Not a competitor of Kapil Sharma: Deven Bhojani
Actor-director Deven Bhojani, set to entertain the audiences in the new comedy show "Bh se Bhadey!", says he is not trying to pose any sort of competition to popular stand-up comedian Kapil Sharma.
"Kapil Sharma and Raju Srivastav, they are amazing actors. I am a huge fan of them and not a competitor," Deven told reporters here Thursday at the launch of his show.
Kapil came into the limelight after winning the third season of "The Great Indian Laughter Challenge" and since then there has been no looking back for him.
His debut comedy show "Comedy Nights With Kapil", which went on-air in June this year, has not only been appreciated by the audience, but is a hit among celebrities too. Shah Rukh Khan and Akshay Kumar came twice on his show and it has become the highest rated show in the non-fiction category after "Bigg Boss" and "Kaun Banega Crorepati".
"I laugh whole-heartedly whenever I see him (Kapil) doing comedy. I enjoy watching him," Deven added.
Deven, who has shown his comic skills in the comedy shows like "Office-Office" and "Dekh Bhai Dekh", said: "We all are artists and only know to appreciate each other."
"Bh se Bhadey!" will go on-air Oct 26 on Zee TV. In the show, Deven will be seen as the protagonist, who has supernatural powers.
Talking about the show, he said it will appeal to all age groups.
"Today, there are very few comedy shows that we can watch sitting along with our families, but as far as our show is concerned, it will appeal to everyone right from the kids to the youngsters, middle-aged and even old aged - all age groups," Deven said.
"We will wind up the show's each episode with a light message. It won't be preachy... the audience will love it," he added.
