Life OK launches first sitcom ‘Comedy Classes’
MUMBAI: After launching Ekta Kapoor’s fiction show, Life OK has unveiled its first sitcom ‘Comedy Classes’ which will give viewers a class of fun, laughter and masti.
As reported earlier by TelevisionPost.com, the show will launch on 7 October, airing at 10 pm from Monday to Friday.
It will present popular stars of comedy in a sitcom format. The show will take viewers back to the classroom featuring four mad teachers and equally mad students where the only discipline required is laughing and giggling.
Life OK EVP and GM Ajit Thakur said, “This Diwali, Life OK will be the biggest destination for the viewers with six new offerings in just eight weeks. ‘Comedy Classes’ will bring the sitcom genre back to Indian television. With the biggest names in the Indian comedy scene, Krushna, Bharti, Sudesh and Shakeel, the show promises to be one of the most awaited offering for the viewers.”
Produced by Optimystix, the sitcom is about an acting school called ‘Ache Din Institute’ with a crazy bunch of teachers and students.
The class consists of mad teachers such as Krushna, the flirtatious and artful acting coach who is a struggling actor himself and does odd jobs for a living. Bharti plays the dance instructor, whose contemporaries include Saroj Khan and Farah Khan. She has invented her own moves and grooves like Bharti-Natyam and Gambra (a mix of garba and bhangra). The ‘Kanjus’ but romantic old music master Sudesh never misses a chance to mix two songs to create his ‘original’ compositions and the inimitable Urdu expert from Pakistan, Shakeel Siddiqui, who can speak no more than seven sentences in Urdu.
Optimystix producers Vipul D Shah and Sanjiv Sharma said, “’Comedy Classes’ is a very entertaining concept of mad teachers and students who will bring the house down with laughter through their weird classroom sessions. With a strong creative idea and powerhouse of talent, we are sure the audiences would love our new age classes.”
The classroom also includes a crazy bunch of students like Bruna Abdullah, the firangi student who thinks if Katrina didi and Jacqueline didi could establish themselves in the industry, so can she. There is also Madhura Naik, the Tollywood nurse who wants to make her name as a nurse in Bollywood, the owner of the institute is Selfie Mausi (Siddharth) who keeps a hawk’s eye on each and every activity in the school but freaks out every time she hears a siren. And while Mausi is away, her younger brother Naseer (also played by Siddharth), who has just returned after spending three years in a mental asylum, takes care of the institute.
The peon, Munna Dubey (Mubeen), is actually a wealthy guy who works as a peon just because he is a ‘khandani naukar’. And the hot receptionist of the institute keeps the fire burning with her latke-jhatke to fulfil her dream of becoming an item girl.
