With a number of popular shows on Star Plus being brought back for a second season run, Sony TV is also reviving its hit series ‘Saas Bina Sasural’ for series two.
Reports say that original stars Darshan Jariwala and Rajendra Chawla, will return to play Cheddilal Chaturvedi and Pashupatinath Chaturvedi respectively. It is also said that Aishwarya Sakhuja is likely to play the female lead.
Confirming the plans, Jariwala told Bombay Times, “Yes, I have been approached for the show. You will have to wait and watch to know if I will reprise the role or not. What piqued my interest about this role is that it’s different. My character is a tech-savvy guy. At his age, he has discovered and taken a penchant for the fun aspect of the world of the internet. His physical age has nothing to do with the way he thinks and outlook towards life.”
Reports indicate that the new season will be shot in front of a live audience eventually. Talking about this, Jariwala dded, “The format of the show has also appealed to me. We are trying to go back to the quintessential sitcom. Had we not been hit by the pandemic, I would have loved to perform before a live audience. In fact, it is something we will definitely consider, once the fear of coronavirus vanishes. This genre is different — here, you don’t shoot scenes and piece them together at the edit table. Here, it’s more about the raw energy. It’s a brilliant idea, because people are afraid to go back to real theatre. So, we are trying to bring theatre on TV.”
