Lucknow’s Very Own Show Aur Bhai Kya Chal Raha Hai? Completes One Year!
Uttar Pradesh has been home to several talented actors, writers and technicians across Hindi cinema and the television industry. Over the years, the state and its capital, Lucknow, have been an inspiration for several blockbuster movies, OTT content, and now a television show.
On March 30th last year, &TV, in the first-of-its-kind endeavour, launched a Lucknow-based situational comedy Aur Bhai Kya Chal Raha Hai? With an entirely local production unit and a cast featuring Akansha Sharma as Sakina Mirza, Farhana Parveen as Shanti Mishra, Pawan Singh as Zafar Ali Mirza, and Amrish Bobby as Ram Chandra Mishra, this show sets a new benchmark in the Hindi GEC industry. As the show successfully completed a year, the entire team came together to celebrate this momentous moment at a party held in the city.
Quoting Vishnu Shankar, Business Head &TV, said, “Aur Bhai Kya Chal Raha Hai? is one of the most ambitious projects of &TV. It is the first Hindi television show to set base in Uttar Pradesh with most of its talent and crew being local. As a channel catering to the Hindi-speaking audience, Uttar Pradesh serves as a good source of culturally rich, relatable and enjoyable content with exceptionally great local talent.
The success of this show is a testament to their potential. The upcoming film city will further strengthen the production capabilities and attract more talent. We are now exploring more projects here in Uttar Pradesh and have created a platform to help us discover local talent, be it actors, technicians, or directors. This is truly the beginning of a new and exciting phase for the channel.”
