Back on the small screen

Kader Khan is back after two years, though not with a movie — he will be seen on the small screen in a new comedy Hi! Padosi... Kaun Hai Doshi?, which goes on air on Monday on Sahara One.

Directed by Sunil Prasad of Kumkum fame, the new show is about two men living on the same floor. While one is a Gujarati guy called Hansmukh Lal Mehta, the other is Harvansh Lal Mehta from Punjab. As the name plates of both the neighbours carry H L Mehta, it often creates confusion for everyone.

“It’s a comedy and I have tried to show how confusion creates trouble for a simple man,” Prasad said in a statement. The star cast also includes Sanjeeda Sheikh, Sejal Shah, Giriraj Kabra, Muni Jha, Nilu Kohli, Govind Khatri, Gulfam Khan and Govind Bole. Kader Khan was earlier seen on the small screen in Hasna Mat.
