While we’re happy to have some of our most favorite cult-classic shows make a comeback on TV, what are the odds of them actually turning out to be good, second-time over? 

For instance, remember the disaster that was Sarabhai vs. Sarabhai Take 2?

And now, as we wait for season 3 of Khichdi to hit our TV screens and there’s already news of Dekh Bhai Dekh and Movers & Shakers also coming back, another 90s classic show is set for a revival. 

Yes, Shrimaan Shrimati is coming back as Shrimaan Shrimati Phir se with a whole new cast!

First aired in 1994 on Doordarshan, Shrimaan Shrimati gave us genuine laughter thanks to its expertly-written dialogues and exceptional performances by the entire cast. 


Now, in an interview with Mumbai Mirror, director Rajan Waghdare has confirmed that they aim to retain the original plotline, of loving thy neighbor, but with a new cast. 

The original star cast was led by the Archana Puran Singh, Late Reema Lagoo, Late Jatin Kanakia and Rakesh Bedi.

The popular show, Bhabhi Ji Ghar Par Hain too has many similarities to this classic, so it will be all the more interesting to see how Shrimaan Shrimati Phir se sets itself apart.
