From the oil slicked hair that perfectly twirls on his forehead, to his goofy paan-stained grin that highlights his atypical moustache – the funny potbellied, corrupt Daroga Happu Singh has made viewers laugh like none other over the years. But is the sher of Modern Colony a bheegi billi at home? Answering this very question and introducing a new chapter in comedy,&TV presents Happu ki Ultan Paltan, set to premiere on 4th March 2019 every Monday to Friday at 10:00 pm.
With his ‘niyocchavar kar do’ gimmicks set aside, Happu Ki Ultan Paltan will delve into the other life of Happu at home, beyond the purview of his cop duties. His comedy misadventures and ‘gharelu’ funny tragedies will now come into play as the show narrates the escapades of Daroga Happu Singh, his ‘dabang dulhan’ Rajesh, an obstinate mother Katori Amma and his nine notorious kids. He will be caught in the ultimate tug-of-war between his mother, wife and troublesome paltan – his children. Produced by Edit II Productions, the show brings together an ensemble cast of talented artists like Yogesh Tripathi, veteran actress Himani Shivpuri, popular television actor Sharad Vyas, theatre actress Kamna Pathak amongst others.
Talking about the central character in the show, Yogesh Tripathi who plays Happu Singh said,“Happu Ki Ultan Paltan is a dream come true for me! When I started playing Happu Singh, I never imagined that I would make a special place in the hearts of the audience. Today to have an entire show pegged on Happu Singh’s character seems surreal to me and I can’t be grateful enough for such a great opportunity. I humbly thank the viewers for giving me so much love and wish that they shower more of it on Happu Ki Ultan Paltan. We hope to make them laugh through all the antics of Happu and his family.
Highlighting her character in the show, Himani Shivpuri said, “I play Happu’s mother, Katori Amma in Happu Ki Ultan Paltan. When this role was brought to me, I knew it was a winner and didn’t think twice before taking it up. It is such a privilege to bring happiness to viewers and make them laugh! And to have such a wonderful team working alongside with you, adds to the fun. Katori Amma is a matriarch and a dominant personality in the family. While she makes a loving grandmother to all her nine grandchildren, she is caught in a constant banter with her daughter-in-law.
Sharing her experience of stepping into the genre of comedy, Kamna Pathak who plays Happu’s wife said,“Comedy has always been a genre that I have wished to explore, and I don’t think there could have been a better show than Happu Ki Ultan Paltan to begin this journey with. Unusual and unique like her name, my character Rajesh is Happu Singh’s dabbang wife who although might appear soft in her approach, is a daring woman who can take on a fight. I believe Rajesh’s character has a personality which will not just entertain audiences but also give every housewife a chance to connect with. I have a great team and hope the audiences shower their love on our show.”
