Revealed: First look of Sarabhai V/s Sarabhai
Most of us millennials remember Sarabhai V/s Sarabhai clear as day, a weekly episodic that was too quirky for Indian Television back in 2004.

A little too ahead of its times, it had introduced us to what I call Desi-Sitcom-Humour. The real underdog that got us through the gloom that early millennium television meant was first aired in the year 2004 on Star One which later ceased to operate but only caught on half-a-decade later. While still on air, it had hardly gathered any attention owing to a very refined humour that it endorsed opposed to the then rampant idea of slapstick comedy only to become a cult classic, a straightaway favourite through its multiple reruns.

As young, urban India waited in silent anticipation for their beloved show to return, Producer JD Majethia and Star India's Digital Platform Hotstar had quietly released a teaser from the sets of the show's second season. About a couple of weeks ago, fans had gone berserk over some 15 minutes of Facebook Live footage of the look reveal of Television's First Family, The Sarabhais on Hotstar's Facebook page. As excitement mounted, yesterday Hotstar released what everyone's calling the Sarabhai Naming Film and fans, social media handles, news media websites are going bonkers again. In a little over 2 minutes, the Sarabhais are asking a favour out of an ardent fan-base who has returned the gesture by making the promo film go viral.

The Sarabhais, amid a chaotic cacophony of competing title suggestions from the family members, are asking you to christen or name their second season and also promise to use it as their title property for the brand new season, this time a web-series on Hotstar. What do you get? As Sahil Sarabhai (remember the ONLY sane guy on the show?) puts it, "Aapka Naam….Roshan!"

Watch the film on Hotstar's Facebook page or 'Leaked' on YouTube to get a hang of exactly how your most adored TV-Fam has evolved into, after the 7 years' leap that the show's taken. Want to enter the contest? Go to the comment section of the Facebook post and make a suggestion(s).
