Director-actor Deven Bhojani, who had helmed hit comedy show – Sarabhai vs Sarabhai, reveals that the TV series is set to return as a web series with a few new characters. But that’s not it! We will also see a time leap in the show to match up and associate with the current generation and time. As Deven revealed, “We are still in the process, it is too soon to talk about it but may be we will take a time leap and carry on. We will retain a few qualities and of course all the successful characters. We add a couple of more new characters. It is going to come out very soon.”
Deven had even discussed with a few producers to turn the sitcom into a feature film. However, it did not fall in place. The show, which aired in the mid-2000, featured Satish Shah, Ratna Pathak Shah, Sumeet Raghavan among others. Deven says though there were discussions to turn the show into a film, they had to shelve the idea since nothing came out of it. “We had a couple of discussions with our writer and producer regarding this, contemplating whether we can try to make a film out of it. But then it didn’t work out the way we wanted to so we thought to do something else with it,” Deven told PTI.
