The first-of-its-kind ‘political’ party that
will live up to its promise …!
Guys … There’s a new ‘political’ party being formed on the eve of elections … and it has only ONE promise that it intends to live up to – That of making you laugh! Fikar not … this one’s not about to stand you up like the rest! After all, this special party is nothing but Zee TV’s first-of-its-kind ‘variety’ comedy show. Be it your classic Indian style hasya kavis who’ll make you laugh at the very life issues that usually make you cry or new-age stand-up comedians whose hilarious spoofs will bring you the asli chehras of some of the most talked-about netas, actors and sports figures, ‘Dabur Glucose D Gangs of Hasseepur’, that launches on Saturday, 26th April and airs every Saturday- Sunday at 8 PM on Zee TV, has all that it takes to tickle your funny bone! 

Peppered with anecdotes plucked out of your own life, the show will see funnymen Raju Shrivastav and Suresh Menon leaving viewers in splits  with their witty punches and comic timing. Comedienne Bharti Singh will add her own flavor of masti to all the madness on the show. The gorgeous divas Mandira Bedi and Tanishaa Mukherjee will step in as the Hasseepur ki Haseenayein, adding to the glamour quotient of the gang. Known for her penchant for comedy, the vivacious Ragini Khanna will be seen as the host of the show. With rib-tickling impersonations of famous personalities and spoofs on topical issues that affect human life, here’s a show that seems set to make you fall off your chairs!
Speaking of the new show, Zee TV Programming Head Namit Sharma said, “It's not because we also wanted a comedy show that we are doing this. The idea behind it is to reflect what's happening in the country and humour is the best way. The whole show is meant to have fun. The line of the show is 'Jo cheezein aapko rulati thi, wohi aaj hasaayengi'. Everything that is a pain point for the country is fodder for humour on the show. It's a variety show with different styles of comedy. It's election-related with issues like inflation, lack of trust in the politicians, etc forming the basis of humour.”
Comedy veteran Pankaj Saraswat who is co-producing the show with Zee’s in-house production arm Essel Vision Pvt Ltd, said, “Gangs of Hasseepur is a melting pot of diverse styles of humor presented by different types of comedians. In addition to stand-up heavyweights like Suresh and Raju, the show will feature some of the finest stand-up talent from across the country. It’s an open platform for celebrating different styles of comedy that Indian television hasn’t experienced yet.”
Returning to the tube after creating quite a stir on reality television, Tanishaa Mukherjee is all kicked about the new show, “While humor is subjective, there are certain things that we collectively feel strongly about – as a nation. One of them is the upcoming elections and the state of affairs in the country. When you have humor that is linked to such a theme that everyone relates to and actively discusses – it immediately becomes universal in its appeal. So, I strongly feel the show has the potential to instantly connect with the audiences!”

The gorgeous Mandira Bedi who turns to Comedy, yet another male-dominated genre after sports, says, “I feel a natural connect with comedy. I’ve lived my life, with an eye for the funny. My upbringing has instilled a sense of humor in me and I tend to look at the lighter, quirkier side of everything. We’ve shot just two episodes but I already feel at home on this show!”

Get prepared to handle the madness as the Gangs of Hasseepur are about to attack … ‘Dabur Glucose D Gangs of Hasseepur’ starts on 26th April, airs every Sat-Sun at 8 PM, only on Zee TV!
