Producer of the popular comedy shows such as ‘Bhabiji Ghar Par Hai’ and ‘Happu Ki Ultan Paltan’ Binaiferr Kohli has been running the show successful for a quiet some time now. And in her recent interview she revealed how she manages to keep the audience hooked.
Talking about portraying relationship drama on television, Bhabiji Ghar Par Hai producer says: “It attracts viewers because we see our lives in it. We see our sisters, brothers, husbands, mother-in-law, our troubles and tribulations in the family. There is always a slight voyeuristic character in everyone and they like to see the other side of the story. The drama has to be real; if it’s a little over the top is fine but too much forced drama doesn’t really work. Sometimes it is a bit over the top because it’s a build-up to which there is a solution to the crescendo. If it’s not done correctly then it just topples over.”
She further added, “A lot of old people only watch television. They have no other outlet. The understanding of life they have leads to seeing many situations close to life. The 18-25 age group watches TV but the thing is they also have other things to watch like news, reality shows, web series. Not that they don’t watch TV they do but they are just more spread out. But comedy is evergreen and everyone loves to watch comedy.”
