Red Chillies Idiot Box’s Ghar Ki Baat Hai to be one hour weekly


MUMBAI: With the IPL season starting, Shah Rukh Khan produced television show Ghar Ki Baat Hai on NDTV Imagine, which started as a tri-weekly show (Friday to Sunday) is going to be one hour weekly from 11 April.

Director Anant Mahadevan says, “I always thought comedy should be weekly. Ghar Ki Baat Hai has found its own mark. The feedback for the show is excellent. People even watch the repeat telecast and we have the best of talent in terms of actors who have amazing comic timing. Once a week airing of two episodes back to back every Saturday is a good idea. In case of sitcom like Ghar Ki Baat Hai, the entire story is told within a stipulated time. It is a comedy of manners and words rather than the comedy of slip on the banana.”

The show is produced under the banner of Red Chillies Idiot Box.
