Doordarshan comedy ‘Zabaan Sambhalke’ to get a web series reboot

After Sarabhai vs Sarabhai and Khichdi, popular Doordarshan show Zabaan Sambhalke (1993) is set to make a comeback as a web series, DNA reported. The 10-episode reboot will be launched on Ekta Kapoor’s digital platform, AltBalaji.

Directed by Rajiv Mehra, the show starring Pankaj Kapur, Tom Alter, Viju Khote and Shubha Khote was an Indian adaptation of hit British sitcom Mind Your Language (1977). The comedy chronicled the travails of Mohan Bharti (Pankaj Kapur), an engineer who is forced to teach Hindi to a group of misfits at a language school.

Mehra will return to direct the web series, which will star Sumeet Raghavan as the frenzied teacher and Shoma Anand as the institute’s overbearing head. The rest of the cast is undecided.
