Turns out, the show where Akshay Kumar along with the mentors discover new comedians, has scored low on TRPs. Star Plus, who telecast the show, were unhappy with the number and the makers decided to shake things up.

Mallika, Zakir and Hussain are all internet sensations but their popularity did not translate to the small screen it seems. So the makers decided to bring in famous faces.

Sajid and Shreyas will now mentor the contestants.

Sajid has helmed rib ticklers like Housefull, which also starred Akshay Kumar and Shreyas is one of the funniest actors in Bollywood who will soon be seen in Golmaal Again.

Mallika, who starred in Bindass’ web series- The Trip along with Lisa Haydon, has many viral videos under her belt. She has also collaborated with AIB to churn out some hilarious content on social media. Zakir Khan too is a big name in the world of stand-up comedians. Like Mallika Dua, Zakir Khan has also worked with AIB in a few videos.

But their brand of humour did not seem to connect with the audiences. Let’s see if Sajid and Shreyas can save the sinking ship.
