RK Laxman`s Common Man inspires TV show
New Delhi: Veteran cartoonist RK Laxman`s popular creation `The Common Man` has inspired a TV show -- `RK Laxman Ki Duniya`, which will deal with the aspirations and troubles of the common Indian men.
To be aired on SAB TV, the show will see comedian Atul Parchure will essay the common man, while Vandana Pathak will be seen as his wife.
Laxman, who turned 90 last month, portrayed the Common Man in Times of India cartoons that dealt with scheming politicians, gossiping housewives and corrupt bureaucrats, among a vast variety of subjects.
"RK Laxman`s cartoons always took a light-hearted view of serious issues, and so the show made a perfect fit for Sab TV," said a press statement from the channel.
The episodes and incidents of the show would involve happenings in the life of the common man, and represent his hopes, aspirations, troubles, and weaknesses in day-to-day life.
Co-produced by J.D.Majethia of Hats Off Productions and Dharmesh Mehta of NamanRaj Productions Pvt. Ltd, the series aims at depicting the happiness and sorrows of people, and their indifference towards their surroundings.
The show will go on air later this month.
