The makers and the channel are leaving no stone unturned in bringing back the iconic series in a grand manner. The mentors confirmed for the show are Zakhir Khan, Mallika Dua and Hussain Dalal. The show is set to go on air by September end. 

The buzz is that the original comedy series on television The Great Indian Laughter Challenge is all set to make a comeback on television with Akshay Kumar.

While the show has revised the concept of judging by introducing captains who will be mentoring and training their respective team, we will witness Akshay as the ‘super boss’ of the show.

According to sources, the makers had signed actress Elli Avram as the host but are currently rethinking their decision. A source from the production house said, “It’s a laughter show and we have had screen tests and rehearsals with our mentors and host Elli.

We now feel she doesn’t fit the bill and isn’t able to pull off Hindi as required for the show. We’re now in talks with Sunil Grover and working on the dates. If all goes well, we will have him as the host.”
