Zee TV to launch ‘Tumhi Ho Bandhu Sakha Tumhi’ in early primetime slot

MUMBAI: Showcasing a family that is friends first, Zee TV’s next fiction show ‘Tumhi Ho Bandhu Sakha Tumhi’ will explore the dynamics of a modern-day joint family.

The show will premiere on 11 May. It will air at 7 pm from Monday to Friday.

Zee TV business head Pradeep Hejmadi said, “In an era of single protagonist shows where viewers are asked to follow the journey or a hero/heroine, here’s a show where the family is the hero. There was a time when living together under one roof was a way of life in India. Today, it raises questions of adjustments, space, privacy and compromise. Just like you have one friend who can cheer you up no matter what, another that you turn to for counsel on relationship issues and yet another who offers the best career advice, ‘Tum Hi Ho Bandhu Sakha Tum Hi’ highlights that you can find unique equations with each member of your own family and be friends with them, if only you kept an open mind.”

Produced by Shashi-Sumit Productions, the show revolves around the Pethawalas, a family from Agra that has multiple generations staying together under one roof, with each member playing a very unique role.

Producer Shashi Mittal said, “The Pethawala family represents an evolving pattern amongst contemporary joint families who believe they’re friends first, before family. Parents and children are fast learning the value of communicating with each other and understanding different viewpoints. In a world hard-pressed for time, when family becomes your best friend, you can’t wish for more.”

The family members are always up for a good laugh and above all, they’re there for each other through thick and thin and people often wonder if it is the bonds that they share amongst themselves that are sweeter than the Pethas they sell as a part of their family business.

In a day and age where privacy and space have taken precedence over bonding and sharing with your family members, Zee TV’s next primetime fiction show calls out to its viewers to pause, look at the Pethawalas and soak in the warmth of living together as one close knit unit.
