Paying tribute to popular comedians of Bollywood from different eras, each captivating episode of Safar Filmy Ka will feature veteran actors such as Juhi Chawla, Prem Chopra, Divya Dutta, Rajpal Yadav, Sanjay Mishra, Asrani, to name some, share their cinematic experience in the comedy genre.

Anooj Kapoor, EVP and Business Head, SAB TV, said, “The style, content, and pace of Indian movies have advanced vastly over the years and so has the way in which the film industry treats comedy. Comedy as a genre has evolved so much that comedy-centric movies are turning out to be blockbusters. ‘Safar Filmy Comedy Ka’ is a tribute to the contribution of comedians and industry veterans towards the genre of comedy. The show will offer differentiated contented to its viewers and a great family viewing experience.”

“Almost 90 per cent of the young generation is not aware of the comedy done in the 50s and 60s; so, this is fresh content that we are providing our viewers. We have started the show with only 13 episodes going on air as we would like to see how the show fairs, and the length and breadth of content available to us because we are scratching the surface which is the bottom line of our business. So, within three to four weeks we will have a fair idea about what the show holds for us,” Kapoor added.
