The Buzz in the town is about a new reality show on Star Plus, tentatively titled Comedy Ka Maha Muqabla, produced by Reliance Big Productions. The show is a comedy reality show, with a unique concept. Big names that were touted to be part of the show were Arshad Warsi, Raveena Tandon, Boman Irani and Sohail Khan.
The latest we hear is that Shekhar Suman, who was recently seen in Sony TV's Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa as a participant has joined the team as one of the mentors.
Talking about the structure of the show our source reveals, "There won't be any stand up comedy in groups; each group will be lead by one mentor and they will be the judges for the other groups. The initial in-house practice has already started, and the show will go on floor in few days".
We hear that Boman Irani who was to be part of the show as one of the mentors has backed out due to date problems.
When contacted, Boman confirmed the news and said, "I would say the channel had never ever approached me for any of the comedy reality shows".
Shekhar Suman confirmed his presence in the show, "I am part of the Comedy Reality show on Star Plus".
We also hear that Sohail Khan is not fully finalized, and the other name that is being considered is that of actor Shreyas Talpade.
