Mr. Jayesh Patil, Programming Head, Star Pravah speaking about the show said, “We are

now looking to experiment with content in our prime slots. ‘Dhabal- Ek Taas Time Paas’ is Star

Pravah’s new approach to comedy and its uniqueness will definitely appeal to the audience.

This show has a fresh concept and we are looking at bringing it as a seasonal show. We first

experimented with a chat show and now we are merging fiction and non-fiction to create a new

format. Swwapnil’s presence will add to the charm of the show. We are sure that the viewers

will look forward to the show every week”

Swwapnil Joshi speaking about the show said, “As an actor, I have always tried to add a new

dimension to everything that I do. Dhabal is a very unique concept and probably the first time

on Marathi television that we will see fiction and non-fiction merging in a single show. I am

extremely excited to be a part of Dhabal where I will be the host, the actor and the narrator.

Other characters are also interesting and add a nice flavour to the show. This is challenging and

I am truly looking forward to it.”
