A desi 'Saturday Night Live' on Star!

Is originality in short supply? Or would we rather piggy back on the assured success of a tested western show format??

Now, they are bringing Saturday Night Live, in a desi version if you please, to Indian TV. Remember we told you Zee is toying with the idea of bringing Sex and the City to our screens? Now, Star is firming up its plans to Indianise the 29 ear old popular NBC series to the soon-to-be-launched Star One.

While SNL in the US has reportedly helped folks like Eddie Murphy and Adam Sandler get their start in the world of entertainment, SNL here has already roped in the likes of Cyrus Broacha, Cyrus Sahukar, Suresh Menon, Brijesh Hirjee, Delnaz Paul and many others. The anchoring will be shared depending on the availability of the chosen lot. Interviews, gagsā€¦ and lots more on Star One, if you please!

A little bird tells us that In House Productions' CEO Shailesh Dave first floated the idea of localising SNL, but the show will now be created by Contiloe Films, with Dave having decided to quit In House and take his creative energies elsewhere.

Dave has some more aces up his sleeve too, tells us avian source. He is now thinking up another show Dil Kya Chahta Hai (again on Star One) starring Samir Soni, Gaurav Chopra, Nikhil Acharya and newcomer Samir Sharma. A male-centric show for a change, on channels choc-a-bloc with simpering saas and soutens. And for those who loved Farhan Akhtar's Dil Chahta Hai, here's news that should gladden the heart - Dave's show is inspired heavily from the peppy DCH. You think a TV series on the theme can be a patch on Akhtar's effervescent work of art? We ain't saying anything till we watch this one!

Kanchi are you really friends with Samir because you always have more information on Samir than any one else. It is really excellent if you know him personally. Maybe someday all of us India forum Purab fans can meet him.
