We’re sure that varied emotions will come to life as families can sit together and watch this beautifully conceptualised show.”
Rajshree Ojha, Director, said, “Family plays an integral part in every individual’s life and with Potluck we have tried to portray that very sentiment. Every character of the Shastri family defines and enacts the true meaning of a family. I hope this show brings folks together and gives them a reason to plan their own potluck. In these crazy times, we all came together and tried to bring a Smile to the audiences’ face, which is the best medicine. We are happy to collaborate with SonyLiv to offer this sweet and spicy ‘Potluck’ to our viewers.”
Pavneet Gakhal and Gaurav Lulla, Creators, said, “As a concept, Potluck looks at the social structure of ‘Family’ through a very different gaze. The modern Indian family has evolved a lot over the last few years and these changes are at the heart of this show. Every character and situation has been crafted keeping in mind the contemporary familial setup and how those interactions have changed in recent times. We have tried to maintain an urban, cosmopolitan flavour to the show, bringing out the nuances of everyday situations in a unique manner. The show also avoids typecasting the bonds within the family which itself leads to funny, wholesome and relatable moments. With our collaboration with SonyLiv, we hope to reach a wider set of audience who can enjoy Potluck with families.”
