Two is a company, three is a crowd! But what happens when one person plays three different people? One such story of triplets will be showcased on Sony SAB’s upcoming light hearted fictional comedy show, ‘Shankar Jai Kishan – 3-in-1’. A story about a paralyzed widow and her triplets, Shankar, Jai and Kishan. Their life takes a bewildering turn when in an accident only Kishan survives, and has to camouflage the truth by living three lives. How Kishan manages this triple role ka jhol and juggles between each character will be interesting to watch! ‘Shankar Jai Kishan – 3-in-1’ is slated to go on air from Tuesday, 8th of August, every Monday to Friday at 22:00 hours on Sony SAB.
Set in Delhi, the story centers on Kishan, played by Kettan Singh, a real estate agent and a perfect ‘Jugaadu’ in its true sense; a typical Delhi boy who finds a solution to every situation. Kishan dotes on his mother, enacted by Asawari Joshi, who is wheelchair bound due to a stroke she got on hearing news of her husband’s sudden death. Kishan, who loses his brothers Shankar and Jai in an accident, decides to hide the truth from his mother on his friend Babbar’s (Hemant Pandey) advice and lives all the three lives to prevent his mother from yet another shock.
Living the life of three is not easy! Shankar is a poised veterinary doctor who talks in fluent Hindi, whereas Jai is a rowdy police inspector. Each being a separate identity, Kishan juggles between the three lives. However, his life turns upside down when his mother emotionally blackmails him to marry and he ends up marrying three sisters, Twinkle, Dimple and Simple.
Essaying the role of Shankar, Jai and Kishan, the talented Kettan Singh plays the befitting lead in the show along with Falak Naaz as Twinkle Kapoor, Kirtida Mistry as Dimple Kapoor and Chitrashi Rawat as Simple Kapoor. As the story unfolds, viewers will witness a journey full of humor, romance, suspense and drama.
Mr. Neeraj Vyas, Sr. EVP & Head, Channel SAB and MAX cluster of channels
“With Shankar Jai Kishan – 3-in-1, we present a never done before triple role comedy show for the first time on Indian television. This show has the right mix of comedy, mischief and drama. The hilarious situations that arise when the protagonist is seen juggling and managing three characters is worth watching. The concept is fresh and compelling; I hope the viewers love it too.”
Siddharth Tewari, Founder, Creative Director, Swastik Productions
“Shankar Jai Kishan – 3-in-1 is a situational comedy which will entertain the audiences to the core. It is the first time on television that a series is made where the lead character enacts three completely different characters every day of his life just to keep his mother happy. Just like every action has an equal and opposite reaction, what ensues is a total laugh riot. We have had a lot of fun in creating it, and I am certain the viewers will enjoy every aspect of the series.”
