Just days ago we told you that Comedy Nights Bachao was going off air but only to return soon with its next season. The way its cast members Anita Hasnandani and Karan Wahi bid farewell to the sets, also hinted that the show is set for a major revamp. Colors confirmed to indianexpress.com that Comedy Nights Bachao 2 is just weeks away. But there is some more exciting stuff for you to know. We got in touch with Colors and got to know some exciting new things that the new season of Comedy Nights Bachao has in store. Read on.
1. Mona Singh will replace Krushna Abhishek and Bharti Singh.
Agreed, Krushna and Bharti had a great camaraderie as the show’s hosts. But keeping up with Bachao and Comedy Nights Live simultaneously was getting difficult for the duo. Hence, it was a planned decision for them to give up hosting the show. In fact, Krushna and Bharti are the only two faces from the previous cast who have been retained. But now they will perform gags along with other actors. Mona who is already a popular face is stepping into their shoes. She has earlier hosted Entertainment Ke Liye Kuch Bhi Karega with Krushna. And we don’t doubt her skills to host the show single-handedly.
2. The entire gang of actors on the show has been shuffled.
We knew that Anita Hasnandani and Karan Wahi are no longer a part of the show. But we didn’t know that the whole cast is being changed. The new team will boast of fresh names like Ssharad Malhotra, Sumeet Vyas, Nia Sharma, Aditi Bhatia and Gujarati stand-up comedian Mayank. While we have mostly seen these actors in their serious avatars, it is going to be exciting to see them doing comedy too.
3. The second season will also have a completely new format.
New host. New faces. And definitely a new format too. Unlike the earlier one, this might not have the ‘roast’ element. And if we tell you it will be on the lines of Comedy Circus, don’t be surprised. It means it will get away with the set-up where celebrities sat on a couch and saw themselves being made fun of. Apparently, many Bollywood stars stayed away from appearing on the show because of its roast structure as they were not comfortable. We heard Akshay Kumar refused to come and promote his Rustom due to the same reason. Even superstar Amitabh Bachchan has refused to become a guest so far. But the makers are now looking to get all those whom they missed on the first season to appear now.
4. The season will kick off with Prabhu Deva and Sonu Sood as its first guests.
The duo who are out promoting their upcoming film Tutak Tutak Tutiya, has agreed to become the first guests on the new season. Even singer Hans Raj hHanswill accompany them.
While we still await the channel to confirm its telecast date, some reports suggest Comedy Nights Bachao 2 will premiere on September 25.
