Actor Deven Bhojani, who directed hit sit com ‘Sarabhai vs Sarabhai’, says he hopes he can soon bring the show back on TV for his fans.
The show, starring Satish Shah, Ratna Pathak, Sumeet Raghavan, Rupali Ganguly and Rajesh Kumar, revolved around the life of an upper class Gujarati family, the Sarabhais.
Ever since ‘Sarabhai vs Sarabhai’ went off air in 2006, there has been a huge public demand for a second season. Bhojani, who also starred in the TV series, said he is ambitious about doing another season of the show.
“I am very grateful to the audience for their love for the show and I am humbled by the fact the people still watch it online or whenever it is aired on TV. It has been almost 8 years that the show ended,” Bhojani told PTI.
“We had planned a second season earlier but somehow things did not work out between the makers and the channel. I don’t know when it will happen but I am hopeful and ambitious. When we come up with the next season, there will be a time leap for sure,” he added.
Bhojani, who has mostly done comedy shows, for the first time has directed an action-based show ‘Pukaar- Call For the Hero’ along side filmmaker Vipul Amrutlal Shah.
The ‘Baa Bahoo Aur Baby’ actor said he is very excited to try his hands in the action genre and hopes that the audience will accept his new venture.
“I am fortunate that people remember and appreciate me for my comic shows. But I am really excited about my venture into the action genre. Vipul has more faith in me than I have in myself. He is my childhood friend. He knows about my talent, my range and that’s why he gave me this work. I am happy that we are directing this show together,” he said.
