"Comedy Nights With Kapil", one of Indian television's most popular comedy shows, shot an episode with Ajay Devgn, Tabu and Shriya Saran. But host Kapil Sharma was replaced by Arshad Warsi. 

Kapil is on a break and has been advised bed rest, and Arshad has taken over for now.  

Several names including Karan Johar, Riteish Deshmukh and Arjun Kapoor came up for the role, but the celebs denied the rumours on social media.

The "Guddu Rangeela" actor shot his first episode as the host of "CNWK" with the team of "Drishyam" and they appeared to have fun. 

"OMG.. Had an Awesome time with Ajay D, Tabu & Shriya Saran at Comedy Night's with Kapil. I hosted the show, hope you like it," tweeted Warsi.

"Just want to thank @KapilSharmaK9 for letting me experience the fun he has on his show. Had a super time with his super crew," he added. 

Meanwhile, several pictures of the episode are doing the rounds on the internet.

"Drishyam" has created buzz since the beginning as it is a Malayalam remake, which featured Mohanlal and Meena in the leads.

The Jeethu Joseph directorial was a commercial success in Kerala and was later remade in other South Indian languages. Recently, the Tamil remake, "Papanasam", starring Kamal Haasan and Gauthami, opened to positive reviews.

Slated for a release on 31 July, the Hindi version is about Vijay Salgaonkar (Ajay Devgn), a cable operator, and his family.
