Mrs. and Mr. Sharma Allahabadwale got going from 17 May. The cast and crew assembled together to celebrate the first telecast at Mumbai’s BJN Banquets.
One was surprised to see the presence of actors Baba Sehgal and Abhishek Avasthi, who were entertaining SAB viewers at the same slot just a week ago with their show Jugni Chali Jalandhar. The struggling DJ’s show had to make way for Mrs. and Mr. Allahabadwale.
It’s never a nice feeling to see your show come to an end. ‘Jugni’, Muskaan Mehani, claimed to have cried for six hours. It must have been emotional day for other actors too. That’s why it was all the more surprising to see Sehgal and Avasthi.
Sehgal arrived little late, and appeared to be in real hurry to leave. He was spotted gulping down a solitary drink. Once the cake was cut, Sehgal bid good bye to SAB programming head Saeed Akhtar and few individuals (presumably channel officials). It was then that Sehgal said, “Chalo, ab iski (Mrs. and Mrs.Sharma Allahabadwale) TRP dekhte hai.. (We’ll watch out for the TRP of this show).” Akhtar broke into laughter. He refused to let Sehgal go, and asked him to take another drink. The actor couldn’t say no. However, he fled the scene soon.
Nice pun Baba, but take a chill pill. Jugni Chali Jalandhar had its run. A show lasting two years in these times is a pretty good achievement. Besides, it’s nothing less than a miracle for a Jugni Chali Jalandhar to have lasted that long. Now it’s time for the Allahabadi couple to make merry.
