Hindi entertainment channel Star Plus has acquired the rights to the official adaptation of the popular English sitcom Everybody Loves Raymond.
The channel plans to make a Hindi adaptation of the show and have titled it Sumit Sambhal Lega. In addition, the original writer of Everybody Loves Raymond, Steve Skrovan has also been roped in to work on the Indian version to oversee the creative process.
Commenting on this, Steve Skrovan said, “It was such a privilege to be a part of this from the beginning. I got to learn about Indian culture and television and the whole experience has been great. Star Plus is the largest brand and most appropriate to get this show to people in India and even though Sumit Sambhal Lega will revolve around the man, the relationship between his wife and the family seems to fit perfectly in Indian culture.”
