"Comedy Nights With Kapil", one of India's most-watched television shows, serves as a platform for Bollywood celebrities to promote their films.

Among the celebrity guests invited to the show are Shah Rukh Khan, Hrithik Roshan, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Priyanka Chopra, Deepika Padukone and a few others.

But this time, the has show made an exception with "Jackpot" star Sunny Leone. According to reports, show host Kapil Sharma is not willing to share the stage with the porn star-turned-actress because of her past.

Kapil has maintained that "Comedy Nights With Kapil" is a family-oriented program. The funnyman hasn't revealed the exact reason for not inviting her to the show.

"Superstar Shahrukh Khan doesn't mind working with her, B-town hunk John Abraham has grooved with her but a certain Kapil Sharma isn't willing to share the stage with former adult actor Sunny Leone. Yes, we have learnt that Kapil did not want the Jism 2 actor on his popular show Comedy Nights with Kapil coz of her not-so-glorious past. Now that's sad, isn't it?" Bollywoodlife.com reported.

Surprisingly, the funnyman was thrilled to share the stage and dance with Leone during "Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa Season 6".

Leone is an adult star-turned-Bollywood actress and made her Bollywood debut with "Jism 2". In an interview with The Times of India, Leone said she stopped working as a porn star before entering television reality show "Bigg Boss". It seems the actress can't shake off her past image.
