Comedy Ka Maha Muqabla, a stand up comedy show had the original format with five-member team led by each celebrity captain, which included Arshad Warsi, Raveena Tandon, Shreyas Talpade, Sohail Khan and Shekhar Suman. However, sources from the show claim that the format of the show had to be changed at the last moment as Sohail opted out of it at the last moment.
The sources of Mid Day from the channel Star Plus inform that Sohail Khan exited from the show after learning the names of the other celebrity captains on the show. His last moment exist didn't help as the channel was unable to find another replacement for him on the show, therefore the format had to be changed and one team had to be dropped.
Meanwhile, Sohail tried to explanations by saying, "It's not true. The channel approached me a couple of months back. I had liked the format but told them right then that I wouldn't be able to take it on as the dates were clashing with the Celebrity Cricket League (a tournament he is part of) and my new home production."
