Sony SAB is all set to begin 2018 with a lineup of exciting new shows, ‘Jijaji Chhat Per Hain’ will set the ball rolling. Set in Delhi’s Chandni Chowk, Jijaji Chhat Per Hain is an entertaining and adventurous story of Elaichi played by Hiba Nawab, a quintessential girl next door, the head of the household, Murari Bansal, played by Anup Upadhyay and their helpless tenant, Pancham, played by Nikhil Khurana. Launching on Tuesday, 09 January 2018, Monday to Friday at 22 00 hours only on Sony SAB.
The story revolves around Elaichi’s mischiefs and eccentricities, Pancham’s attempts to escape from her tricks and Murari’s wish of getting his daughter to amend her notorious ways and settle down in life.
In the show, Murari is a lehenga shop owner in Chandni Chowk who lives with his nagging wife Karuna, played by Soma Rathod and a free-spirited and outspoken daughter, Elaichi. Rebellious Elaichi, always has several pranks up her sleeve. She continues to go to school by intentionally flunking each year, even at the age of 22, to avoid living the grown-up life and dodge marriage.
Murari Bansal’s abode is always abuzz with Elaichi’s antics and her pranks. However, life takes a turn, when Murari rents out his rooftop room/ ‘barsati’ to Pancham. Elaichi finds a new target in Pancham, a 24-year-old boy from Agra who aspires to be a music director but instead lands up working with Murari so as to make ends meet. He moves to Delhi with his best friend, Pintu, both of whom have limited resources to bank on. Since, Murari is principally determined to not rent his ‘barsati’ to bachelors, Pancham fakes being married and disguises Pintu, played by Harveer Singh, as a woman posing as his wife.
But Pancham’s troubles are far from over, as somehow, Elaichi figures out his lie and blackmails Pancham into playing her pranks. Here’s where, Pintu as Pintu Jiji and Pancham as Jija Ji, come into a force of their own as their chemistry and comic timing charts out the hilarious journey of – Jijaji Chhat Per Hain
Adding to the humour are peripheral characters – the gossip monger local barber, played by Yogesh Tripathi, Sunita, Elaichi’s best friend played by Raashi Bawa and Inspector Himmat, played by Naveen Bawa also known as Daroga, each of whom come with their own set of peculiarities.
