The much-loved Sarabhais are all set to tickle our funny bones again and this time it’s going to be through a 10-part web series on Hotstar in keeping with the trend these days. The show would see a 7-year old leap post the hiatus.
The show which ended 11 years ago is all set to make a comeback in May and the principal characters of the show along with a few additions started shooting in March end.
The story revolves around the lovable and rich Sarabhai family residing in urbane South Bombay locales. The family members feature Indravadhan Sarabhai (Satish Shah), Maya Sarabhai (Ratna Pathak Shah), their youngest son Roseish Sarabhai (Rajesh Kumar), eldest son Sahil Sarabhai (Sumeet Raghavan) and his middle class wife Monisha Sarabhai (Rupali Ganguly).
“From Maya’s haughty retorts to Rosesh’s epic poetry, every component that made Sarabhai vs Sarabhai timeless, will very much remain the hallmark of this series. That said, there’s much more hilarity and some brand new characters to look forward to. The wise cracky, intelligent soul of the show, will return exactly as our fans remember it, with more laughs and new stories,” JD Majethia, founder of Hats Off Productions was quoted saying.
Sarabhai vs Sarabhai did exactly that some years ago, bringing Indian audiences a kind of sharp, witty and contemporary comedy that they had never seen before. The buzz and love around the show was so strong that we had to bring it back,” said Ajit Mohan, CEO of Hotstar.
The cult classic that first aired in 2004 and went off air in 2006, was way ahead of its time and has since enjoyed a huge fan following!
