Be it the dimwit meanderings of Praful or the silly bumblings of his wife Hansa or even the prudish ways of Babuji - Khichdi, as a show, worked with the audience. Unlike TV comedies that are completely over-the-top and also somewhat mindless, Khichdi had the right dose of silliness that wasn't too loud or crass. In the league of Sarabhai Vs Sarabhai, Khichdi regaled the audience with two seasons - one aired on Star Plus and the other on its then newly launched counterpart, Star One. It was also made into a full-fledged feature film - a first for any tube show. However, the third season will now air on Star Plus. Shooting for the same has already begun in a suburban studio and honestly, we can't contain our excitement!
An account of the goings-on of the Parekh family, Khichdi was a situational comedy about a joint family that wants to break free but is being kept together by the patriarch, rather forcefully. The plot and myriad characters - all sketched with much attention to detail, provided enough comedy during its runtime. Such was the popularity of the show that the makers had to come up with a second season, after a successful run of two years of the first season. The second season, instant Khichdi, saw the Parekh family enjoy riches after having discovered an oil mine right beneath their property. The shenanigans of the neo-rich family obviously was enough to keep the audience hooked. And now, after a gap of more than a decade, the show is back!

The original cast, including Anang Desai, Rajeev Mehta, Supriya Pathak, Vandana Pathak and Jamnadas Majethia, who is also producing the show with Aatish Kapadia, will all reprise their roles for the third season that promises to be even more hilarious than the previous two. Confirming the news to Mumbai Mirror, Jamnadas Majethia, said, "We started the Khichdi journey on Star Plus and we are excited to be back working with the channel. Stay tuned for more."
