9X is all set to unleash a unique song-and-dance cookery show with a garnish of humour, interestingly called Kuch Kook Hota Hai featuring acclaimed television actress Sarita Joshi and the promising young actor Manish Paul; beginning September 7, every Monday to Thursday at 12 noon. The popular Hindi General Entertainment Channel from INX Media is all geared up to further strengthen its content by introducing many fresh new concepts. After having launched a mystical show — Sambhav Kya? — the Channel is gung ho about the unique cookery show directed by Raju Parsekar.

Raju, who had earlier directed daily soaps like Hum Sab Ek Hai says, “The concept of Kuch Kook Hota Hai ensures a scrumptious dose of entertainment. A wannabe cook dreams of becoming a world famous chef someday and in the pursuit of his dream he attempts cooking some dishes that he believes, are delectable delights. What the wannabe chef doesn’t know is that his daadi is a pro when it comes to cooking and many other things in life.” 

Says Sarita Joshi, “Kuch Kook Hota Hai will entail a humourous banter between Daadi Maa, played by myself and Manu, a wannabe chef, played by Manish Paul. Through a fun chit-chat we will actually cook dishes to satiate viewers’ delight.” For the first time in the history of a cookery show, the chef will give out the recipe through an entertaining song-and-dance snippet followed by an in-depth presentation later in the show.

Speaking about her role, Sarita Joshi said, “I am delighted to be a part of the Kuch Kook Hota Hai team. It will not just be a cookery show but a show laced with relationship and entertainment. What is different about this show is that though all cookery shows generally have an expert from the field, like say a Tarla Dalal or a Sanjeev Kapoor as the chef who tells you how to cook, this show has an actor like Manish teaching you how to cook, with the dadimaa butting in with her useful tips. The show’s distinctive presentation style gives it an edge over other cookery shows. Kuch Kook Hota Hai will also showcase some of my favourite recipes.” 

While Sarita Joshi is otherwise busy only with her show Baa Bahu Aur Baby, Manish Paul, who had earlier appeared in Bana Dost, Radha Ki Betiyaan, Morpin Sunday Tango and Choona Hai Aasman is busy with the Zee’s Ghar Ghar Mein. Manish confesses, “I am a bad cook but I am in the process of learning new recipes so that I can make my wife happy. She is a teacher.”

The half an hour format of Kuch Kook Hota Hai will showcase two vegetarian dishes per episode, cooked by both Daadi Maa and Manu, along with useful tips for digestion. Sarita Joshi, who admits that she makes it a point to watch all the cookery shows on TV, asserts that after doing intense roles like in Baa Bahu Aur Baby, she thought it would be a different routine for her to be part of a cookery show. She adds, “You will see an entirely different dadimaa in this show, who’s not at all an extension of the mother you see in Baa Bahu Aur Baby.”
