Mumbai: Comedy Central celebrates April fool’s Day with the best of F.R.I.E.N.D.S in a way never seen before. Crafting an insane laughter riot, starting 6am, Comedy Central airs the world’s highest-rated sitcom in a new avatar, with one character in every episode speaking in the conspicuous voice of a prominent Bollywood personality, that too in Hindi.
Commenting on the quirky direction of the channel’s special-programming, Hashim Dsouza – Head of Programming, English Entertainment, Viacom18, said “Comedy Central has been the home of F.R.I.E.N.D.S and we’ve continually presented this iconic show through fresh and innovative programming that week-on-week keeps it at the pinnacle of most-watched shows in English entertainment. Delving deep into the spirit of April Fools, we’re giving viewers a unique and bizarre version of their favorite sitcom, ensuring they enjoy this ultimate prank-day. For the longest time, Indian fans could only imagine and hope for a Desi F.R.I.E.N.D.S, but now that wait is over as we give them a glimpse to a whacky Hindi-speaking avatar of the show.”
This wild marathon of Rachel, Monica, Phoebe, Ross, Chandler and Joey will find their voice with much gusto from some of the most iconic stars of Bollywood including Sonam Kapoor, Kajol, Kangana, Amitabh Bachchan, Saif Ali Khan and Shah Rukh Khan in this string of rib-tickling episodes.
The funniest episodes of F.R.I.E.N.D.S with a dab of Desi-ness all-day-long on will air on Comedy Central.
