Here’s what actors Aanjjan Srivastav and Bharati Achrekar have to say about their comeback with Wagle Ki Duniya – Nayi Peedhi, Naye Kissey -
Aanjjan Srivastav, who will play the role of Srinivas Wagle said, "For years, people have addressed me as Wagle and have given so much love to Wagle Ki Duniya. However, this time on Sony SAB, we are coming with a fresh new version of Wagle Ki Duniya that will look at issues of today’s common man, which I am sure everyone will be able to relate to. I still miss our golden days but I am glad that my colleague Bharati Achrekar is joining us for the show too." He added, "Since it's the centenary year of the legendary Cartoonist and a reputed journalist of yesteryears R K Laxman, I wanted to be able to pay my homage to him and the directors of this evergreen show, late Kundan Shah and Ravi Oza. Just then this opportunity came to me, to be back with the new version of Wagle Ki Duniya with Hats Off Productions and Sony SAB. I look forward to entertaining our audience once again with relatable, light-hearted and fun stories."
Bharati Achrekar, who will essay the role of Radhika Wagle said, “It is extremely overwhelming to be back with one of the most beloved television shows in India. Wagle Ki Duniya struck a chord with the common man of 80s and 90s and this newer version will do the same for today’s common man and his issues. Today, when everyone is inside their homes, carrying all their work problems with them, Wagle Ki Duniya aims to bring a whole new world for our audience, where they forget their worries and learn to laugh at their problems. People have reinvented their family bonds during the past 9 months and they will relate to this show on another level. I am glad someone took the effort to bring Wagle Ki Duniya with a newer perspective and I can definitely say they are doing justice to this show.”
