Disney Channel launches all new family sitcom: 'The Suite Life of Karan and Kabir' on April 8

Announcement  |  Corporate 

This summer Disney Channel India, the number one channel for kids and families is bringing twice the adventure and double the fun for all fans with the launch of a brand new fun-filled family comedy – ‘The Suite Life of Karan and Kabir’ on April 8, 2012.  Kids and families can “check-in” to the fun-filled shenanigans of 11 year old twins --- Karan and Kabir whose lives change when their mom Priti Jaiswal gets a job as the sole manager at the city’s swankiest hotel and, as part of her contract, an upper floor suite in which they all now live. As the twin pranksters get used to their new life, they try to turn the hotel into their playground, and along the way make friends and foe with the disparate staff, guests and residents.

Adding to the light hearted mischief and fun-filled adventure on the show, Disney Channel fans and their families can also win a once-in-a lifetime opportunity to taste Karan and Kabir’s five-star life for a month through an exciting contest “A Suite Life for You and Your Family”.  Three lucky viewers and their families can win an all expense paid stay in a Suite at their city’s best five star hotel by tuning into Disney Channel and answering a simple question that will be aired starting this week.

“The show will bring all-round family entertainment including many laughs and heartwarming moments coupled with adventures and pranks that make for a delightful watch. Both the show and “A Suite Life for You and Your Family” contest reiterate our commitment to offer the best family viewing and engaging experiences through our wonderful stories and lovable characters,” said Vijay Subramaniam, Business Head, Walt Disney Television International India.

While their mom works to keep them in line, the twins are elated with the amenities of their new home, especially room service, a swimming pool and game room with a candy counter. The hotel's teenage and down-to-earth gift shop clerk Vinnie eventually steps in as part-time babysitter and attempts to foil the twin's pranks.  To the chagrin of the strict, dutiful and serious hotel manager Mann Singh, as the twins turn the Suite into their home, they also turn the hotel into their playground. There is never a dull moment in their lives as their pranks include the hotel staff, guests and the hotel owner's teenage daughter and spoilt brat Rani Uberoi. The show trails the many shenanigans and pranks laid out by the mischievous duo while Mann Singh attempts to foil all their schemes along with Jung Bahadur the earnest bellman.

The show stars Namit Shah as Kabir, Siddharth as Karan, well-known actress Shruti Seth as the twin’s mother Priti Jaiswal,  Shivshakti Sachdev as the spoilt brat Rani Uberoi and Disney Channel’s popular and talented performer Tara Sutaria as Vinnie (short for Vinita Mishra), the bubbly gift shop clerk. Versatile actor Damandeep Singh Bagggan stars as Mann Singh and Shaynam Ladakhi as the bellman Jung Bahadur. The show is directed by Vasant Valsan and produced by ‘The Company’.
