New Delhi, Aug 14 IANS | 2 months ago

"OMG - Oh My God", a comedy loved by Bollywood audiences for its satirical take on people's blind belief in god, seems to have inspired a new and upcoming TV show titled "Neeli Chhatri Wale".


In the weekend fiction show, actor Yashpal Sharma will be seen as Bhagwan Das, who 'meets' and 'befriends' god.

Produced by Ashwini Dhir, the director of films such as "Son of Sardaar" and "Atithi Tum Kab Jaoge?", the show will narrate Bhagwan Das' journey of listening to his inner voice through conversations with god, said a statement.

The story seems much in tune with "OMG - Oh My God!" which featured stellar performances by Paresh Rawal and Akshay Kumar.

Noted for his critically acclaimed performances and serious roles in mainstream Hindi films, Yashpal plays the quintessential common man in "Neeli Chhatri Wale"

As Bhagwan Das, a middle-aged, middle class man based in Kanpur, he will be seen constantly torn between his personal and professional life.

"The show explores a unique relationship between man and god as his friend. Based on the philosophy of 'God is within us', 'Neeli Chhatri Wale' is a light hearted drama highlighting Bhagwan Das and his relationship with Lord Shivaye who emerges in front of him - not as the hallowed, much revered avatar but as a young, smart, contemporary youth wielding a blue umbrella," the statement read further.

The Zee TV team is currently hunting for the perfect actor to essay the critical role of Lord Shivaye.
