Hats Off Productions has produced the movie and it has been directed by Aatish Kapadia. In a statement, Vijay Singh, CEO Fox Star Studios India said that they have received positive feedback from their research of the audience about the movie based on 'Khichdi". He added that the audience found this comedy to be much funnier than many of the recent comedy movies as very few of them can be watched with entire family.

The Parekh family will be shown trying to fulfill some ridiculous tasks through a series of amusing situations. Producer J. D. Majethia is also very optimistic about the success of the movie based on the TV show 'Khichdi". He said the film will redefine the comedy in Indian films.

Well, we hope the movie is able to charm the audience like the comedy show did.
