Producers JD Majethia and Aatish Kapadia on the new season of comedy series Khichdi, its cult status and enduring appeal. The new season began on April 14 and is being aired on Saturday and Sunday on Star Plus.
TV show Khichdi, starring Anang Desai, Rajeev Mehta, Supriya Pathak, Vandana Pathak and JD Majethia, is set to return with its new season on Star Plus. In an exclusive chat, 'Babuji' shares what to look forward to in the upcoming season of this cult sitcom.
The audience of Khichdi adores Supriya Pathak aka Hansa, and her antics, be it her, ‘Hello…How are? Khana kha ke jaana…’ or asking her husband Praful (Rajeev Mehta) to describe English words, became a worldwide sensation.
The new Khichdi series will feature the same talented cast – Anang Desai, Supriya Pathak, Vandana Pathak, Rajeev Mehta and JD Majethia. While the strength and essence of the characters have been retained, they will be madder this time.
The attempt to prepare Brand India khichdi using 800 kg of grains has entered the Guinness World Records. Chef Sanjeev Kapoor, who led the team, said the khichdi preparation had started from Friday night.
The first ever World Food India, held at the India Gate Lawns has set a world record of making the largest portion of khichdi weighing 918kgs. Chef Sanjeev Kapoor and Baba Ramdev were among the eminent personalities who took part in the process.
In the process, as a proud Minister for Food Processing Harsimrat Kaur Badal, Minister of State for Food Processing Sadhvi Niranjan, and yoga guru Baba Ramdev beamed, the 918-kg concoction also felled a Guinness World record.
