Mumbai (UNI): Noted actor Pankaj Kapur who plays Mussadilal Vishwakarma in hugely popular sitcom 'Naya Office Office' on Star One will team up with wife Supriya Pathak for a forthcoming episode on September 29. Supriya who was last seen in comedy serial 'Khichdi' portrays a brash, reprimanding, loud, domineering and bold character of Mahabali for a special episode of Naya Office Office to be aired at 2030 hrs on September 29. The real life couple will be acting after a hiatus of 8 years for the small screen. The last television show they had done together was 'Mohandas LLB'. Pankaj Kapur and Supriya Pathak will also be seen acting in two films together sometime this year.
Talking to UNI, Supriya said both of them have just finished shooting for a film called 'Dharam'. She said she writes short stories and wanted to compile them into a novel. ''Nothing concrete has happened so far,'' she added. In the episode this week, Mussadilal Vishwarkarma will face trouble at the passport office. Mussaddilal is intimated that his Passport is ready for collection and he must come with relevant proof to collect the same. ''He arrives and gets his new passport for which Bhatia has to be given Mithai and Shuklas paan his due. Mussaddilal happily gives them their due and proudly goes through his newly acquired passport only to find mistakes in the address, age, and gender.
In the new passport, he is a she, much younger than he should be, and stays at a place which is no where close to his locality,'' a Star One press release issued here today said. He is shocked when he learns what all he would have to do to get it all in order. As this is going on, Mahabali (Supriya ) walks in, raging with anger and ready to take the whole department to task for issuing her a passport where she is mentioned as a male, living at an address unknown to her, and an age which is closer to her uncles, the release added.
