When contacted, Producer Nitin Jai Shukla told us, “Bhalla Calling Bhalla is an interesting story of a Punjabi family, which is loaded with humour and also talks about the importance of family bonding, especially during this lockdown situation that we are facing. This has been shot really well, with everyone staying at home. The end product looks really good, considering that we have used everything that is possible of technology. This seems to be the new way of working during this lockdown phase and we are pretty excited about the product. Nikita was the one who believed in the concept and was sure of it being shot realistically. I am now very happy and we intend getting into the second season too.”
