Star Plus' Comedy Ka Maha Muqabla sees few more changes in the contestants' line-up...
After the replacements of Aashka Goradia
and Sudesh Lahiri with Sucheta Khanna
and Sudesh Bhonsle respectively, Star Plus
and Reliance Big Productions' Comedy Ka Maha Muqabla are bringing in few more forced replacements...
As per the latest, we hear that Arhaan Behll
who plays the protagonist Krishna in Star Plus
will no more be part of the show!! He is now being replaced by talented artist Rajesh Kumar
Arhaan was part of Shreyas Chi Mandli team. Another change that will be
seen in the coming episodes is that Ishtiyaak who was part of Shekhar
Ke Movers will make way for Suraj Thapar.
Our source states, "Arhaan Behll
could not continue to be part of the show, as he could not space it out
properly between his fiction show and the reality. He has been shooting
non-stop for long hours for Pratigya
and this meant that he did not have time to rehearse for Comedy Ka Maha
Muqabla. Going by Arhaan's popularity, he could not even be side-lined
with less dialogues in the reality show. Arhaan tried his best to work
out his timings, but he could not do so. A mutual decision has been
taken between him and the production house now, and he will not be part
of the show anymore".
"The format of the show is being modified
from the 9th episode onwards. A particular theme will be given to all
the teams, and that given theme will be a permanent one and every team
needs to bring in variations within the set theme", adds our source.
about the reason for Ishtiyak being replaced, our source informs us,
"Ishtiyak could not bring in variations in his act. As per the new
concept of the show, we needed contestants who can be more versatile who
are good at acting, singing as well as mimicry. Considering all this,
Sooraj Thapar has been brought in place of Ishtiyak".
When contacted, Rajesh Kumar
of Sarabhai V/s Sarabhai fame confirmed his presence in the show and
said, "Yes, I have stepped into Comedy Ka Maha Muqabla. Talks were on
for the past few days, and things got finalized last night. I have
started rehearsing for the show, I will be seen in Shreyas Chi Mandali.
Hope viewers love me in this show".
We tried hard to reach Arhaan Behll
and even sent his a text message, but he remained unavailable..
When contacted, Sooraj Thapar who is seen in Imagine
's Chandragupta Maurya
and Star Plus
' Sasural Genda Phool
said, "It is true that talks are on. But I have not yet signed the contract".
These changes will be seen in the 9th episode of the show...
Well, let's hope this marks the end of replacements in the big ticket reality show... Reporter: Tejashree Bhopatkar, Srividya Rajesh
