The 1988 popular TV show Wagle Ki Duniya based on characters created by famous cartoonist R K Laxman is to launch in a new avatar soon as Detective Wagle and is expected to hit the small screen in two months.

Anjan Shrivastav will again play Wagle. “We can’t have anybody else in his shoes,” says Rupesh Gohil, the producer and director . “Anjan is a household name as Wagle. I thought, why not back a winning horse? Why experiment?”

Bharati Achrekar however, will not play Anjan’s wife. “We have cast Sulbha Arya in that role. We need some change and Sulbha and Anjan share a good rapport,” says Gohil.

Detective Wagle, will also have stories about a middle class family and their daily mundane, yet exciting lives but with an added twist. Mr Wagle would also solve societal issues in a fun and clever manner. “Anjan does not play a professional detective in the show. Towards the end of every story, he will take up cudgels,” says Gohil.

Sort of a Wagle meets Rajni, we expect.
