Mumbai: Pocket Aces’ long form content channel Dice Media presents Home Sweet Office, a fun lighthearted show where family dynamics meet workplace dynamics, boundless ambition meets day-to-day nothings, and a buzzing startup meets a sluggish family business. Dice Media has entertained us with the super-hit series Little Things, What The Folks! 1 & 2, and Adulting last year.
Home Sweet Office is an amusing entertainer from Dice Media, where two cousins from Delhi – Adhira and Shagun Agarwal – find themselves in the middle of an exciting set up trying to build a business of candid wedding films. The twist in the plot comes from the only problem: their buzzing office is smack in the middle of their buzzing Baniya home! And everyone’s invited. Working from home means that no decisions can be taken without the unwanted advice of friends, family and neighbors. Home Sweet Office dives deep into the typical middle-class Delhi household. It explores different aspects of the work-from-home dynamic, which is so popular in today’s millennial audiences, to see how these two worlds collide, creating hilarious, and often awkward, situations.
The two lead protagonists are played by Adhira Agarwal (popular digital face Barkha Singh and Shagun Agarwal (Malayalam film actor Isha Talwar). Barkha Singh has starred in Girls on Top, Yeh Hai Aashiqui and Love by Chance. She’s also a popular MTV VJ and is currently hosting the game show, Loco. Isha Talwar is a south Indian actress who has starred in films such as Thattathin Marayathu, Gunde Jaari Gallanthayyinde, Thillu Mullu and Bangalore Days and more recently in Bollywood films Tubelight and Kaalakaandi. The father is played by veteran actor Yogendra Tiku, mother (Shabnam Vadhera) and brother (Pranay Manchanda of Baked fame).
