Sony's gag show with a unique concept Dekh India Dekh will be undergoing a change in format starting July 4th, 2009.
The show saw popular television actors enacting gags donning various different avtars like Akbar and Birbal by Rajesh Kumar and Rajiv Nigam, Havaldar Kadam & Havaldar Kaale played by Ali Asghar & VIP; Baiju played by Krushna & Bawra by Sudesh Lahiri; Malti Manohar Mishra played by Gaurav Gera and Swapnil Joshi as the hen-pecked Jignesh Shah.
According to our source, "With the change in format, these artists go back to the comfort of stand-up comedy in the studio, but they will be seen in the same characters. With this, Shekar Suman who was seen hosting Dekh India Dekh will now be back as judge partnering Archana Puran Singh. This new format will see a new host in Shweta Gulati".
Our source informs us that the laughter riot has only gotten bigger with this new format, and will be devoid of eliminations.
Shweta Gulati confirmed the news and said, "Yes, I am hosting the show now. I am looking forward to this great experience, and am excited about it".
Tune in to the new environment of Dekh India Dekh this Saturday, July 4th, 2009 at 10 PM on Sony..
