General News Star Plus to bring back ‘Khichdi’ after 14 years
Advertisement
#1
MUMBAI: Hindi GEC Star Plus is bringing back sitcom Khichdi after almost 14 years. In its new avatar, the show will be known as ‘Khichdi Returns’. Premiering on 14 April, the one-hour show will air in the weekend at 9 pm.

Produced by the erstwhile UTV Software Communications in association with Hats Off Production, ‘Khichdi’ debuted on Star Plus in 2002. The second season of the show aired on Star Plus’ sister channel Star One, which was rebranded as Life OK and finally as Star Bharat in 2017.

The new season revolves around Parekhs who have shifted into a new house and are in trouble. It will feature a mix of old and new cast which includes Anang Desai, Supriya Pathak, Vandana Pathak, Rajeev Mehta, JD Majethia, Renuka Shahane, Ratna Pathak Shah and Deepshika Nagpal. Produced by Hats Off Production, the show will also have celebrity integration in some of its episodes.

“The new season will be completely fresh but it will have all the essence of the previous season. There will be a mix of old and new character with some new twists. I can’t reveal much but if you ask me what the USP of this season is, I will say it is the set. It is completely new,” said Majethia.

Several channels and producers are avoiding releasing new shows in the month of April due to the Indian Premier League (IPL). However, the Majethia thinks otherwise. He believes that instead of losing viewers, Khichdi might gain new viewers due to IPL.

“Khichdi has a unique audience; they had supported Khichdi all the time. Even when the show was released as a film, there was a positive response. Also, Khichdi is not like your regular show where audiences need to watch from start till end, to understand. The viewers can watch the show in between and still get the puns. I feel IPL and comedy show can co-exist like when there is a break in match or match gets droning than viewers can tune-in Khichdi,” he added.
