As its curtains down on Comedy Circus 2 a new comedy series Kaante Ki Takkar will air in the same time and day. Though produced by the same production house (Optymistix) on the same time slot (Saturday, 10 pm) for the same channel (Sony), Kaante Ki Takkar is not an extension to Comedy Circus 2. It is a new show with a new concept.
Kaante Ki Takkar will have the jodis of Comedy Circus 1 led by Archana Puran Singh Vs the jodis of Comedy Circus 2, led by Shekhar Suman. The team of Archana Puran Singh will be called The Purans whereas the team of Shekhar Suman will be called The Sumans. The Purans comprise of Urvashi Dholakia-Shakeel Siddiqui, VIP-Swapnil Joshi, and Khayali-Karishma Tanna. The Sumans comprise of Krushna Abhishek- Sudesh Lahiri, Rajiv Nigam-Rajesh Kumar and Kamya Punjabi- Rajeev Thakur.
The vibrant Archana Puran Singh and the peppy Shekhar Suman will be seen on the judge’s panel. The jodis will compete for the top position. Every week the judges and the studio audiences will nominate one jodi (with maximum marks) as the top jodi. They will be given a jeevan daan. Such a jodi cannot be eliminated in the next episode and they also have the right to eliminate any one jodi among the two nominated (with least marks) in that episode.
Producer of the show Vipul Shah said, “The competition in Kaante Ki..is going to be more aggressive and more heavy as it has the finalists of Comedy Circus 1 and Comedy Circus 2. The concept and the format is different altogether.”
Kaante Ki Takkar will be on air from September 6.
