With a legacy of highly entertaining and dynamic comedy shows, Sony Entertainment Television brings to you an absolute fresh format in form of The Drama Company. Produced by Lil Frodo and Frames Productions Company, The Drama Company will feature an eclectic mix of the finest comedians in a theatrical plot portraying different characters each week. The show will explore multiple genres of comedy– from topical to physical comedy and offer viewers a complete dose of laughter and unlimited entertainment.
Starring Mithun Chakraborty as Shambu Dada, fans will see him playing a character on Indian television for the first time. He will be the ring master of a crew of a crew of highly misfit characters including Ali Asgar, Dr. Sanket Bhosale, Sugandha Mishra, Krushna Abhishek, Sudesh Lehri, Ridhima Pandit, Tanaji and Aru Verma.
Every episode will feature the team of misfits aspiring to make a blockbuster play to impress Shambhu Dada in exchange for a promise of a world tour. But as luck would have it, nothing will go right. The hilarious turn of events will push the madcap team to start afresh with a brand-new play every week. Little do they know that Shambu Dada is a sham, whose is running his own business by selling tickets for the play.
