The departure of co-host Sunil Pal from Zee's Antakshari has left Himani Kapoor much happier and much relieved.
According to sources Sunil was no pal to Himani. Says a channel source, "Sunil had major ego issues with Himani from Day 1. He couldn't tolerate the fact that Himani was
the singer and therefore far more active as an achor on Antakshari.
Sunil is basically a comic talent. He was brought in for the laughs. He couldn't tolerate Himani
Himani shrugs, "I don't now what Sunil's problem was. But he bad-mouthed me everywhere saying he had to leave Antakshari because of me. When I asked him to explain,
he told me to forget it...That's exactly what I've done ever since Karan Oberoi came in to partner me in Sunil's place.
I'm finally having fun on the show. No more
tension. And because Karan is a singer I'm finally having fun singing duets for the contestants. Karan has me in splits. He's very entertaining both off and on camera. Even
his pjs are very funny."
