The popular comedy show, Khichdi, which was followed by a second season, Instant Khichdi, in 2005, is set for a comeback on TV with their original cast with some new faces as well.
Khichdi 3 has already begun their production with their cast including Anang Desai, Rajeev Mehta, Supriya Pathak and Vandana Pathak reprising their roles. Produced by Jamnadas Majethia and Aatish Kapadia, the latest season will also feature a couple of new actors.
“We started the Khichdi journey on Star Plus and we are excited to be back working with the channel,” Majethia told Mumbai Mirror.
The television show, which chronicles the adventures of an eccentric Gujarati family, made its debut in 2002 and continued for two years. It returned in 2005 as Instant Khichdi, airing on Star One, and eventually became the first Indian show to be adapted into a film. Pathak was nominated for the Filmfare Award for Best Supporting Actress for her portrayal of Hansa in Khichdi: The Movie (2010).
Khichdi 3 will also feature Majethia’s daughter Mishri, and writer-actor Aatish Kapadia’s son Agastya; it marks the acting debut for both. Agastya Kapadia and Mishri Majethia will be playing characters named Jackie and Chakki. Balvinder Singh Suri and Sameeksha have already been roped in for Khichdi 3.
“We have decided that this time Khichdi will be swadisht with many walk-in characters. That will be the highlight of this season. Even for small roles, we are talking to talented actors,” says producer JD Majethia.
