SAB TV launches Hum Aapke Hain In-Laws and Tota Weds Maina
Hum Aapke Hain In-Laws and Tota Weds Maina

SAB TV held a press conference today wherein they went ahead to launch two shows, namely Hum Aapke Hain In-Laws and Tota Weds Maina. Let's delve into each project one by one.

Sometimes it's a blessing and sometimes a lesson which you don't want to learn. But life and your in-laws will teach you life's lessons the most when you want to avoid them the most. And this show Hum Aap Ke Hai In-Laws is all about the blessings and lessons, suggestions and tensions we get from our in-laws because whether you want it or not, you like it or not, they will rectify all your flaws because as they say "HUM AAPKE HAIN IN-LAWS!"

Hum Aapke Hain In-Laws is a cheerful and light-hearted comedy on SAB TV that traces the journey of Gulshan Grover & Damini along with that of his in laws who happen to be a blessing as well as a nightmare by the sheer power of being his neighbors. The show explores the twists, turns and adventures in day to day situations for Gulshan and his wife Damini as they are surrounded by their in-laws who not only happen to be unconditionally loving but also unintentionally interfering. While the loving and doting in-laws strive to make life simple for the young couple, in the bargain they only land up complicating things. However, at the end of the day it's all about loving your in-laws.

For Karan Grover who plays Gulshan Grover and Pooja Pihal who plays Damini Grover, this is their first tryst with comedy. Karan, who is well-known for playing intense characters, will now experiment with the genre of comedy that will surely win over your heart and make you laugh out loud. This is Pooja Pihal's first tryst with comedy too; she has played extremely popular characters in serials on small screen.

Sharing more about the show, Karan tells us, "My role is of a head-over-heels husband who goes to unreasonable lengths to meet his wife's demands. My character is hilarious and extremely lovable because my acts and antics are always very innocently and unintentionally funny. I have never tried my hand at humour but I've given it my best and I hope my audiences love my new avatar."

On the launch of the new show, Anooj Kapoor, EVP and Business Head, SAB TV shares, "SAB TV has always propagated that 'Asli maaza SAB ke saath aata hai' and we emphasize on the importance of togetherness; our launch of the year 'Hum Aapke Hain In-Laws is the perfect reinforcement of our beliefs. This show is an endearing tale of the Grover family; it brings back the joys of togetherness and beautifully depicts the endearing bond between a couple and their in-laws."

Moving on to Tota Weds Maina. Well…marriages are made in heaven. Or are they? Not for Tota and Maina, who did find their respective Miss and Mr. Right but instead ended up marrying each other only to realise that marriages are, after all, not all heavenly. Had the two taken a compatibility test, they'd probably have been the least likely couple to get together. But little can be done after the milk is spilt. Tragic? Not even remotely, as SAB brings you one of the funniest rom-coms ever, with their latest show Tota Weds Maina hitting your television screens this January.

It's a light hearted comedy where the protagonist Tota gets married to Maina through a series of comic events in a mass community wedding. What unfolds is a hilarious journey of this couple with completely contrast characters. Tota is a simple, honest, sincere & a loving person whilst Maina is an adventurous, bold and talkative person who keeps falling in trouble as she believes that life is boring without any twists. In this process Tota always finds himself at the receiving end trying to manage the family and the comic troubled situation the couple gets in due to Maina's misadventures.

Anooj Kapoor further shared, "Tota Weds Maina is our first launch of the year. We have created the show as a young rom-com that the whole family will relate to. Every show we bring to the audience is progressive, entertaining and steeped in the values of Indian culture. We bring shows from every state of the nation and allow the audience to connect with the love and the sense of togetherness of various families from different corners. This one in particular will concentrate on the diverse cultural elements from Uttar Pradesh. "

The show is being produced by Miloni Pictures. Tota Weds Maina boasts of stellar cast like Kavita Kaushik, Gaurav Gera, Atul Srivastav, Samta Sagar,Vishwanath Chaterjee,Priyani Vani, Sandesh Nayak, Kajal Nishad, Surbhi Tiwari, Ishtiyaq Khan, Shyamlal, Eklavya Bhetaria, Simran Nadekar etc. The show is a hilarious journey of this newly married couple who while discovering their love for each other struggle with day to day situations of a joint family often triggered by Maina's adventures or Tota's innocent mistakes.

PS-Pictures of the launch to follow soon in the slideshow section.

