Sumona Chakravarti was recently asked about her absence from The Great Indian Kapil Show. To this, the actress told the news agency, "I don’t have an answer to this. The show that I was part of, which was on another channel, ended last year in July. Since then, I’ve been on my own journey, doing my own things, networking, and meeting people."

Having said that, the actress mentioned how people missed seeing her on the screen. Sumona added that the audiences' willingness to see her motivates her to do something different. Recalling the time she was in London last year, Sumona met many Indians who told that they liked her in the TV show Bade Achhe Lagte Hain.

"It’s really nice to see the love coming whether it’s for Bade Achhe… or Comedy Nights. It’s great and you know you are doing something right. Nobody expected me to do well in comedy," she added.
