New Delhi, July 27 (ANI): Looks like fun in ' Comedy Nights Bachao' is no more that funny for the guests, hence the 'Dishoom' team preferred giving it a miss during promotional activities for the movie.

According to a DNA report, there were reports of Akshay Kumar being miffed with the hosts for their racist jokes against Lisa Haydon when they had gone to promote 'Housefull 3.' So this time producer Sajid Nadiadwala refused Jacqueline Fernandez, John Abraham and Varun Dhawan to attend the show.

According to a source, "It's producer Sajid Nadiadwala's decision. He did not like what his stars Jacqueline and Lisa Haydon had been subjected to when they had gone to promote Housefull 3 along with Akshay Kumar and Riteish Deshmukh. So, this time he has told his stars Varun, John and Jackie to not go on the show. Why should they be going to promote their film on a show and get embarrassed?"

However, Jacqueline will soon be seen judging dance reality show 'Jhalak Dikhla Jaa' on the same channel. (ANI)
