The Kumars At No. 42

Created by British comedy writers Sanjeev Bhaskar, Richard Pinto and Sharat Sardana, this BAFTA-nominated satire features renowned UK guests such as Cilla Black, Ray Winstone and Richard E. Grant. Largely improvised and without prepping interviewees, the hilariously outlandish series featured British actors Sanjeev Bhaskar, Meera Syal and Indira Joshi. Produced by London-based Hat Trick Productions.




Sanjeev Kumar (Sanjeev Bhaskar), an aspiring talk-show host, invites celebrity guests to his house to be interviewed, but when his family tries to get in on the action, everything falls apart. Conversations with celebrities are constantly interrupted by Sanjeev’s mother, father and grandmother (Meera Syal) as they simultaneously insult Sanjeev in Punjabi.
