Sandwiched Forever which rides on a humorous plot with incredible performances, is SonyLIV’s first attempt to cater to this need gap. Studio Next has roped in a great bunch of talent to execute this. We are delighted to have Bharat Kukreti and his team write and creatively supervise the show.

“Art imitates life is a truth, and I feel nothing inspires us more than the disarming and relatable tales of Indian households. Sandwiched Forever is one such quirky portrayal of an Indian family struggling to make sense of their newfound relationships. I am delighted to have worked with a group of brilliant, versatile actors who have taken the show to another level with their impeccable comic timing and performances. We are thrilled to collaborate with SonyLIV and Studio Next to bring this comedy to the audience.”
Kunaal Roy Kapur, Actor
“I am drawn to sitcoms as a genre so when I heard the narration for Sandwiched Forever, it didn’t take me long to give a nod. Not only was Sameer an extremely fun and endearing character to portray but the story in itself deals with a situation, most Indian couples find themselves in, which made it relatable to the core. We had a great time shooting the series and I hope the chemistry spills over to the screen. Looking forward to the premiere on SonyLIV.”
Aahana Kumra, Actress“Sandwiched Forever is the story of the quintessential Indian household that we all can relate to. The show underlines a host of hilarious and awkward instances between two families who are stuck together by a marriage and are now compelled to adjust with each other. I have thoroughly enjoyed playing Naina and it was no less than a riot filming this series with such talented actors. I can’t wait for the audience reactions to this show.”
