Tanishaa Mukerji and Ragini Khanna quit Gangs of Hasseepur – Find out why?

The show’s dropping TRP has resulted in many walk outs

Tanishaa Mukerji’s second outing on television as one of the judge’s of Gangs of Hasseepur began with much grandeur and pomp, has hit a road block. With the first 16 episodes of this comic series failed to win over it’s viewers, resulting in the ouster of judge Tanishaa and host Ragini Khanna.

Apparently the show’s failure to garner TRPs was one of the biggest reasons for this sudden exit. Rumour mills also suggest that Tanishaa and Ragini were not spontaneous and hardly showed any interest for the betterment of GOH. Buzz suggests that the production house felt that the show could as well do without the presence of these beauties. So, does that mean that Mandira Bedi will go solo on Hasseepur now?

The channel is keeping their moves hush-hush and refuted all rumours suggesting that Tanishaa and Ragini were shown the door. Zee TV suggests that decision to move on is mutual and are currently focusing on the show’s makeover.

It seems that Kajol’s little sister had date issues with the new schedule and hence cut short her inning from 16 episodes to 10. Ms Khanna on the otherhand was to host only eight episodes, but has shot for 10 of them so far. Delay in renewal of TV contracts is usual in the television industry, however we wonder was the shows dropping TRP the real reason for their exit.

Watch Video Gangs of Haseepur- The New Comedy Show

Zee TV has come up with a new comedy show, Gangs of Haseepur, to entertain the viewers in this political atmosphere.

Actress and popular TV host Mandira Bedi and former “Bigg Boss” contestant Tanishaa Mukerji are all geared up to judge the new comedy show “Gangs of Haseepur

The film has nothing to do with it Anurag Kashyap‘s gangster film, Gangs Of Wasseypur.

Gangs Of Haseepur is a comedy show, which will reflect what’s happening in our country. Election related issues like inflation, lack of trust in the politicians and such other topics will form the basis of humour on the show.

Currently quite a few comedy shows such as “Comedy Nights With Kapil” are ruling the small screen, but Mandira feels “Gangs of Haseepur” stands apart and can’t be compared to them.

“It has pure stand-up comedy, varied characters are there, sketches and skits,” she added. ”It not only has stand-up comedy, but a lot of other stuff and variety. There is something for everybody,” she said.

Produced by Essel Vision Productions, “Gangs of Haseepur“, will be hosted by actress Ragini Khanna and several popular stand-up comedians like Raju Srivastav, Bharti Singh, Suresh Menon and Krushna Abhishek will be seen performing in it.

Gangs of Haseepur“, is set to go on air on April 26, 2014 on Zee TV
