ALTBalaji is probably the biggest digital content provider in India with its variety of content with 17 original shows in Indian languages across various genres such as romance, mystery, drama and comedy. They also have started targeting entertaining original shows for kids and have launched short, hilarious regional stand-up comedy videos in Marathi, Punjabi, Hindi, Gujarati and are launching more episodes in Tamil and Telugu.
With all this, ALTBalaji has made another announcement today by signing two behemoths in Kay Kay Menon and Barun Sobti to star in their upcoming show titled THE GREAT INDIAN DYSFUNCTIONAL FAMILY.
Both will play brothers on the show with Kay Kay Menon being the elder brother of Barun who is driven by ambition and passion, while Barun’s character believes on decisions driven by his heart and not by the norms imposed on him.
This will be Kay Kay’s first attempt in the digital space, he recently said, “The story and screenplay of the show is extremely well done. The makers have achieved a difficult task of exploring the relationships of a dysfunctional family without it being 'in your face' and 'abrasively filmy'. ALTBalaji has a wonderful team, full of beans, led by the enthusiastic energy of Ekta Kapoor! It feels great to be associated with a project like this that has the makings of a very enjoyable web series”.
While Barun who has been in the digital entertainment industry added, “It’s a kind of script that requires the actors to perform really well. I am looking forward to the challenge.”
THE GREAT INDIAN DYSFUNCTIONAL FAMILY’s story revolves around these two brothers with family issues and will focus on their relationship and the drama that it unfolds.
