Amazon’s streaming service Prime Video has set 18 May as the date to launch Indian comedy series Chacha Vidhayak Hain Humare, created by and starring comedian Zakir Khan.

Amazon Chacha Vidhayak Hain Humare 14 May 2018The new series follows the success of the subscription video-on-demand (SVOD) platform’s stand-up special Haq Se Single, also starring Zakir Khan.

The show centres on the protagonist Ronny, his complex relationship with truth, and the intricate web of lies he builds, based on a false premise - that he is the nephew of a known legislator (Vidhayak). In reality, Ronny is a jobless 25 year old with no relation to the MLA who shares his surname.

“It is heartening to see that comedy is gaining such wide acceptance. After Haq Se Single, Chacha Vidhayak Hai Humare is my humble attempt at making people laugh, by crafting a comedy of errors, on a common theme that most Indians understand and relate to – name dropping and exploiting connections to people in positions of power,” said Zakir Khan, series creator and lead actor.

“The show is a fun look at a serious topic! With a unique plotline, I’m sure that Prime subscribers from all over the world will not only relate to the show but also find humour in each aspect of Ronny’s life. Personally I know that the show has been a whole lot of hard work for me, I have given it my best shot!”
