There has been talk of a reunion of television show Sarabhai v/s Sarabhai ever since a picture of the entire cast went viral on Tuesday at actor Satish Shah’s 65th birthday bash. Now, producer JD Majethia told Mumbai Mirror that the show will be back, but as a web series.
“We have received so much support from fans online some of whom have even volunteered to finance the show if it returns. During the discussion we agreed that none of us wanted a never-ending TV series but a shorter term online was a good idea. Once I return from my vacation, I will finalise the script and we will move on from there,” he was quoted as saying.
Satish, too, confirmed that the cast is on board for whatever is decided by Majethia and that actor Naseeruddin Shah might be part of the show. “Naseer (Naseeruddin Shah) doesn’t usually attend parties but he was also celebrating with us till 4am and said he’d love to come on the show as a guest. The only reason we are being so careful is because we don’t want to do anything rash. Sarabhai is not about individual characters, we are an iconic family,” he said.
Ratna Pathak confirmed her presence on the series too. “I would love to play Maya, but being an iconic show the quality has to be better than the earlier series,” she was quoted as saying.
