Sony MAX brings back short format originals with ‘Dr Pran Lele’
Laughter is the best medicine, and you will experience this with Sony MAX’s latest short format original – Dr Pran Lele. The 2-3 minute sketch comedy segment brings alive the concept of a filmy clinic that caters to noted Bollywood stars. The show revolves around the fictitious character of Dr. Pran LeLe played by the noteworthy comic Kiku Sharda and his assistant nurse CPR (Chinni Prakash Rawal) played by the emphatic Gaurav Gera. The show is bound to leave its viewers rolling with laughter and gasping for air, as the doctor-nurse duo are seen diagnosing their starlet clientele and ill-advising them on medical procedures. Sony MAX has been a pioneer in the short-format originals segment and has reimagined entertainment with shows such as Bittu Bak Bak, MAX Fully Deewaney and Producer Champaklal. Dr Pran Lele will take this legacy of comedy fillers ahead giving audiences enough reason to have a hearty laugh in between super-hit movies starting June 29 on Sony MAX.
In the show Kiku Sharda is seen as a delirious doctor dolling out prescriptions for medical procedures like vasectomy to treat a simple ailment like tooth ache or even worse or a liver transplant to treat a bout of common cold. The inevitable give and take between the doctor and his nurse with their combined comic timing is the perfect concoction that dishes out rib-tickling comedy thus, living up to Sony MAX’s philosophy of ‘Deewana Bana De’.
Dr Pran Lele will be loaded with an ensemble of comedians like Sugandha Mishra, Dr. Sanket Bhosale, Mubeen Saudagar, Vikalp Mehta and Jamie Lever playing the Bollywood stars visiting the clinic.
Kiku Sharda, Actor:
I play the character called Dr Pran Lele who has no clue about what he's doing. He doesn't know his profession too well and that's what makes this character extremely interesting and funny. I have always found short format gags interesting and it is something I can do it with ease, hence I took this opportunity and I hope the viewers will enjoy watching me in this new avatar.
Gaurav Gera, Actor:
Dr Pran Lele, is something I am eagerly waiting for, I have always loved being on television and this time I got a chance to entertain people via my female role of a nurse. The concept is something new for me, I have never worked on small-format for a channel. I am super excited for this show and look forward to working with my friend Kiku Sharda.
