Actor-comedian Krushna Abhishek wants megastar Amitabh Bachchan as a guest on his upcoming show "The Drama Company". Krushna, who has done successful comedy series such as "Comedy Nights Bachao", "Comedy Classes" and "Comedy Circus", is excited about his new show "The Drama Company". "I would like to have Mr Amitabh Bachchan on our show. Now his show 'Kaun Banega Crorepati' is also coming up and I am excited for that and I would request him to come on our show (for promotions)," Krushna told PTI. The actor-comedian says he couldn't invite Big B to be a part of the shows that he did earlier as they were not 'clean' in humour. "No, we haven't approached him in the past. We couldn't invite him for 'Comedy Nights Bachao' as the format of the show is different and he is a different personality. Now on 'The Drama Company', I would want him to come as it is a family show." The show will air on Sony Entertainment channel, while Krushna's rival, Kapil Sharma's popular comedy show 'The Kapil Sharma Show' is also telecast on the same channel. When asked about the comparisons between the two, he says, "I don't think there are any comparisons between us. It is up to people whether they want to compare us or not.
There is no competition between us as we are doing shows on the same channel. We never discuss about Kapil or what is happening on his show. We focus on our own work." "The Drama Company" is all set to premiere its first episode on July 16 and the other cast members on the show include Ali Asgar, Sanket Bhonsle, Sungandha Mishra, Sudesh Lehri, Ridhima Pandit among others. Veteran Bollywood actor Mithun Chakraborty will also be a part of the show. "I am excited and nervous to be with him (Mithun) in the same show. I know him since a very long time. It is for the first time that dada is coming on a show and that too comedy so I am excited to see him on the small screen. He has lot of positive energy, his presence lights up the mood, he gives us lot of confidence, he is enjoying a lot," he says.
