Already in its fourth week, the Great Indian Laughter Challenge is getting popular appreciation with reference to the freshness of content – contestants like Nitesh Shetty and Abhay Sharma have managed to strike a chord with the audiences, with their own brand of wit and charm.
After thorough grooming and pruning by the mentors Zakir Khan, Mallika Dua, Hussain Dalal and the Super Judge Akshay Kumar himself, the show is all set to unveil its 12 best contestants and enter phase two of the competition, which commences October 28.
The stakes will be high in this phase, as the contestants move from the Audition Phase to the performance arena. In this phase, the expectations will be higher and so will the competition.
As per the format of the shows, in this phase, the role of the mentors will come to an end, and the contestants will now have to impress two other judges – television’s favourite entertainer and noted film director, Sajid Khan, and the critically acclaimed actor, Shreyas Talpade – who will join Akshay Kumar, to make a potent judging unit, selecting India’s next superstars of Comedy.
Commenting on the above the show’s Producer Ashvini Yardi mentioned, “After the several auditions we held across the country, we are now at a critical stage of the show wherein the real competition begins. We would like to thank our mentors Zakir Khan, Mallika Dua and Hussain Dalal for selecting and giving us our final contestants. To take the competition from here onwards we now move from our mentors to our judges Sajid Khan and Shreyas Talpade and our very own super judge Akshay Kumar.”
The first episode with Sajid and Shreyas will be shot on Oct 18th.
The show airs every Saturday-Sunday at 8pm, only on STAR Plus.
