Titled 'Sumit Sambhal Lega', the Hindi TV show will showcase Sumit as the Indian Raymond whose predicament is one that men face universally, of getting stuck in family situations post marriage that gives rise to a comical extravaganza.
Commenting on this, Steve Skrovan said, “It was such a privilege to be a part of this from the beginning. I got to learn about Indian culture and television and the whole experience has been great...Even though 'Sumit Sambhal Lega' will revolve around the man, the relationship between his wife and the family seems to fit perfectly in Indian culture.”
