Sahara bolsters primetime with two sitcoms

MUMBAI: An action packed month awaits Sahara Manoranjan patrons. The channel has already begun rolling out its quarterly plan and next in the pipeline is launch of three new shows.

While socio-drama Prratima will begin its run from 23 August, the channel has also lined up two sitcoms, Aao Bahen Chugil Karen and Main Office Tere Aangan.

The former deuts on 18 August and will air every Wednesday at 9 pm. Main Office Tere Aangan will go on air on 19 August and will run every Thursday at 9 pm.

While the channel's latest debutante, a daily youth-romance show Saathiya - Pyaar ka Nayaa Ehsaas, is adorning the cities skylines, the entertainment channel has gone interactive with the viewers with scare-dare show Raat Hone Ko Hai.

The channel has called in viewers to submit their ideas, which will be translated into four episodes. The winner of this contest will take home a washing machine from Videocon.

Aao Bahen Chugli Karen is a comedy based on six women dwelling in an elite society in south Mumbai. The women represent different regional cultures of India, namely Gujurati, Punjabi, Sindhi, Bengali, Malyali and Bihari. Out of the six female characters, just one of the characters gets a chance to be a part of the elite society after winning a super lotto lottery.

What naturally follows is delivery of whacky episodes showcasing their lives. A Clapstem production, the weekly is directed by Mukul Abhyankar and serial stars Lovelyn Mishra, Himani Shivpuri, Shruti Ulfat and Anita Kanwal amongst others.

Main Office Tere Aangan Ki is another sitcom that portrays the humorous aspects of professional and personal life colliding heads-on. The sitcom portrays Bhadresh Pandya (Rajiv Mehta), the owner of Chamak Advertising Agency, who had to shift office to his home to reduce overhead expenses. Neither his office staff, nor his family is happy with the move. A Hats Off production, the weekly is directed by Deven Bhojani and stars Utkarsh Mazumdar, Rajiv Mehta and Vaishali Thakkar.
