What happens when Alok Nath battles it out with the unabashed Raos

In a society that believes in propagating its ‘set ideas’, it relies heavily on its seniors to school
the children. But what happens when a know-it-all uncle gets a taste of new-age behaviour. If
you’ve got a sneak peek of the Rao’s from Lionsgate Play’s first Indian original ‘Hiccups and
Hookups’, you know they aren’t the kind who will take all the gyaan coming their way, lying
down. When Alok Nath decided to make an entry into the Rao household, all hell broke loose.
The daredevils smashed his ideas and ideologies. Starting with the quintessential ‘peari pauna’
to the unnecessary lecture, Nath’s traditional ways were tossed out of the window as the young
ones gave their not-so-cool uncle a glimpse of their life and routine. As young, successful
people who know their mind, the siblings gave Nath a taste of their unabashed attitude.
Leading man Prateik Babbar says, “It was such a blast getting Alok Nath to shoot with us. The
idea was capture how shocking a no-filter family can be and Alok Nath being the epitome of all
things traditional for the youth, was the perfect one to shoot this with.”
Nath, who is the OG of all things sanskaari, says, “Sometimes its refreshing to make jokes on
yourself. There’s this impression of me but the video reflects that as actors we are self aware
and know how to have a laugh. It was great fun shooting this video. It was hilarious and candid
and this is the most fun I have had at work in a long time.”
The video, designed as a promotional tool for the first outing from Lionsgate Play, is bound to
have the audience rolling on the floor. Rejecting every conservative idea that he tries to push
through, Lara and Prateik drop some much-needed truth bombs. Maybe it’s too late to change
Uncle Nath but they do hope to change a few know-it-all viewers of theirs. Get ready to go on a
no-holds barred and fun ride with them!
Hiccups and Hookups starring Lara Dutta and Prateik Babbar and helmed by Kunal Kohli will
stream from November 26
