Mumbai: SonyLIV is set to launch a satirical comedy show titled “Chalo Koi Baat Nahi” on 20 August. The six-episode show is co-created by comedians Amit Tandon and Gursimran Khamba and it focuses on issues of a common man centered around media, trains, sports, hospitals, schools, and the environment.

The show will be hosted by Vinay Pathak and Ranvir Shorey, who will be coming together on-screen after almost a decade. It also features Kavita Kaushik, Karan Wahi, Suresh Menon and Atul Khatri alongside talent from the digital world such as Ankush Bahuguna and Kriti Vij amongst others. The show, originally in Hindi, will be dubbed in two languages – Tamil and Telugu.

“Bringing diverse content to the digital space, SonyLIV aims to widen its reach and cater to the viewing interest of the audience," said Sony Pictures Networks India, head – content, Sony Entertainment Television and digital business, Ashish Golwalkar. "We also strongly believe that relatable comedy shows in the entertainment space is the need of the hour. And Chalo Koi Baat Nahi, a satirical sketch comedy with great performances put up by the artists. The show interestingly captures the challenges of the common man while bringing in loads of laughter. As showrunners, Gursimran Khamba and Amit Tandon have been successful in creating an out and out family entertainer."

"It's been truly fun and rewarding an experience working on Chalo Koi Baat Nahi. It's unlike any other comedy-drama; it's old school and the kind of show you can watch with your whole family," said the showrunner Gursimran Khamba. "Besides, it’s a very classical format - In this show, we look at subjects like education, environment, etc. in India. The show brings to light important challenges that we face on a daily basis in an entertaining and light manner. Viewers can expect laughs, a lot of fun cameos from familiar people will help one unwind at the end of a hard day."

“It has been such a tremendous experience creating this show, working with Gursimran and a very talented crew that has given their best," said the showrunner Amit Tandon. "There are about four sketches in each episode making it a total of 24 sketches and that increased the complexity of casting and production processes and involved a lot of switching between locations. It's been a journey that we won’t forget, and we hope the audience enjoys watching it as much as we did making it."
