Mumbai, August 26, 2017: The matriarch of the family who is often the
mastermind of kitchen politics is the most crucial ingredient of any family
show on TV. For decades we have watched the saas plotting away to glory to have
her own way. But what about a Saas whose obsession for the perfect bride gets
her into trouble?  For the first time
ever, a Saas gets tested by God on this side-splitting comedy and is the one in
a tight spot.
In India, even the most sensible of mothers become
unreasonable when it comes to finding a bride for their sons. Most mothers
believe that their sons are perfect and the 21st century mother-in-law demands
a bride who is not just beautiful but also a great cook and religious. She
needs her daughter-in-law to be highly educated, driven and romantic enough to
keep her son engaged.
To address this mind-set head on in a light and
humorous manner, Star Bharat (Life OK – rebranded) in association with Optimystix brings ‘Kya Haal Mr. Paanchal’, a rib-tickling sitcom starring Kanchan Gupta, as the over-demanding
Saas and Manindar Singh as the
compliant son.
The show follows the consequences that a mother faces
when her desperate prayer for the perfect bride with all 5 qualities finally
gets answered but with a strange twist. The sitcom revolves around a saas’ plight,
when, instead of getting 1 bride with 5 qualities she gets 5 bahus with 1
quality each. The bizarre situation makes for a series of uproarious events,
reminding us that we should always be careful of what we wish for! The show is
a sitcom which conveys a powerful message that when you want more, it doesn’t
always turn out to be good. The show highlights the fact that greed for
perfection is bad and one should not have unrealistic expectations from their
The lead actor and protagonist Kanchan Gupta said, “The show is a satirical yet amusing take on
how mothers are obsessed with finding the perfect girl for their son because
they feel their sons are the best and they deserve nothing but the best. The
narrative is very tongue-in-cheek and relatable – I am sure the audiences will
love the show”

Vipul D Shah, Chairman& MD of
Optimystix Entertainment-
added his views on the new show, “For the first time ever on
Indian television, a saas will have to give agnipariksha! We realized it was
time to turn the table and put the saas on the hot seat. The show hilariously
captures the chaos that arises in mundane daily situations when a saas has to
deal with 5 bahus each with their unique quirks.
Watch Kunti Devi become the victim of her own greed in
this hilarious sitcom every Monday to Friday at 8.00 p.m. only on Star Bharat.
