New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…
Original story (published on August 09, 2021) follows:
If you’re a fan of cooking shows, you must have heard of Cooku with Comali. It is a comedy-infused cooking show that is aired on Star Vijay and is available for streaming on Disney+Hotstar.
Contestants on the show are paired with comedians, who are known as Comalis. Every week, the show’s judges Chef Damodaran and Chef Venkatesh Bhat challenge the contestants with their Comalis.
The main task involves a challenge that makes the cooking process harder for the contestants. Every team is assigned a timeframe that they have to adhere to.
Most of the cooking process is done by the Comalis. The show even features celebration rounds that skip the elimination process.
It seems that the show is watched by Indians in the USA too. Having said that, the latest celebration episode of Cooku with Comali Season 2 hasn’t been uploaded.
A lot of viewers have been complaining that Hotstar has not upheld its end of the deal.

We want to remind you that this is not the first time Hotstar has delayed the upload of Cooku with Comali. They did the same with the Season 1 finale.
Hotstar has clarified that due to some delay in receiving files from the production team, they were unable to upload the episode on time.
The company says they are working on the issue and will upload the episode as soon as possible.
This is really frustrating since Hotstar is a premium service. We think Hotstar should communicate with its customer base and keep them in the loop in case of any technical issues.
