Kuldeep Debey who was part of Shekhar Suman's team opted out of the show after shooting two episodes; Shailesh Lodha aka Taarak Mehta takes his place in Star Plus' reality show..



Kuldeep Dubey who came into the limelight with The Great Indian Laughter Challenge was supposed to be part of the team - Shekhar Ke Movers in Star Plus and Reliance Big Productions' big ticket reality show, Comedy Ka Maha Muqabla that is to launch on March 19th.

However, as per the latest news Kuldeep has quit the show even before it is launched!!

Our source states, "The unit had already shot the first two episodes when Kuldeep all of a sudden decided to opt out of the show. This in fact put the production house in a tough situation, as they had to not only get a suitable replacement for Kuldeep, but also had to re-shoot the performances of the team for the first two episodes".

We hear that the saviour at this juncture happened to be the very talented Shailesh Lodha, who essays the role of Taarak Mehta in SAB TV's Taarak Mehta Ka Oooltah Chashmah.

"With Kuldeep citing erratic shooting schedule as the reason for him to move out, Shailesh Lodha stepped up to the occasion and saved the face of one and all. The unit, happy with the replacement they have got for Kuldeep went thro' the re-shoot of the entire performances", adds our source.

When contacted, Shailesh Lodha told us, "I really do not know what happened before I got in. All I can say is that I was approached to be part of the show, and I accepted it. I am part of Shekhar Suman's team now".
