Someone Shares Clip From Desi Version Of TV Show FRIENDS, Twitter Calls It Worse Than Coronavirus

There are some TV serials which have been showered with lots of love from audiences and the American sitcom Friends is one of them. The American show which was basically a story of six friends (Monica Geller, Rachel Green, Phoebe Buffay, Joey Tribbiani, Chandler Bing and Ross Geller) was aired on TV from 1994 to 2004. The show has a global fan base and it is loved by the Indian audiences as well.

It is kind of obvious that when something is hit, there are many who try to copy it and repeat its success. In 1999, Zee TV came up with an idea which was heavily inspired by Friends and it was titled as Hello Friends. The makers copied the scenes, situations and even the dialogues from the original but some changes were made in order to fit it in the Indian perspective.

The Indian version of Friends starred Simone Singh (Monica), Nikhil Chinapa (Ross), Anil Dimbri (Joey), Cyrus Broacha (Chandler), Aparna Banerjee (Rachel) and Maria Goretti (Phoebe). 26 episodes of the show were aired on TV but not many people watched it or knew about it.

Recently, a Twitter user shared a clip from the show and called it more harmful than the coronavirus pandemic. The tweet read, “Experts are saying coronavirus is the worst pandemic of our time? thats cute. I think you are forgetting about summer of 1999 when the entire executive board of Zee TV did acid and decided to make desi Friends”.
