What would you expect when a plane crashes and the pilot who was flying it reaches the safe shores of an uninhabited island? Instead of going the usual Robinson Crusoe or Castaway way, SAB TV delves into the realm of fantasy in Jeannie Aur Juju. Captain Vicky Arora (essayed by Ali Asgar) on surviving a plane crash, finds to his pleasant surprise that he is after all not all alone in the lovely island where he has arrived. He liberates an exquisite genie who was trapped in a bottle for 2000 years. From then onwards the genie Jeannie (enacted by Giaa Manek) becomes a part and parcel of Captain Vicky's life granting him his wishes. Vicky is however engaged to his boss's daughter Priya but is falling in love with the lovely genie in the bottle.

The press conference of this event was held at the J.W.Marriott, Mumbai. It began with a play act of the Jeannie appearing from a box which was couriered to Captain Vicky. A magic trick was shown on the stage in which the Jeannie makes bright red flowers bloom from a bouquet stripped of flowers.

Anooj Kapoor, EVP and Business Head of SAB TV was at the outset asked the most obvious question as to why he was having more than one fantasy show on SAB TV. He clarified, "This is purely coincidental. Also this isn't just a fantasy show- it is a romantic comedy in the fantasy genre in which the male protagonist is torn between two women. Whereas Baal Veer at 8pm is more for kids, Jeannie Aur Juju is more for the family viewers."

Producer Rajiv Mehra from Eagle Productions who has made classic comedy shows like Office Office and Shararat is producing the show. Besides Ali Asgar and Giaa Manek; this show also stars Kurush Deboo, Harsh Khurana, Jiten Mukhi, Navina Bole, Shoma Anand, Muni Jha, Ashish Roy and Jhuma Mitra.

Jeannie Aur Juju premieres on SAB TV on November 5th at 9.30pm. It will be telecast from Monday to Friday.  For more interesting updates on the show please watch this space.
