Shekhar Suman No More in Comedy Circus

Can anyone believe Comedy Circus without Shekhar Suman and Archana Puran Singh? Believe it or not, Shekhar Suman will not be seen in the next session of the popular TV show Comedy Circus. While other two judges, Archana Puran Singh and Rohit Shetty, will continue to work with the show.

Buzz is that, the channel has approached Rajkumar Hirani, Boman Irani, Rajkumar Santoshi and David Dhawan as possible replacements for Shekhar, but all four have turned down the offer. On this part, Shekhar says,

“We haven’t negotiated on the next season, so I guess the channel is free to consider other options. Frankly, it is necessary to keep changing people to impart a new flavour to the show.”

On his part, Shekhar says, “I’ll be making films now. First Vidroh, then I’ll produce a remake of the 2007 Hollywood film Awake, and finally a biopic on Jai Prakash Narain, which I’m likely to direct. I’ll also play JP.”
