R K Laxman's caricatures to come alive on small screen
Now, here’s news that will bring a smile to your lips. All those millions out there who have been missing living legend R K Laxman’s comic strips on common man and his problems, it’s time to sit back and enjoy. SAB TV’s latest offering R K Laxman Ki Duniya is based on the works of the famous cartoonist and illustrator. The show, produced by Hats off Productions and Naman Raj Productions Pvt. Ltd, will go on air from 28 November 2011 at 9 pm.
The show will feature caricatures from R.K. Laxman’s work at the start of every episode which will later transform into living characters. When we asked the need for this effect, Dharmessh Mehta of Naman Raj Productions said, “We wanted R K Laxman’s cartoon effect to be a part of the series to increase the entertainment quotient of the show.”
Earlier, the cartoonist was actively involved in directing Wagle Ki Duniya, which was based on the characters created by him. But now that he is bedridden, his daughter-in-law will be a part of the show. “Dad is unwell, so I am looking after whatever is needed for R K Laxman Ki Duniya. Dharmeshji came to dad and asked for his permission. He agreed only on the condition that I will be involved in the show,” said Usha Laxman, R.K. Laxman’s daughter-in-law.
We wish that history repeats itself and this show goes on to become as big a hit as Wagle Ki Duniya!!!(By Team 18 Nov 2011 - 17:31 )
