Star One's Laughter Ke Phatke will see a format change that will be brought into effect in the coming episodes.
The production team and channel were forced to go for a change, when host Sudesh Lahiri expressed his unavailability to continue as host of the show, due to date problems.
According to our source, "The creative team made use of this development to change the format. The show from now on, will have a permanent set of judges in Mona Singh and Kapil Sharma. Every episode will have two stand up comedians pitted against each other with few of the known faces of television supporting them. Jennifer Winget will continue to be the sole host of the show. The twin sisters Alina and Sana Wadiwalla who played Hansi and Khushi in the show will also not be seen".
When contacted, Jennifer confirmed the news and said, "Yes, I will continue as the only host of the show. The show has gone thro' a format change. There will be two acts in each episode, and Mona and Kapil Sharma will be seen as judges".
It is heard that Srikant Maski, Sugandha, Jaswant Singh, Sunil Sawra, Balraj and Albela/Deepak Raja will be the permanent stand up comedians seen in the show from now on.
We tried calling Mona Singh, but she remained unavailable.
Let's see what the duo of Mona and Kapil can bring to the show!!
