'Raamkhilavaan' team makes one more satire for SABe

MUMBAI: After Raamkhilavaan CM n family , a spoof on Bihari chief minister Laloo Prasad Yadav which ran into rough weather, SABe TV is poised to air another satire called Public Hai Sab Janti Hai .

A lampoon on the prevailing deplorable social, political and economic conditions in the country, PHSJH has been written and produced by Ashwini Dhir who also wrote Raamkhilavaan ....

"We have highlighted current issues like Manisha Koirala and the Ek Choti si Love story controversy, the Salman Khan accident, Bal Thackeray's fiery speeches and their impact, Veerappan and the unending games he plays with not one but two states, to name a few. The serial aims at presenting the third man's perspective and focus on what the general public has to say, " says scriptwriter Dheer.

"The serial is a tongue -in -cheek view of what the common man thinks of the media savvy politicians, Bollywood celebrities, the fourth estate and their quest for fame and money. We want to specify the fact that the common man can no longer be taken for granted, " elaborates Dheer.

The similarity with Raamklhilavaan does not end here. The serial has the same cast as the one that had to be pulled off air in early October following a court ruling against Sabe TV - Vineet Kumar, Sushmita Mukherjee and Sanjay Mishra, who played the lead protagonists in Raam... play the principle characters in PHSJH. The serial will be aired Mondays and Tuesdays at 8:30 pm starting from 18 November 2002.

"Public Hai Sab Janti Hai' is an answer to Raamkhilvaan which is still dawdling in the courts of Patna .We are sure that Raamkhilavaan will see the light of day. It may take time; but in a democracy no one can suppress the freedom of expression," says a channel official when asked if the channel was walking a tightrope by opting for another satire after the Raamkhilavaan debacle.
