‘Lapataganj’ is the story of the people residing in an imaginary town of the same name. They lead a happy life against all odds. The show was famous among audiences for bringing to them several colourful flavours of rural India.

Preeti Amin, who played mute character Surili in the show, will not be a part of it, though the character will be there. Besides, Sucheta Khanna, who was seen in films like ‘Anjaana Anjaani’ and ‘Yamla Pagla Deewana’, will continue her role as Indumati Lal Gupta, and veteran actor Rohitashv Gaur will reprise the role of Mukundi Lal Gupta (Indumati`s husband) in season two of the show.
Asked if there is any change in the story and plot of the show, Verma said: "One must change with the changing times. Lot of changes have come in the country and so in `Lapataganj`."
