Feb 13, 2010 (Calcutta Tube): Ali Asgar was a surprise package for all the viewers along with Jr. Bachchan (Abhishek Bachchan) in Colors new venture ‘National Bingo Night’. But it seems that Ali is no more a part of show and thus, has parted ways with Bingo!
Our little birdie from the set informs, “Ali Asgar is on the verge to quit this show due to his commitments for another show FIR that is on-air on SAB TV and the channel has also approached Krushna- the comedian who was lastly seen in Comedy Circus (Sony TV). But apparently things did not work out with Krushna due the date issues.”
“Now the buzz is that after the negative response from Krushna, the channel approached another comedy king of television and Bollywood, Vrajesh Hirjee who is seen in ‘Shree Adi Manav’ (SAB TV),” adds the source.
Thus we called Vrajesh Hirjee and he confirmed the news, “Yes! I am shooting for ‘Bingo’ with Abhishek, till now I have shot for five episodes at Baroda. It is great fun to work in ‘Bingo’ and with Jr. Bachchan.”
Well Vrajesh how did you manage to juggle between ‘Shree Adi Manav’ and ‘Bingo’?
“Well ‘Bingo’ and ‘Shree Adi Manav’ both are weekly and not daily soaps. So I get time to adjust with both the lovely shows,” signs off the actor cheerfully.
We tried to contact Ali, but he didn’t revert!
So, viewers get ready to enjoy a new comic jodi only on Bingo!
