Saas Bahu meets Spoof! Poof! – a sneak preview by Suhana Bhatia
What happens when you cross all over-the-top “saas bahu” shows with a bunch of crazy actors, and reveal the “behind-the-scenes” melodrama in the lives of their actors?
Well!!! You get “I DON’T WATCH TV”, which their trailer confesses, “has been approved for inappropriate audiences” !
Co produced by actors Nakuul Mehta (Pyaar ka Dard Hai, Star Tv) and Alekh Sangal (Yam Hai Hum, SAB Tv), this 5-episode web series launching on April 16th, has been directed by Ajay Singh and is a spoof-cum-expose on the biggest stars of television, when they’re NOT on television.
Boasting special appearances by some popular daily soap stars, which include Ritwik Dhanjani, Dhrashti Dhami, Karan Wahi, Karan Patel and even Rajeev Masand, IDWT’s in-your-face whacky, trailer promises a generous dose of madness and innuendo. Don’t miss the “baa” sniffing some .. ahem stuff….. and Rajeev Masand swearing by Karan Johar!
Plus, if you watch daily soaps, beans are certainly getting spilled here and you might find out a little more than you had bargained for!
While television shows go ballistic over ‘rona-dhona’ and ‘ichhadhaari naagins’, the digital platform is getting more adventurous and gearing for an audience which is now open to quirky, innovative content.
Some of the biggest production houses, including Yash Raj Films, Balaji Telefilms and Eros, are now creating edgy web-series and shows for a worldwide audience, instead of waiting for television channels to nod their heads for “zara hatke” ideas.
So here’s a big yes to I DON’T WATCH TV and 4 stars in anticipation of a good belly laugh!