It's tough to get rid of Chandramukhi Chautala's character: Kavita

Published by: Shubhanshu Sharma 
Published on: Tue, 08 Jan 2013 at 05:36 IST


Mumbai: Kavita Kaushik, who played the role of inspector Chandramukhi Chautala in comedy TV show "FIR" for so long that it not only started affecting her real personality, she also had to shake up hard to get rid of it to don the colours of Maina for her new show "Tota Weds Maina".


She has played Chandramukhi Chautala for seven years and says that she lived the character of Chandramukhi Chautala so long "it leaked into my real life, I almost became that character". 

"When I was approached for this character (Maina), I told him (producer) I will have to erase Chandramukhi from Kavita and then take something else," the 31-year-old said here on Monday at the launch of her new show.

Now, Kavita is happy to do something different on the screen.

Watch out for Maina and her scenes with her mother-in-law, she says and adds, "You will see such amazing emotions. I was dying to do various different emotions and sensitive scenes which I was not doing for so many years."

The best part is that she is being pampered on the sets of "Tota Weds Maina", something which was amiss on "FIR" sets for obvious reasons.

"My producer has given me an army of make-up men, hair dressers and costumes... an army that I did not have for seven years. I used to go on the ('FIR') sets and used to get ready in 10 minutes - just put on the uniform and a bit of make-up, that's it. But now all the time there is someone decking me up with bangles, chunari, hair styling and all that. But I am enjoying this," Kavita said.

"Tota Weds Maina" stars Gaurav Gera opposite Kavita and it will go on air on January 14 on SAB TV in place of the comedy "FIR" at 10:30 PM. Now, "FIR" will be shown at the weekends.

Kavita Kaushik down with dengue; still shoots

Tejashree Bhopatkar, TNN Jan 8, 2013, 03.31PM IST
(Kavita Kaushik )

Kavita Kaushik better known as Rowdy and Hero Chandramukhi Chautala of SAB TV's long running sitcom FIR is now trying hard to come out of her Dabanng Zone and play a chirpy, bubbly Maina in SAB TV's new offering Tota Weds Maina.

Interestingly, the actress is not leaving any stone unturned to shock the audiences with her new avatar. Hence, the actress in spite of suffering from Dengue is giving her best to grow the character of Maina. " I am going to shock the audiences for sure because till now for last 7 years, they have been seeing me as Dabanng Chandramukhi Chautala and now it will be difficult for them to accept me as sweet Maina. But I am going to shock them all with my new character. SAB TV has showed lot of trust in me and I am not going to led them down," promises the actress.

Kavita (Kaushik) is taller than me, hence will be seen more in Tota Weds Maina, jokes Gaurav Gera


Gaurav Gera

After a six year hiatus, talented comic actor Gaurav Gera is all set to return to daily soaps with SAB TV's Tota Weds Maina.

Talking about the character he plays, Gaurav says, "In the show, I play a simple guy next door from Uttar Pradesh studying chartered accountancy. Having a heart of gold, he is loved by his entire family."

Gaurav who attained fame with Jassi Jaisi Koi Nahin, further goes on to add, "This is the first time on television that I will be getting married. Maina's (Kavita Kaushik) character is in contrast to me; she is bindaas and liberal natured though she is as good as me."

The experienced actor also does not feel that his co-star will overlap him, she being a well-known actor. "Since she is taller than me, she will be seen frequently. Jokes apart, we know each other from before and have always respected one other. Hence, there is no such fear that one expects."

Asked about the reason as to why he had stayed away from dailies for so long (Jassi was his last), he avers," Back then, the set up of soaps was quite way ward and I also wanted to take things lightly. Now, that the TV work culture is also becoming more streamlined, I want to work hard. I also accept that, doing a daily show is important in terms of public perception as you are seen regularly. Having said that, I stayed away from it for long and despite that made good money from gags and shows."

Gaurav who has also done Babban Bhai v/s Bimla Tai for 9x observes, "Comedy is finally finding it's due space on desi TV, thanks to SAB TV which offers family comedy entertainment. Viewers now have an added option apart from watching the normal kitchen politics which other channels, any way, air. The fact is that today, the highest paid TV actors are the guys who take part in Comedy Circus."

The actor had also been a part of the first season of Great Indian Comedy Show(Star One) "although it wrapped up way back in 2006, but our gang of Vinay Pathak, Ranvir Shorey and Purbi Joshi is still together."

Unlike other TV actors, Gaurav does not want to build a body, "I don't work out, but do pray to God to give me six pack abs. On a more serious note I see to it that I am fit."
