Star Plus Denies Telecast Of Comedian Mimicking PM Modi And Eliminated Him Two Episodes Later

The Great Indian Laughter Challenge has been in the limelight, for all the wrong reasons.


Comedian Shyam Rangeela was actually called to participate on the show and hadn’t auditioned for it. His video of mimicking Prime Minister Narendra Modi has gone viral on social media. The video is from the skit he performed on the show and it is hilarious. Rangeela told The Wire.

“Almost a month after the episode was originally recorded, I got a phone call from the production team of the reality show asking me to shoot a new act because the channel decided to not air it,”

He also mentioned that two of his scripts involved making fun of Modi were rejected.

“The production team told me that the decision to not air my act was taken because the channel feared that it will offend some people and they might protest against them,” He was then told to re-record his act without mimicking Modi. “They said you can’t mimic Modi but you can do Rahul Gandhi, I thought, ok, at least they are letting me do something, I can salvage something. But later they told me I can’t do Rahul either.”

Here’s the viral video:

Here’s Shyam telling his story:

Unfortunately, he was eliminated from the show after 2 episodes.

We all know that mimicry is way too hot to handle.
