Colors promises a laugh riot with its newest offering Chhote Miyan Dhaakad. The show will have children try their hands at stand-up comedy and will tickle people’s funny bones. The show will be judged by actors Neha Dhupia and Sohail Khan. Bharti Singh will be hosting the show.
Produced by Endemol Shine India, Chhote Miyan Dhaakad will air every Saturday and Sunday at 6 pm and 10 pm from March 25.
The show will have 12 budding stand-up comedians, handpicked from across the country, fight if off for top glory. Divided into three groups of four each, these children will not only showcase group performances but also solo acts that will prove their mettle on the laughter stage.
Commenting on the launch of the show, Manisha Sharma, Programming Head, Colors, said, “At Colors, we have attempted different formats within the comedy genre. This time we decided to let the children take the centre stage and show their alacrity in the art of comedy. Neha and Sohail are great with kids and we found them to be a perfect fit for the show with Bharti guiding them with her enthusiasm as an anchor.”
Talking about the show, Deepak Dhar, Managing Director and CEO, Endemol Shine India, said, “Talent comes in many forms, shapes and sizes. The most appealing one, though, is that which resides in children. Chhote MIyan Dhaakad puts together 12 rip-roaringly hilarious children who only strive to entertain the viewers and the judges with their performances. They are the true USP of the show; their unexploited and unadulterated talent forming the foothold for a true-blue family entertainer. With Chhote Miyan Dhaakad, we hope to create an unparalleled viewing experience which will grab the audience’s attention and bring a smile to their faces every weekend.”
Speaking on his role as judge, actor Sohail Khan said, “Chhote Miyan Dhaakad goes where no other comedy show has gone in the past; it recognises the talent of the younger generation and gives them the platform to entertain the entire country with their antics. The rib-tickling moments that these young crusaders have been creating during the course of the shoot makes us believe that they’re the next big thing on television. I am extremely proud to be able to partake in their journey, and commend Colors for putting the spotlight on their comic prowess. These little wonders will spin their magic and take the nation by storm.”
“Chhote Miyan Dhaakad is a format that tugs at the innocence and simplicity in humour, delivered with utmost confidence by young talent. Colors has a strong legacy in delivering interesting comic formats and content, and I am happy to be associated with this show. I especially love the fact that I got an opportunity to witness the budding talent that hold the potential to emerge as tomorrow’s comic stalwarts,” added co-judge Neha Dhupia.
