Comedy Nights Bachao seems to be plagued by one controversy after the other. After actress Tanishtha Chatterjee walked out of the show last month when host Krushna Abhishek made jokes of her dark complexion, the show has now apparently miffed John Abraham.
John was recently on the set of the show along with Sonakshi Sinha to promote their upcoming film Force 2. While things were fine in the beginning and the stars were taking most of the jokes coming their way nicely, things started going downhill when Krushna made jibes at John’s performance in Paap.Sonakshi and John on sets of the show with co-host Bharti Singh.

Speaking to Bombay Times, Krushna said, "I was cracking jokes on his earlier films like Paap. That's when he told me that those were his favourite films. Sometime later, when he refused to shake a leg with Sonakshi and me on stage, I realised that he was upset. He soon walked out and I ran after him, but he left. I want to apologise to him; I haven't slept since the last few days because of this."
Krushna said he is apologetic that John got offended by his jokes and that he considers the actor as a friend and a genuine person.
Comedy Nights Bachao Taaza is a show that invites celebrity guests on the show and roasts them. In the past Tanishtha Chatterjee walked out of show mid-way as she was upset that the jokes were made on her skin colour. The actress had come to the show to promote her film Parched.
