The Kapil Sharma Show: Ali Asgar’s seductive act miffed AR Rahman
Highly embarrassed with Ali Asgar’s seductive act on the comedy show, ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’, music maestro AR Rahman warned Ali Asgar not to touch him. Ali is a popular character on Kapil’s comedy show. In almost all the episodes, he gets seductive with his guests amusingly and he has done similar act when AR Rahman appeared on the show. But this time the makers failed to judge the liking and disliking of his guest. AR Rahman is a very totally private, media-shy and less talkative person. He lets his work talk on every show and when Ali tried to get physical with him jokingly, he got miffed and warned him not to touch.
When Rahman was the special guests on the show, on that particular episode Ali Asgar was dressed as a Lucknowi begum and did some seductive act on Rahman like heaving bosom, lip-biting, sliding over him. The music maestro looked hugely embarrassed when Ali tried to get too close too him, Rahman actually lost his cool had to warn the comedian, “No touching!”
Rahman totally shocked on being on the show and experiencing such things. Says a friend of his, “You can fool around with the Great Grand Masti team. But you can’t apply the same humour to Rahman. As a host, Kapil Sharma had not even done his basic homework. He said Rangeela was the maestro’s first composition and that he had scored music in all of Ashutosh Gowariker’s films. Both are misrepresentations of facts. It was insulting to see Ali do his drag act on Rahman. It is doubtful we’ll get to see him on another television show in the near future.”When contacted, Ali maintained “I agree there’s a difference between Rahman and other guests. But he was just uncomfortable with anyone touching him. Otherwise he enjoyed himself. A lot of the footage was edited. This Begum is an incorrigible flirt. She flirts with everyone. And the bigger the celebrity, the more flirtatious she gets.”
