Dressed as a ghost and an alien, two actors can be seen hosting the third season of I Laugh U. On closer scrutiny one understands that the two actors are Kanchan Mullick as the Ghost and Rudranil Ghosh as the alien. The fifth episode (the theme of the episode was Ashare Goppo) shooting of this upcoming non-fiction series was going on at Bharat Laxmi Studios.
I Laugh U in its third season will be carrying forward the legacy set up in the first two seasons. Twelve known and popular comedians create pairs and perform on the given themes. The pairs this time consist of Dipanshu Acharya- Pradip Dhar, Atanu Barman- Pinky, Ambarish- Saurav, Saurav Chatterjee- Joyeeta Goswami, Sayani Ghosh-Daminee Benny Basu and Titas Bhowmick-Manasi.
The judges of this season are Saswata Chatterjee, Indrani Halder and Chiranjeet. Speaking at the occasion, Saswata Chatterjee said (in his usual humorous style) “With so much heat outside, it is very hard to shoot outside. When I was offered the chance to act as the judge, I thought why not? I can sit in an air-conditioned studio and will have to just say good or bad. Moreover this is a comedy show and I will be reducing the stress too”.
In a blue sari, actress Indrani Halder cast a pretty picture on the sets. “I am having a great time on the sets. Raj is a perfectionist and Kanchan and Rudra are not only great anchors, but equally good mentors and actors. My fellow judges are also keeping up the comic quotient high and we three have been cracking jokes often in between shoots. We are all stressed out in our day to day activities. Judging a show like this helps in decreasing stress.”
The actress also added that if there will be more seasons, she will also like to act as the judge in the show. “I had missed the earlier two seasons as I was out of the city then. But the fair judgment style with the director giving us the full freedom to state our opinion is what is making the stint as the judge of this show so appealing” said the actress.
Director Raj Chakraborty said “There will be new things happening in the show, which will add to its charm. I will not reveal much now about it. The highest scoring contestants in each episode will get prize money of one lakh rupees. Moreover the judges have been selected as they are some of the best actors in the industry. With their years of experience, their judgment is something which no one will question”.
I Laugh U (produced by Shree Venkatesh Films) will be aired every Sunday from 31st May from 9pm onwards on Star Jalsa.
