Mind the Malhotra’s is co-starring Mini Mathur and Cyrus Sahukar is based on a comedy that follows a couple trying to reignite the much needed spark into their marriage.
Cyrus Sahukar is once again back to his flex acting muscles with this Amazon Prime Video sitcom, Mind the Malhotras. The famous comedian, television host and occasional actor is playing the role of Rishabh Malhotra, the father of three who has signed up for couples’ therapy with his wife, Shefali (Mini Mathur), after noticing several instances of divorce in their social circle.
Talking about his character, Cyrus mentioned on a media platform, “Rishabh is the average good guy, the regular guy who worries about his kids, home loan, where his life going. You usually either see the bad boy, the party boy, or an overly nice guy on television or in movies. Rishabh is going through the regular dilemmas of the regular person and is quite eccentric and neurotic but unaware of it.”
The series is directed by Sahil Sangha and Ajay Bhuyan and is set to release on Amazon Prime Video, tomorrow on June 7. The cast includes Sushmita Mukherjee, Anandita Pagnis, Nikki Sharma, Jason Dsouza and Rahul Verma.
Mind the Malhotras has been produced by Born Free Entertainment and presented by Applause Entertainment which is an adaptation of the Israeli television comedy show, La Famiglia. As per Cyrus’s remarks the show is a perfect fit for Indian viewers who are similarly eccentric and crazy.
He further elaborated on his character, “Rishabh had these kids when he was 19,” Sahukar elaborated. “So he’s grown up with them. I found that relationship quite funny because he doesn’t really get all three of them. Rishabh is figuring it out as he goes along and making mega parenting faux pas.”
Cyrus has initially worked with his current co-star, Mini Mathur, who is also his old friend. Both have been together for various shows on the music and entertainment channel MTV in the late ’90s and early 2000s. Adding to which, Cyrus said, “I have a very special friendship with Mini because we both joined MTV at the same time. There is certain taking for granted that you do in a long-term relationship. We wanted to bring that ease and familiarity to Rishabh and Shefali’s dynamic and that energy was really easy to find with Mini.”
