Voot Select is set to take the entertainment quotient a notch higher with a unique, bone-tickling family comedy titled, The Great Weddings of Munnes. Starring Abhishek Banerjee and Barkha Singh in the lead, the show is slated to release on August 4, and the audience is invited to join the baraat and get a sneak peek into the crazy antics of this one-of-a-kind couple, Munnes and Mahi, with the unveiling of the trailer.

Presented by Jio Studios, created by Raaj Shaandilyaa and directed by Sunil Subramani, and produced by ThinkInk Picturez, The Great Weddings… is a series of misadventures triggering a laugh-riot, depicting the unbelievable journey leading to Munnes’ great wedding(s), all the while capturing the hysterical escapades of this ‘not-so-eligible-bachelor-in-town’ and his unique Yadav clan.

The 10-episode series is based on the simple premise of Munnes’ innocent pursuit to find his happily-ever-after. He falls in love with the stunning sarv gunn sampurn (complete with in all good qualities!) Mahi and cannot believe his luck when she makes the first move. Just when the show starts resembling a mushy romantic classic and everything seems to be in place, a pandit’s prophecy adds a whole new horror twist to this love story.

From here follows a rollercoaster ride of trial and errors, with a fine blend of a slice-of-life tale as Munnes, Mahi and the quirky Yadav family embark on a mission to find a wife for Munnes.

Talking about the series, Abhishek mentioned, “While OTT offers an excellent platform to experiment, a show like this and a character so unique are truly rare.  I was eager to do a comedy and remember laughing uncontrollably during the script narration and instantly knew I was going to be a part of this show. The simple slice-of-life premise, coupled with raw humor makes The Great Weddings of Munnes an entertaining watch. This is my first show with Raaj and I’m truly impressed with his clarity of thought and his ability to draw out the best from every artist. I am super excited to see the audience’s reaction to our trailer.”

Echoing his thoughts, leading lady Barkha Singh shared, “The Great Weddings of Munnes is complete madness! We couldn’t stop laughing even while filming. Every situation and every character have been so beautifully sketched out that you can’t help but feel connected with their predicament. It is endearing and yet extremely hilarious. From getting those comic timings right to bringing alive those funny yet complex situations was like a masterclass in the comedy genre. We can’t wait to have the audience experience and enjoy this crazy journey of Munnes and Mahi. I am excited also because I tried a new look, which is different from what I generally do.”

Creator Raaj Shaandilyaa shared his thoughts on the show and said, “I couldn’t have asked for a better show to debut with, in the OTT universe. In the midst of numerous crime and thriller shows, in my first collaboration with Jio Studios, we were keen to create a memorable comic series for the family mounted on a film- like scale. That seamless connect reflects in the final product, where the chemistry and comic timing of every character is just unbelievable. I am so grateful to my cast and crew for bringing alive our vision so well! I am very excited to share this journey—our labor of love—with the audience.”

Director Sunil Subramani said, “I’m ecstatic about my first series, truly a dream debut. I am grateful to Raaj and Jio Studios for entrusting me with this show and we promise the audience a non-stop laugh riot. I couldn’t have asked for a more talented cast of Abhishek, Barkha and all the artistes. I can’t wait for the series to launch, and now it’s over to the audience.”
