"Namune", an upcoming show will bring the late legendary writer P.L. Deshpande and his characters alive on the small screen.

Purushottam Lakshman Deshpande, fondly known as PuLa, was a Marathi writer and humourist. People could relate to him and his characters, owing to the uniqueness of his humour and inspiration from everyday life.

Produced by Dashmi Creations along with creative producers Swapna Joshi Waghmare and Manish Raisinghani for Sony SAB, it will see an array of seasoned actors from the theatre and television space.

Niranjan, an insurance agent, will be played by Kunal Kumar. Sanjay Mone, in Deshpande's role, helps Niranjan hack the intricacies of life. Niranjan's wife Bhairavi Agnihotri (Toral Rajput), mother Kaushalya Agnihotri (Farida Dadi), his children Kavya (Saloni Daini) and Lalit (Aryan Prajapati) will be seen playing pivotal roles.

Visible only to Niranjan, PuLa - with his characters - teaches him to live lifeto the fullest and the art of finding joy in little things around him. Few of the most iconic P.L.

The show's producer Nitin Vaidya said in a statement: "It is an absolute privilege to bring alive the renowned characters of the Marathi legend P. L. Deshpande on-screen in Hindi. We have some infinitely talented actors to do justice to the show. I am sure viewers will be able to connect well with the stories."
