Endless meetings, chasing deadlines, meeting targets, client’s problems, corporate challenges, where 9-5 life is anything but boring. It’s time to create some fun and wipe away all the Monday blues.
Welcome to ‘The Office’ a place where the boss wants to be your friend as he proclaimed as a ‘fun’jabi boss. ‘The Office’ is created for Applause Entertainment by BBC Studios India. The show has been directed by Rohan Sippy and Debbie Rao. The series depicts the everyday lives of office employees.
In Indian version, the show is set in Faridabad and registers the lives of the employees at Wilkins Chawla. The boss played by Mukul Chadda tries desperately to keep his employees morale high all the time. Gopal Dutt plays Chief Chamcha Officer. Gauahar Khan also has an important role to play.
Director Rohan Sippy said, “The Office really strikes a chord, as I feel in India we can connect only too well to the mayhem caused by an infuriating, delusional desi boss! The strange quirks of his employees make them entertaining, but relatable too – they endure him while making an epic adventure of their mundane everyday challenges! With Applause Entertainment and BBC Studios India, and above all a terrific young cast & crew, we have had the opportunity to create the Indian version of an exceptional show that will be streaming on Hotstar as their first comedy Special.”
Actor Mukul Chadda who portrays the character of Jagdeep Chadda said, “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. And that is why Jagdeep Chadda has called himself the CFO of Wilkins Chawla – Chief Fun Officer.”
Gauahar Khan added, “In any workplace we usually come across personas or situations that are somewhat universal – competition, office romance or inter-personal issues. In the show, all of these have been tied together with humour, making it extremely relatable for people who actually deal with these issues on a daily basis.
The Office streams on Hotstar Specials from 28th June 2019.
