Yes, it's confirmed that India's much-loved TV sitcom - show, Sarabhai Vs Sarabhai is making a comeback.

And this time we need not get glued to the specific time on which it will be aired on some channel, as this time it is coming as a web series on a digital platform.

So what is Sarabhai vs Sarabhai?

Okay, Sarabhai vs Sarabhai is an Indian anthology sitcom featuring a quintessential upper-class family in Mumbai. The show, broadcast in 2005 on Star One, received a positive response from the critics and public alike and enjoyed one of the best TRPs for an Indian comedy show. In the final episode, the principal characters are seen stating that there would be another season of the series. However, in 2012, Deven Bhojani denied that the series would return. 

Just few days back the entire cast of the show met for a reunion and then it started the speculations that the show would comeback.

Sarabhai Vs Sarabhai was an out of the ordinary sitcom starring Satish Shah, Ratna Pathak Shah, Sumeet Raghavan, Rupali Ganguly and Rajesh Kumar in the lead roles. The serial was all about a South Mumbai family full of strange and weird members and was an absolute delight to watch. The show was not only close to the hearts and full of joyment, but it also gave us some life lessons.

Here are some life lessons that Sarabhai vs. Sarabhai taught us:

1. Family always stands by you:

Family is and always will be the people who would stand with you when the whole world has turned its back on you. Our family has the most important influence on our lives. We depend on them no matter what the situation arises and we are sure that our family will always be there to pick us up when we are going down and will make all efforts to make us going again.

2. Pursue your Passion:

Rosesh, the character is known for his poetry. But unfortunately, the standard of those are pretty low. But the fact is that those poems do make us laugh and we adore him for that. The life lesson is that, it is not at all important how good or bad you are or will be at whatever you do. It is all about giving a try. And trying it again and again. Rosesh is a perfect representation of trying things again and again and with passion.

3. It’s okay to be unconventional:

Every character here had a character about self. The fix anything man Dushyant, the Narad Muni Indravadan, the misinterpreting Madhubhai, all of them are far away from being normal. In spite of that, they all have a cosy place in our hearts. The lesson learnt is, it is not your problem if you don’t fall in the well defined norms of the society. That’s not your issue at all. What is needed from you is just keeping the head up and high and continuing what you are.

4. Be adjustable:

Sahil is soft, noble, wise and much attached to both his mother and wife. He dislikes hurting anyone. Also he is the typical Indian male sandwiched between his wife and mother. But, when the whole of the family is absolutely showing no signs of maturity, he is the one who brings balance. When the family is like normal, he would be the first one to crack a joke and enjoy.

5. Every day is an adventure:          

Everyday adventures are essential because they enrich our lives and help us route our attention away from life’s hassles. They help us see things with a fresh perspective, and, perhaps best of all, they open the door for us to re-energize our lives with more fun and creativity. No matter how simple your life looks, you must learn to embrace the fact that your life is one big adventure. Go beyond the comfort zone, laugh out life and love all.

So, Sarabhai vs. Sarabhai was not just a legendary Indian TV show, completely out of the league of saas-bahu khichdis, but had some immense knowledge and wisdom infused in its crunchy comedy.
