Indore, Madhya Pradesh, November 15, 2019: Once again, it’s a grand celebratory win for &TV as the channel celebrates immense love pouring in from the audience for two of its most popular shows, Bhabi Ji Ghar Par Hai and
Happu Ki Ultan Paltan. The actors of two popular shows recently proved that they are not only the most talented actors but also loved by the viewers. Winning the Nation’s heart with their light hearted humour and relatable content, the shows swept 4 accolades at the recent 19 th Indian Television Academy (ITA) Awards that were held in Indore.
Bhabi Ji Ghar Par Hai has carved its niche for itself in the television industry. The show that surprises its audience with every episode stole the night by bagging the Best Television Show award in the comedy category. Expressing their excitement and emotion at this overwhelming moment, Producers, Sanjay Kohli and Benaifer Kohli said, “Bhabi Ji Ghar Par Hai has been one show on television that never leaves a dull moment for the audience. There are always new and fresh episodes that are being culled out to match up to the audiences’ viewing preferences. I am glad that our show has been awarded with such an honour.”
It is not just an acknowledgement for its perfect comical content and timing, but its actors also won awards for their outstanding performances. Our very own chulbuli Angoori Bhabhi won the Best Actress award for her act as Angoori in the show. An excited Shubhangi shared, “It’s an honour always to be recognized for your efforts and your talent. This award is not just a sign of my ultimate success but also a motivation for me to work harder and become the best version of myself. This couldn’t have been better than to receive an award in my own hometown, Indore and be recognized as one of the well-known actresses on Indian television.”
Like Shubhangi Atre has been loved and recognized by the audience for her role, the potbellied Daroga Happu Singh was not too far behind. Yogesh Tripathi who has been ruling the television space with his Daroga Happu Singh act in &TV’s show Bhabi Ji Ghar Par Hai and at the same time, making the audiences laugh out vociferously with his comic antics in Happu Ki Ultan Paltan bagged the Best Actor in a Supporting role award for Bhabi Ji Ghar Par Hai. Reigning the industry for years not just in films but also on television Himani Shivpuri aka Katori Amma received an award for her Legendary Contribution to Television.
Talking about winning his first ITA award for the show, Yogesh Tripathi said, “It’s honestly quite a surreal and overwhelming moment for me. The journey of playing Happu Singh in Bhabi Ji Ghar Par Hai has been a long one and I am extremely delighted to have received this award. I never imagined back then that a dynamic and peripheral character like Happu could make such a difference to my life. I am grateful to every single person who has supported and loved Happu just the way he is and I hope to keep entertaining the audience just like I have all this while.”
Talking about her big win Himani shares, “I am overwhelmed to receive this honour. It’s been a couple of years since I have been working in the film and television industry and being recognized for the same is way beyond happiness. We artists thrive on the audience’s love and to get in the form of awards and recognition feels like life has come in a full circle. I am thankful for the time when I decided that I’ll be an actor. I am glad that I could sail
through the hurdles that I had to face in my initial days and that they didn’t stop me from dreaming big and reaching here. There are many people who I equally wish to share credit of my work with, that including all the incredible directors I have worked with all these years, my many co-stars, my parents whom without none of this would ever be possible. I am thankful to my son who has supported and encouraged me and given me the reason to be at it even today. It’s all for my audience who believed in then and still continue to believe in my work now.”
Big congratulations to all of them!
