When Ali Asghar came on stage yesterday at the launch of The Drama Company in Filmistan, he was the cynosure of all eyes. Loved as the alcoholic Daadi and flirtatious Begum on Kapil's shows, he will be seen as a man here. It is something Mithun Chakraborty found hard to digest and told him that he loved him as a woman. The man obviously was bombarded with a number of questions relating to his exit from The Kapil Sharma Show. Ali, took the opportunity and came out clean like never before.
When we sat down with him, he explained elaborately, "I was surprised. Bahut saari baatein mere mudde se mere logon tak nahi pahuchayi gayi thi (There were a number of things which I did not speak upon, all related to me). Aur iss baat ko kaafi uchala ja raha hai (My silence was being speculated on). Mera koi jhagda naa hua, naa to mera koi jhagda hain (I did not have a fight nor do I have an enemity). I parted ways because I was not happy how my character was progressing or shaping up. I was not getting a proper answer from the team. Australia jaaane se pehle maine bata diya ki I won't be a part of it, mera contract renew mat karna (Before leaving for Australia, I told them not to renew my contract as I am not happy)."
Ali further said when they returned, his contract was on the verge of ending. It was terminating on April 23 and some unfortunate incident happened. He says he took ill once he was back from Australia and was on bed rest for 12 days. He says he informed the team that his contract is over. He says that if he just left without informing the channel would not have spared him. Ali maintains he had a proper reason but the matter was blown out of proportion and gossip spread around like wild fire.
Talking about Kapil, Ali said, "I have never been part of any controversy. Kapil is my colleague. We worked together for four years. I have learnt from him. I cannot think badly about him or anyone. I am fond of him." He says he did not comment then as it would fuel gossip and thought it would be wiser to stay mum. He said he has his reasons to be quiet.
