ALTBalaji is bringing a lot of homegrown content for Indian and international audiences. The first time that they made a series based on another property was when they launched Ragini MMS Returns, a spin-off of their horror film franchise, Ragini MMS. Now, there’s news that ALTBalaji has commissioned a 10-episode web series that’s a new avatar of Zabaan Sambhal Ke, the runaway hit tv series from the nineties.
The series will have the same concept – of people from all walks of life coming together to learn a specific language. This time, the characters will be a Maharashrian from a Koli background, a Haryanvi guy, a North Eastern Indian and even a Bhojpuri starlet.
Earlier, the popular tv series Sarabhai Vs Sarabhai saw a digital spinoff, but that didn’t become as successful as the earlier series.
Rajiv Mehra, who had directed the previous tv series will be helming the series this time too. The cast for the series is not completely locked yet. However, Sumeet Raghavan will be playing the teacher and Bakthyar Irani will be playing one of the students.
