Holi is here (8 March 2012) and it seems that every channel is busy making its content more colourful. And SAB TV is certainly not behind in the race to woo viewers this festive season.
To add spice to masala, the creatives have planned a crossover episode between Lapataganj and FIR. The plot can be termed to be a “mini Sholay” one.
“On Holi, a notorious dacoit, Hola Singh, will enter, along with his girlfriend, the village of Lapataganj to rob the villagers,” informed a source.
Hola Singh’s girl friend will dance on the number “Hai sharmau kis kis ko batau” from the movie Des Pardes. She will be the one who will hint Chandramukhi Chautala (Kavita Kaushik) about Hola Singh and then the FIR team will capture the daku.
“Yes, the entire cast of FIR will catch the dacoit at the end the Holi sequence. It will be aired from 10 to 11pm on 9 March,” confirmed Sanjay Kohli, producer of FIR (Edit 2 Productions).
Sounds great fun! Now, the set of Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah is still under renovation. However, that doesn’t mean that viewers will not get to see Gokhuldham wasis enjoy their heart out this Holi. So, they will celebrate the festival at Jethalal’s (Dilip Joshi) friend’s farm house.
Furthermore, in Chidiya Ghar, Kasturi will come to play Holi with her family. On the other hand, Babuji doesn’t play Holi, but his close friend will come to visit him and this year Babuji may (or may not) enjoy the festival of colours.
“Creative team is working on the particular sequence. We will shoot on Wednesday (7 March 2012),” said Jitu Shivhare aka Gadha Prasad.
All Holi sequences will air on 9 March 2012.
