&TV to premiere ‘Happu Ki Ultan Paltan’ on 4 March
MUMBAI: &TV will launch its new show ‘Happu ki Ultan Paltan’ to strengthen its weekday programming line-up with a family sitcom. The channel will premiere ‘Happu ki Ultan Paltan’ on 4th March every Monday to Friday at 10 pm.
Talking about the show, &TV head Vishnu Shankar said, “With Happu Ki Ultan Pultan, we are happy to strengthen our weekday programming line-up with a family sitcom designed around a character that enjoys a strong nation-wide following. Happu Singh in Bhabhiji Ghar Par Hai gained such immense popularity that viewers were curious to know more about his other side, his life at home. We believed this provided an opportunity to present a distinct narrative. You have loved him as the Daroga, now you will see his andaaz as a family man – a husband, a son and a father. The show’s zany plots and characters will give a glimpse of a typical common man’s household routine and his daily troubles. For the viewers, the show promises to be an out an out entertainer and an escape into a laughter riot with Happu and his Paltan.”
With his ‘niyocchavar kar do’ gimmicks set aside, Happu Ki Ultan Paltan will delve into the other life of Happu at home, beyond the purview of his cop duties. His comedy misadventures and ‘gharelu’ funny tragedies will now come into play as the show narrates the escapades of Daroga Happu Singh, his ‘dabang dulhan’ Rajesh, an obstinate mother Katori Amma and his nine notorious kids. He will be caught in the ultimate tug-of-war between his mother, wife and troublesome paltan – his children. Produced by Edit II Productions, the show brings together an ensemble cast of talented artists like Yogesh Tripathi, veteran actress Himani Shivpuri, popular television actor Sharad Vyas, theatre actress Kamna Pathak amongst others.
Speaking on the show’s concept, Sanjay Kohli from Edit II Production said, “Happu Singh has been a favourite amongst viewers ever since the inception of the character in the hugely popular Bhabiji Ghar Par Hai. This huge fan following for Happu encouraged us to come up with a show revolving around his life at home and it’s sure to entertain the audience. Happu Ki Ultan Paltan will capture the hilarious situations that will take place in Happu’s home with his bindaas wife, nagging mother and his nine pesky kids, with helpless Happu in the centre of all their madness. We are positive that viewers will love this show and laugh along.”
