90’s show Shrimaan Shrimati to return on television as ‘Shrimaan Shrimati Phir Se’!
Shrimaan Shrimati Phir Se will premiere On Television from March 13, 2018, and it will be helmed by its original director, Rajan Waghdhare.
After Khichdi (which will soon air on TV) and Sarabhai Vs Sarabhai, one of the greatest shows of 90’s, Shrimaan Shrimati will return on television as Shrimaan Shrimati Phir Se. The original show aired from 1994 to 1999 and it is coming back after 19 long years. This new series will be directed by the renowned director Rajan Waghdhare, who also directed the original sitcom on Doordarshan. While the plot of the series remains the same, the iconic characters from the show will be brought to life with an all-new ensemble cast featuring Barkha Bisht as Prema Shalini a.k.a Doll, Suresh Menon as Dilruba Jarnail Singh Khurana a.k.a Dil, Samir Shah as Keshav Kularni a.k.a Keku and Sucheta Khanna as Kokila a.k.a Koki.
Based on the premise of ‘Love thy neighbor’, the story revolves around the lives of two neighbours, where the men have a soft corner for each other’s wives and try their best to impress them. This leads to many awkward and hilarious situations as their hopeless and relentless attempts add to the humour quotient of the sitcom.
Mr. Neeraj Vyas, Sr. EVP & Head, Channel SAB and MAX cluster of channels in a statement said, "In line with Sony SAB’s belief of Haste Raho, India, we bring to you a refreshed version of a classic TV series that brings back the same high-level comedy that made it a cult favourite, served with some new age flavours. In its all-new avatar, Shrimaan Shrimati Phir Se is packed with nostalgia, as an ensemble of versatile actors bring alive unforgettable characters in a contemporary setting. Waiting in the wings, this retelling of a classic is all set to entertain viewers all over again.”
