The popular 1988-television show Wagle Ki Duniya is back on the small screen with actor Aanjjan Srivastav as a detective in the new show.

Titled Detective Wagle, the show went on air Nov 21 on Doordarshan and Aanjjan says age is not a hindrance in playing the role.

"It's not necessary to be young. There are detectives of my age, I have seen them. Detection is not an action-packed job, it is done from here (the brain)," the 64-year-old said on Thursday on the sets of the show.

Wagle Ki Duniya was based on the characters written by cartoonist R K Laxman. Actress Bharti Achrekar played Wagle's wife Radhika in the old show, while Sulbha Arya takes over in the new show.

Srivastav says he missed the show and the crew a lot.

"Yes, I did miss it. Especially the team - R K Laxman, Kundan, and Ravi Ojha. I am missing Ravi very much... He had strung together everything, he is unwell," he said.

"Detective Wagle" comes every Wednesday and Thursday 9:30 p.m.
