London: The creator of comedy show `The Kumars at No 42`, Sanjeev Bhaskar, revealed the sitcom would be back on screens later this year and will have actor Hugh Jackman as the guest star.

"We`ve got these sketches that we do in the show now. Hugh Jackman has done one for us. Zoe Wanamaker`s done one for us as well," Bhaskar.

Bhaskar hinted that the star`s part would involve a trampoline. It was announced last year, that after a six-year hiatus, the comedy show had a new home on Sky1, reported Daily Mirror.

Bhaskar added that Jackman had done a couple of the sketches for them and shot them on one of his off days while filming `Les Miserables`.

Meera Syal and Bhaskar play Ummi and Sanjeev in the Kumars. "I asked him if he would do me a huge favour and shoot something," he said.

"In the end he rather kindly, between filming scenes, came away and did a couple of things for us. So he`s a great guy," he added.
