Ekta Kapoor's online platform ALT Balaji is following its comedy series Galti Se Mis-Tech and Fourplay with a sex-comedy that sees Chunkey Pandey hopping aboard the digital bandwagon. Yet at odds with the title, Baby Come Naa, Pandey says "there's nothing sexual" about the series.

Talking about the venture, an adaptation of Paritosh Painters' English and Hindi play Double Trouble, Pandey says, "It's like a Jerry Lewis film, a romcom sex comedy, but there is nothing sexual about it. You can watch it with your family; you have to be intelligent to catch on to the double-meaning innuendos. I've worked with Paritosh Painter before, as I have with director Farhad Samji too in Housefull."

The venture boasts of a power-packed star cast, including Shreyas Talpade — making his Hindi web series debut with the show — Kiku Sharda, Shefali Zariwala, Manasi Scott, Neetha Shetty and Rajendra Chawla. For Pandey, a foray into the web space was inevitable, given that "entertainment has become an individual experience today". Talking about how content consuming trends differ in his own household, he adds, "My daughter [Ananya] watches [shows] on her laptop, and my wife and I too watch [different things]. Ekta is the content queen; she has a clear target audience."

Talpade and Pandey are getting together for the third time, after having previously collaborated on Housefull 2 (2012) and Apna Sapna Money Money (2006). "Both the films were blockbusters. So, I am looking forward to this one too."
