The cast of popular TV show Khichdi, which is now being made into a movie, is seeking the blessings of Shah Rukh Khan who made a successful transition from being a television actor to a Bollywood superstar.
Produced by Hats Off Productions and written and directed by Aatish Kapadia, the film stars actors like Anang Desai, Supriya Pathak and Girish Sahdev.
The big screen adaptation, which is also expected to feature Satish Shah and a special appearance by Farah Khan, will be released by Fox Star Studios Oct 1.
The film's cast had apparently written a letter to Shah Rukh and even gathered outside his Bandra house Mannat to release the first look of the film Friday. But Shah Rukh didn't turn up.
The actors too hope that the film is as successful as the series -- just like Shah Rukh, who created a niche for himself with serials like Fauji and Circus and carried it on to the big screen with movies like Deewana, Darr, Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge and Baazigar.
Khichdi, the TV show, is best remembered for its simple humour and characters like Hansa, Praful, Babuji, Himanshu and Jayshree.
