&TV’s weekend dramedy ‘Shaadi Ke Siyape’ to premiere on 16 March
MUMBAI: &TV is all set to present a weekend dramedy titled ‘Shaadi Ke Siyape’ from 16th March 2019. The show will air every Saturday and Sunday at 8 pm. The show promises to bring alive all emotions and fervour of a wedding – dance, drama, music, comedy and a lot of siyapas to solve!
Produced by Full House Media, ‘Shaadi Ke Siyape’ brings together a strong ensemble cast with popular television names like Alka Badola Kaushal, Sheen Das, Bhavya Gandhi, Rahul Singh, Mishkat Varma and Ankita Bahuguna amongst others.
The show explores interesting stories of various wedding ceremonies with their respective cultural rituals, milieus, traditions and customs. It highlights all that’s good in Indian weddings, at the same time it attempts to create awareness about some of the negative customs related to this sacred union in an entertaining manner.
Commenting on the new offering, &TV business head Vishnu Shankar said, “For us Indians, weddings are an immensely integral and special part of our lives, celebrated with great fervour no lesser than a grand festival! What adds to its charm is that every wedding has its own unique story to tell, reflecting beautifully how diverse and rich each of our cultures, people and wedding rituals are. Bringing alive all the fun and shenanigans of Indian weddings, Shaadi Ke Siyape is a great combination of comedy and drama, a weekend watch which we believe will thoroughly entertain the viewers.”
Speaking about the unique concept of the show, Full House Media Producer Sonali Jaffar said, “Shaadis in India are a grand celebration unlike any other. In a society that treats marriage and its rituals like a big festival, we decided to give an alternate dimension to this thought by introducing a species who are completely unaware of this concept and the way it is religiously followed in India. With weddings that come along with their own set of siyapas, the additional element of these aliens will provide the show with the much-needed comic relief and entertainment. With comedy and drama occupying a major chunk in the entertainment space, we decided to tell this light-hearted story in our own unique way. Shaadi Ke Siyape will provide a different flavour to the audience’s current entertainment palette.”
