Farhad Samji is all set to direct a one-of-a-kind comedy special for Disney+ Hotstar. Pop Kaun is the upcoming Hotstar Specials to be released on the OTT platform soon. After announcing the series on March 1, the makers have now dropped a promo video featuring the iconic Saurabh Shukla and the legendary Indian comedian Johnny Lever.
The latest promo video sees both the actors sitting together on a railway track up on the bridge like the way Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan did in a sequence in Pathaan. Both the actors can be seen thinking about comedy and its future with utter seriousness. "I can't do it anymore. Sometimes, I think that it has been 30 long years, now, I should just leave it. I am talking about comedy. But who will take our place?" asks Lever with a sad expression, while Shukla interrupts him and says, "We can think about that guy who invites people on television."
The Golmaal Again actor disagrees with his fellow mate and advice about another comedian and says that he is outstanding, to which Shukla contradicts.
Moving on, the two seem very conflicted with each other's ideas, while Lever says, "It is the matter of country's comedy, we cannot leave it on the kids. We only need to do something." Shukla agrees with his friend but asks how is it possible, to which the legendary comedian replies, "like this," and the title of the show 'Pop Kaun?' appears on the montage.
The makers dropped the latest official montage with a special caption on YouTube that reads, "Kursi ki peti baandh lijiye mausam bigadne nahi, comedy hone wala hai! #HotstarSpecials #PopKaun #ComingSoon (sic)."
