Star Plus to Revive Khichdi, Renuka Shahane to Play a Lady Don

Khichdi TV Show

Veteran actress Renuka Shahane is all set to play a Maharashtrian lady don on the Star Plus show Khichdi which is being revived, where she will be seen kidnapping the lead character Hansa.

When asked about her favourite lady don Shahnane said, “My favourite lady don will always remain Supriya Pathak from Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela. To share screen space with her in Khichdi has been an absolute honour, also because Hansa has been my most favourite character from the show and my role is closely linked to hers. It couldn’t get better than this.”

Khichdi is among the few iconic comedy shows on television which was enjoyed throughout the years by families who lapped up the lovable characters – be it Praful and Hansa with their famous camaraderie, Babuji and Jayshree’s constant banter or any of the numerous antics that the show aired.

The new show is all set to bring back the cast of Anang Desai, Supriya Pathak, Vandana Pathak, Rajeev Mehta and JD Majethia and others. The makers of the show are currently finalising the script for the show.

Khichdi The Movie

Khichdi was launched in 2002 when it became popular with audiences and was relaunched in 2005 with its new season as Instant Khichdi. Later on, the makers used the premise and characters to make the first Indian cinema to be based on a television series with Khichdi: The Movie which performed well at the box office. Let’s hope the repackaged version of the series is as entertaining to audiences as it was the first time, when it launches sometime next year.
