Nights, will in most probability quit the Colors show and join hands with Krushna.
Well, we are here to mention that yes, Krushna and Kiku will be seen together in their funny avatars at a show on Set Max titled, ‘MAX Fully Deewana Contest’, but the project is not being produced by Krushna and Kiku is certainly not quitting Comedy Nights with Kapil. Furthermore, Krushna will continue his association with Comedy Circus (Sony TV), contrary to reports of him moving out of the show.
Here’s the real dope.
The show will be produced by Optimystix Productions and will air from 9 February to 22 February at 9pm.
The venture will basically be a contest which will be aired during the 9pm movie breaks. Kiku and Krushna will take turns and appear during the breaks to interact with the viewers via funny gags.
For more clarity and confirmation on the story, we buzzed Krushna but he kept busy. However, his better half and live-in partner Kashmira Shah shared, “Well, Krushna is a part of the show but it is not his own show. Krushna is very much a part of Comedy Circus (also produced by optimystix)and he will never quit this Sony product. It is his landmark show. He doesn’t have to follow people. Other than being a good comedian, Krushna is also a very talented actor. He is not in the rat race and is happy being a part of Comedy Circus. He is very loyal to the show and will always remain so.”
Next we buzzed Kiku, who also went on to state, “Yes, it is Optimystix who is coming with the show on Set Max. They will run a small contest between the movies where Krushna and I will play different types of gags and ask questions to viewers. The show’s span is a small one and it is more of a way to market your product. But strangely people have misunderstood the development and wrote about me quitting Comedy Nights with Kapil. Kapil called me in the morning asking me about it. I just laughed out loud and told him to chill. I love Kapil Sharma and his show.”
We smsed producer Vipul D Shah (Optimystix) to get a confirmation but he did not revert till the time of filing the story. However, a channel source did corroborate that the show has been commissioned to Optimystix.
