One of the most popular comedy shows, ‘Sarabhai vs Sarabhai’ is coming back and this time it’s not a rumour but a confirmed news.
Director-actor Deven Bhojani, who had helmed hit comedy TV show ‘Sarabhai vs Sarabhai’, says he once had a discussion with the makers to turn the sitcom into a feature film. The show, which aired in the mid-2000, featured Satish Shah, Ratna Pathak Shah, Sumeet Raghavan among others.
Show’s producer Jamnadas Majethia took to Twitter to confirm that the show is indeed returning.

The show will be back as a web series, that will be available on Hotstar.
“We had a couple of discussions with our writer and producer regarding this, contemplating whether we can try to make a film out of it. But then it didn’t work out the way we wanted to so we thought to do something else with it,” Deven said.
‘Sarabhai vs Sarabhai’ is now set to return as a web series and Deven says some new characters will be added.
“We are still in the process, it is too soon to talk about it but may be we will take a time leap and carry on. We will retain a few qualities and of course all the successful characters. We add a couple of more new characters. It is going to come out very soon,” he said.
The show revolved around the life of an upper class Sarabhai family, consisting of Indravadan (Shah) and his wife Maya (Pathak), who live in an apartment with their younger son Rosesh (Rajesh Kumar). It also featured Sahil (Raghavan) as their older son and his wife Monisha, played by Rupali Ganguly. The show became extremely popular for its wit and running gags about its characters, from Rosesh’s poetry to Maya’s sophistication.
