The teaser announces that the comedy show will be available on digital platform Hotstar from April 14 onwards.
A source close to the show told Indianexpress.com: "While many shows usually don't launch during IPL, the makers and channel are confident that Khichdi will continue to shine even when the nation would be busy watching matches on television. The show has been loved by people all across and the makers promise to stand up to all expectations."
Yesteryear actress Renuka Shahane of Hum Apke Hai Koun fame is making a comeback with the sitcom. The actress will do a cameo but has an interesting role to play.
Khichdi revolves around a Gujarati family the Parekhs, who live in an old mansion. The family consists of people who solved several problems together but in their own inimitable style.
The first season of Khichdi aired from 2000-2004 and won millions of hearts. However, the second season, titled Instant Khichdi (2005), was pulled off air within a year. Later in 2010, the makers came up with a film Khichdi: The Movie with the same characters.
