Zee launching 2 shows on 28 March

MUMBAI: Sunday's are special at Zee too. Although the channel is keeping it hush-hush on this one, it will be debuting two new shows on Sunday 28 March.

While sitcom Hum Sab Barati will debut in the 8 pm slot, replacing Chausath Panne's current series Aandhi, the next edition of Chausath Panne, Lavanya , will debut at 8:30 on the same day.

Produced by erstwhile writer- lyricist- director Sanjay Chhel, Hum Sab... is a comedy starring Dilip Joshi and Tiku Talsnia. Penned by Chhel himself, the sitcom is about a Barati family. 

Given his track record in comedy writing, television serials like Naya Nukkad, Filmi Chakkar, Philips Top Ten, Mast Mast Hai Zindagi, Dekh Tamaasha Dekh, Sahara's latest Malini Iyer and blockbuster films like Rangeela, Yes Boss, Daud, Kacche Dhaage, Pehla Nasha, One Two Ka Four, Kahin Pyaar Na Ho Jaye, Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani and Halo, the latest offering from the king of one-liners should be a rib tickling experience.

While Aandhi, Chausath Panne's current series was to wind up on 3 March, the channel gave the series an eight episode extension. Despite constant prodding, the channel chose to remain tight lipped on the developments. But according to an industry sources, the channel plans to announce the launch of the new series as well as its new movie acquisitions with a big promotional blitz.

As for Lavanya, the 64-episode series is said to be taking a cue from the classic Dev Anand-Nutan romantic movie. Starring Shilpa Saklani and Rohit Bakshi, the series is being produced by Moving Pictures in association with Rajeev Mehta promoted Dream Team. While both the screen play and the direction is by Habib, Mohit Jha is the episodic director.

Deviating from the usual melodrama's, the series is said to be a far cry from the extended family saga since it has stayed clear of the screen mothers-fathers- grandmothers routine. Additionally, the lead actors Saklani (Ganga of Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhie Bahu Thi) and Bakshi (Piyush of Kahiin To Hoga) will portray contemporary girl and guy next door characters.

In a bid to augment its comedy band, the channel will also be airing Moving Picture-Dream Team's next Adal Badal, a four day comedy starring Vinay Pathak and Sumeet Raghvan.

Besides, the channel has already introduced Mahesh Thakur to the cast of its critically acclaimed serial Astitva- Ek prem kahani. Thakur plays Dr Simran aka Niki Aneja's former love interest Abhi.
