As per the report in News18, Ali Asgar shared an incident during the time he was a part of The Kapil Sharma Show. He said, “One day while we were eating on a Saturday, we saw an advertisement that said ‘Ali and (another actor) are working together. While Ali will be seen as ‘Bahu’, the other actor will be a cop’. My son (Nuyaan) just looked at me and asked, ‘Aapko aur kuch aata nahi hai (Don’t you know anything else at all)?’”
Ali Asgar further added, “I asked (to son), ‘Why? What happened?’ And, he told me, ‘Everyone teases me in the school’. I ignored it and when in Sunday’s episode, I again acted as a female, he walked out. That’s when I realised maybe I should not do it.”
Ali also shared that after quitting the show, he was out of work for nine months as all funny female characters similar to his Nani and Dadi came to him.
