Bindass’ comedy gang to star in UTV’s comedy film


MUMBAI: The grand finale of Idea Hass Ley India Comedy Gang War on 6 March will be on at 10 pm on Bindass, a UTV venture where the Kool Kolkatans mimic their way into the hearts of the judges and viewers to land themselves a once in a life opportunity to act in a UTV Motion Pictures comedy film.

Speaking on the occasion, Comedy Gang War judge Shekhar Suman said, "The Kool Kolkatans truly deserve their win, though for us, all three finalists are winners. All these kids are fresh talent entering the industry. The team has performed consistently and has made us proud. We wish them all luck for their future and their film assignment."

Commenting on their achievement, the comedy gang winners said, "At first we were shocked to hear Shekhar Sumanji announce on the set that we had not won the competition. However, later on, we learnt that we had won and that he had played a prank on us. We thank Bindass and the entire production team for giving us the opportunity to showcase our talent on national television and we are eagerly looking forward to presenting our best comic act on film… so Bollywood here we come!"

The Kool Kolkatans include Kapil Madnani, a 23 year old professional DJ and second runner up of Mr. University – Kolkata; DJ and professional film editor Vineet; dedicated theatre artist Nitin Bararia; and an independent lad with a dream to make it big in the film industry Abid.

Judged by Suman and actor, director, theatre personality Makrand Despande, the show received enormous response from viewers and fans across the country. The entire series saw two rounds; Shoot at Site and Jaldi Jugaad being contested in each episode.

While Shoot at Site was a pre-recorded gag, Jaldi Jugaad was an on-the-spot performance and had different themes for every episode. In addition, the finale episode saw the gangs presenting a fun-filled and hilarious dance performance on select Bollywood chart busters. Laced with mind-boggling performances by the gangs, the finale was one of the most entertaining episodes to be remembered by all.
