After keeping us waiting for over a decade the popular comedy show Sarabhai vs Sarabhai is making a comeback, but as a web series. The sitcom’s entire original cast, including Satish Shah, Ratna Pathak Shah, Sumeet Raghavan, Rupali Ganguly and Rajesh Kumar will be seen reprising their famous roles. Shooting is about to begin by the month-end.
In a statement released, actor-producer-director Jamnadas Majethia stated “After the show wrapped up, all of us, including the actors, got busy with other commitments. However, at every public event and even at private functions in the last 10 years, I was always asked when Sarabhai vs Sarabhai was returning. It was public demand which finally compelled us to set aside everything else and concentrate on developing a quality script which lives up to the audience’s expectations. Shooting will continue all through April. We we are targeting a May release.”
The sitcom revolved around a quintessential upper-class Gujarati family, with the older son and his ‘gharelu’ wife living in the apartment across the hallway from the parents and their son, an aspiring poet.
Sarabhai vs Sarabhai will now take a seven-year leapb ut Majethia promises not to change anything people have loved in the past. The web series will also be introducing some new characters as well.
Well this is pretty exciting, isn’t it?
