Years after Indian cinema graduated from silent films to talkies, the small screen is ready to take things to where it all began.
A new show on SAB TV, tentatively titled
Sab Chup Raho
, will treat viewers to some silent entertainment.
The weekly comedy show is set for launch towards the end of January and may occupy the 9 pm slot on either Friday or Saturday, said the channel.
“We have always believed in offering innovative and fresh content to our audience. Now we bring India’s first silent comedy. We hope to break new ground with the launch of this show and provide our viewers with yet another reason to sit back with the family and enjoy light hearted entertainment on SAB TV,” said Anooj Kapoor, the channel’s business head.
The cast of the show includes Sunil Grover, Sheetal Malik, Bhavna Balsavar and KK Goswami, among a host of other actors, who are being specially trained for the show.
They have been attending a workshop to learn how to emote well without dialogues. All the characters would be seen communicating with the help of sign language.
The show deals with a family’s day-to-day life.
