"The characters in Sarabhai vs Sarabhai are all extremely human and real and that's where the humour lies. One can relate to these characters, not a single one is far-fetched so to get the real essence and the vulnerability, it was paramount to revisit Saahil," IANS quoted Mr Raghavan's statement. Last week, the show's producer Jamnadas Majethia revealed on Twitter that the shoot for Sarabhai series will begin at the end of this month. The show is coming back after 11 years as a web series.

Meanwhile, commenting on his look for the show, Sumeet Raghavan told IANS: "Well there is no change as far as my look is concerned." "We had a great time for the script reading. I mean what do you expect when the Sarabhais meet. Complete madness. Can't wait to start shooting," IANS quoted the actor as saying.
The show will be taking a seven-year leap and some new characters will be introduced, reported Mumbai Mirror. "It was public demand which finally compelled us to set aside everything else and concentrate on developing a quality script which lives up to the audience's expectations. Shooting will continue all through April. We are targeting a May release," Mr Majethia told Mumbai Mirror.
