Speaking on the thought process behind the new comedy reality show, Nikhil Sheth, President, Sales, Mahuaa TV, stated, "Hansi Ka Tadka is a big show from Mahuaa. Most of the comedy shows which happen on Hindi GECs, the humour mainly comes in from UP, Bihar belt. And since we are the market leaders in these markets, we felt we must do a programme of this nature.”

Sheth also said that Hansi Ka Tadka will give a platform to local stand up comedians to showcase their talent and they are confident it will strike a chord with the viewers. “The Right Picture (TRP) which has done shows like Dance India Dance, are going to produce this show,” he noted.

Mahuaa is the absolute market leader in the Bhojpur belt and Smith and Jones Hansi Ka Tadka will be a key driver show for them.”

Gupta further noted, “We recently launched Cricket Ka Tadka across all Digital platforms. Smith and Jones Hansi Ka Tadka is the next step in execution of that strategy. Digital at one end and Regional at other is our core focus.”
