Our producer Asitbhai Modi’s philosophy of producing a family-oriented, informative and a humorous show has won the hearts of millions of viewers across the globe.”
“Before shooting every scene, I study the script and its dialogues. If necessary, I add wit to make the scene more humorous. I discuss the script with actors and incorporate their inputs too in the dialogues. Also, I motivate my actors to deliver their best performance. I purse them to follow the motto: Play, Pray and Perform. The philosophy of our production house, Neela Telefilms headed by veteran producer Asit Modi; is to encourage actors, directors, technicians and the crew of TMKOC works as a united team,” he added.
TMKOC has gained huge popularity in each and every country because in every episode, it communicates social messages in a humorous manner. The show depicts comedy in a lucid way. Which is way, this show is a grand success amongst adults as well as the kids. The show’s viewership is massive currently.
