KOLKATA: Rickety walls, inquisitive neighbours, unending hassles yet limitless dreams; these define the dynamics of The Mishras who struck a chord upon their visit in 2019. With an IMDB rating of 9.1, Gullak Season 1 won accolades for its well-crafted characters, versatile performances and incredible direction. And now, SonyLIV is set to bring a host of ‘naye kisse’ in the new season of the show, starting 15 January 2020. This season is a glimpse into the usual ups and downs of this unusual family in bits and pieces that fill their Gullak of golden memories.

Narrated from the perspective of the humble piggy bank, the show brings to light anecdotes from daily life weaved into an unconventional style of storytelling. Produced by TVF, Gullak 2 will further explore the imperfect realities and relationships of the Mishra family, for whom togetherness matters the most. Within the small confines of their home, their lives are no less than a medley of emotions, arguments, and laughter, all rolled into one. Directed by Palash Vaswani, Gullak season 2 is set against the backdrop of North India and features Jameel Khan, Geetanjali Kulkarni, Sunita Rajwar Harsh Mayar and Vaibhav Raj Gupta in the lead.

“Gullak’s remarkable run amongst the audience was propelling enough for us to come up with a second season. The show resonated for its compelling narrative and relatable instances that are symbolic to a middle-class Indian household. The story also benefits from a bunch of incredible actors. With this all-new season, we hope the show rescripts success and starts the year on a warm and pleasing note for everyone,” Sony Pictures Networks India digital business, SET content head Ashish Golwalkar said.

"Gullak showcases the beauty, humour and simplicity of a North Indian middle class family which connected with everyone in Season 1 and would only bring more smiles to the viewers after a tough year like 2020. This is our first stint of 2021, made with utmost care amidst the lockdown and we are eagerly thrilled for the audience to watch the second season of this heart-warming show on SonyLIV,” TVF producer and founder Arunabh Kumar said.
