Days afer freshening up its Saturday night schedule with the launch of short comedy movies, SAB TV is now tweaking its weeknight programming.
Out goes ‘Mrs Tendulkar’ and in its place will launch ‘R. K. Laxman Ki Duniya’, a show based on the works of noted cartoonist R.K. Laxman. The series, produced by J D Majethia (Hats Off Productions) and Dharmesh Mehta (NamanRaj Productions Pvt. Ltd) has prominent artists like Atul Parchure essaying the common man, Vandana Pathak as his wife, Deepak Ghirwale as the retired Sanskrit teacher and many more.
‘R. K. Laxman Ki Duniya’ focuses on the character of Common Man who is a silent spectator of marching time and confronts India۪s latest heartbreak with a kind of wry resignation. The meek and silent Common man character, a witness to everything, scheming politicians, gossiping housewives and rapacious bureaucrats, has been hugely successful because it represents the new India.
‘Sajan Re Jhoot Mat Bolo’ is also being rescheduled and shifted from 21:00 to the 23:00 slot from Monday 28th November. On the same day, SAB TV will launch ‘Chidiya Ghar’ According to reports, the new show will have a large starcast where each character will have a peculiar quality of an animal. The head of the family will have the nuances of a lion whereas someone who loves to talk will be portrayed as a parrot. One of them will be a snake who is always creating differences between people while one will sway gracefully as a peacock. The casting is in process and the production is trying to approach well known actors to essay these unique characters.
