ZEE Studios’ Fuffad Ji, the hit comedy is now streaming on ZEE5, the world’s largest streaming platform for South Asian content. Major Punjabi stars Binu Dhillon and Gurnam Bhullar are headlining the cast.
In a Punjabi household, ‘Fuffad Ji’ is treated with the utmost respect and the movie is based on this dynamic. However, the rule of the older ‘Fuffad Ji’ (Dhillon) is challenged by the new son-in-law (Bhullar) of the family. The plot further thickens when both characters end up having a tussle, sometimes in a very subtle, strong or quirky way.
Binu says: “These types of roles inspired by real-life traditions appeal to me and I am glad that we are able to keep our culture alive by showcasing a part of our traditions. Fuffad Ji is about one such tradition of giving extra importance to sons-in-law within the Punjabi culture. I’m sure that many will relate to it and laugh with it.”
Speaking about the slate of Punjabi-language films on the streaming platform, Archana Anand, Chief Business Officer, ZEE5 Global, also comments. “We’ve received an overwhelming response from our viewers across the globe for our blockbuster Punjabi movies like Puaada, Qismat 2 and Jinne Jamme Saare Nikamme. We look forward to our latest release Fuffad Ji, striking a chord with and continuing to entertain our viewers across markets.”
Fuffad Ji is helmed by Pankaj Batra, written by Raju Verma and co-produced by K Kumar Studios. Jassie Gill, Jasmin Bajwa and Sidhika Sharma also star.
