Adding a touch of happiness and laughter to the weekends, Sony SAB, is set to launch two new series – Band Baja Bandh Darwaza and My Name Ijj Lakhan. Exploring unconventional storylines and newer genres, both shows are limited format series that will add dollops of light-hearted entertainment to your weekend plans. Starting 26th January, welcome the best of Bollywood and television actors to the TV screens, Band Baja Bandh Darwaza at 7 PM and My Name Ijj Lakhan at 7:30 PM, every Saturday and Sunday only on Sony SAB.

Highlighting the concept of ‘everyone has a bit of black and white to their personality’, My Name Ijj Lakhan traces the journey of the central character ‘Lakhan’ who is a leading rogue of Mumbai. Bollywood’s critically acclaimed actor Shreyas Talpade debuts on Hindi television with his portrayal of Lakhan, who shaken by an unexpected jolt in his life, vows to become the man his father always hoped he would be. Motivated by his new-found mission to mend his ways, he tries to commit good deeds in his own peculiar ‘andaaz’ often resulting in startling comical outcomes. Real-life and reel-life couple Parmeet Sethi (Dashrath) and Archana Puran Singh (Pammi) play Lakhan’s parents. This vibrant, action-packed show also stars Sanjay Narvekar and Esha Kansara in pivotal roles.

Band Baja Bandh Darwaza, Sony SAB’s horror-comedy show is a tale of unfortunate ‘bhootiya’ twists that take place in the Khurana house whenever they get close to getting their son married. Bollywood’s favorite villain and comedian, Mukesh Tiwari dons the avatar of a ghost named Sanjeev Sharma. After living a life of solitude, Sanjeev returns as a ghost to haunt the lives of Sarita played by Neelu Kohli and Chandan played by Rajendra Sharma who are looking for a match for their young son, Rocky played by Amitosh Nagpal. What made Sanjeev return as a ghost and why is he adamant on Rocky living a life by himself – you will have to wait and watch, enjoy a new twist unfold every weekend!
