The Sarabhais Are Back After 10 Long Years
Crowds went crazy when producer JD Majethia tweeted reunion pictures of the Sarabhai v/s Sarabhai cast with the tag ‘some good news for fans on its way’. JD Majethia is also known for his comical character ‘Himanshu’ in the famous television series, ‘Khichdi’.
Hasn’t it been a long time since we heard Maya and Monisha’s fight on little things like sabzi shopping and Rosesh read out his poems on his dear ‘Momma’? All those humorous things about sarabhai v/s sarabhai will be back in the form of a web-series.
This is what Mr. Majethia said in an interview, "We have received so much support from fans online some of whom have even volunteered to finance the show if it returns. During the discussion we agreed that none of us wanted a never-ending TV series but a shorter term online was a good idea. Once I return from my vacation, I will finalize the script and we will move on from there.”
Sarabhai v/s sarabhai was a unique comedy series that was enjoyed by all age groups and both men and women. It was kind of a saas-bahu serial but not like the cliché ones with the saas and bahus planning evil things against each other. There was more of humor and sarcasm, than just quarrels. This is what made the sitcom so popular and fun to watch.
The cast of sarabhai v/s sarabhai met at actor Satish Shah’s place. From the videos and pictures that JD Majethia posted, it seems like they had a blast. The entire cast sang the title song of sarabhai v/s sarabhai and discussed how the web-series would commence.
In Ratna Pathak’s words, “I would love to play The Maya, but being an iconic show the quality has to be better than the earlier series.” Her husband, the veteran actor Mr. Naseeruddin Shah, who usually doesn’t attend a lot of parties, was also present at the reunion.
So all the Sarabhai fans out there, get online, revise the previous season and gear up for a storming web-series coming out soon.
