SAB TV is all set to launch the first-of-its-kind silent comedy fiction show later this month.
The show, tentatively titled ‘Sab Chup Raho’, will be a weekly to be aired on Fridays. The timing of the show is being worked out. Anooj Kapoor, business head, SAB TV informs AFaqs, that the new half-hour show will be aired between 21:00 and 23:00. During this time band, the channel airs the rerun of ‘Taarak Mehta Ka Oolta Chashma’.
Talking about the unique format of the show, Kapoor says, “Ever since we re-launched in September 2008, we made it a point to make innovative and differentiated comedy shows. Be it a horror comedy (Bhootwala Serial), a gangster comedy show (Gunwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge), a courtroom comedy (Yeh Chanda Kanoon Hai), and now a silent comedy show; we are happy to be doing innovation in comedy. We have grown 200 per cent in the last one year.”
‘Sab Chup Raho’ is a fiction, based on the day-to-day happenings in a joint family. Every Friday, the show will look at a new story within the family, where the members, rather than talking, will communicate through gestures.
