You’ve just been named the casting director of your favorite television show (or movie franchise). The catch: you must replace the entire cast — with your friends and family. Who gets which role?
When I first glanced at the prompt, I felt that I would not have much to write about except list my favourite sitcoms that feature friends and family.
Those are as follows:
Everybody Loves Raymond
Yeh Jo Hai Zindagi (Hindi) and
Dekh Bhai Dekh (Hindi).
