New Delhi, March 16 (IANS) Actress Sumona Chakravarti says that there is lot of trust and faith attached with Kapil Sharma and the team with whom she worked in “Comedy Nights With Kapil”, and this is the reason why she decided to join the gang for the star comedian’s new offering “The Kapil Sharma show”.
“There is a lot of faith and lot of trust with the team. There is a sense of comfort with the entire team. The show (‘Comedy Nights With Kapil’) got over… Kapil started with another show and I think it was generous on (the part of) Kapil and his team that they wanted me to continue being a part of their team.”
“It is almost like a reunion, because it is an old team and it is wonderful,” Sumona told IANS.
The actress, who played the role of Kapil Sharma’s wife in the Colors show, says that there is lot of expectation from audience, and so it will be challenging to be able to achieve that.
“I’m sure the audience has a lot of expectation because it is going to be a new show with lots of freshness. It is going to be challenging to do something that probably nobody is expecting. So to cross those expectations and to succeed in them, is quite challenging,” she said.
Meanwhile, Sumona, who has also featured in fiction TV shows like “Kasamh Se” and “Bade Achhe Lagte Hain”, is going to be a part of new show “Dubai Diaries”, to be aired on NDTV Good Times starting March 24.
The five-episode show will revolve around famous attractions, family fun and sports, fine dining, wedding shopping and couples getaway. Sumona will be anchoring it along with avid traveller Neha Dixit, fashion diva Ambika Anand, masterchef Kunal Kapur and actress Freishia Bomanbehram.
Sumona says the show’s journey was a fabulous experience.
“I think every actor has a wish in their life to once anchor a travel-based show and I am glad I am doing it on NDTV Good Times. It has been the first and the most exhilarating experience that I have had while shooting as an anchor,” she said.
Talking about her Dubai experience, she said: “I have visited that city very often before in the past so I knew a lot about it but there were aspects that I discovered this time.”
