Star Plus' 'Sumit Sambhal Lega' to go on air from 31 Aug at 10 pm

MUMBAI: Everybody Loves Raymond, the globally acclaimed sitcom that has been adapted in several countries across the world, has now set foot in India as Sumit Sambhal Lega.


Come 31 August, and Star Plus will launch the show from Monday to Saturday in the 10 pm slot.


The show offers a light-hearted take on how after marriage, a man often finds himself caught between the two most important ladies of his life.


Sumit Sambhal Lega follows the story of a Punjabi family in Delhi and stars Namit Das as the protagonist Sumit Walia. He is a sports journalist who unwillingly finds himself in a constant tug-of-war between his wife, Maya and his mother Dolly. To make matters worse, his gluttonous overbearing father and unmarried and insecure older brother add to his already chaotic life.


The show also marks the comeback of actor Jasbir Walia on the small screen, who will be seen playing the role of the head of the family in the show.


Sumit Sambhal Lega is produced by DJ?s A Creative Unit.


Producer Deeya Singh said, ?I wanted to bring theatre on TV ? to give the viewers an experience as if the actors are performing live in their homes.  It?s been a great learning with many firsts for me through this show - the process which as producers that we were involved in like the writer?s room, rehearsals before actual shoots, four camera setup and working closely with the international creative team like Steve Skoravan. The show insight about a married man living with his family struggling to find a balance is a worldwide phenomenon and I believe it is this madness that brings us joint as a family.?


For the direction team, Star Plus brought together three different people. The series was set up by filmmaker Shashant Shah, Deven Bhojani and actor-director Parmeet Sethi.


Heading the writer?s room is script consultant Rajesh Devraj, who is working with Arshad Sayyed, Sumit Roy and Chirag Mahaba for the sitcom?s script. As a first for Indian television, Star Plus has also roped in the writer and co-producer of the original series Skrovan, who oversaw the entire creative process.
