In a statement news agency IANS, the writer and creator of the show, Aatish Kapadia said that the characters of Sarabhai vs Sarabhai are inspired by the 'real people'. "Each character in the family is replete with their own distinct quirks, and trust me when I say that each of these characters is based on real people in my extended family. I play around with them in my head and then write the episodes, and if I feel like I'm having a blast, then I feel sure that the viewers will too," he said in a statement to IANS.
