Sony SAB Presents Sajjan Re Phir Jhooth Mat Bolo

By Tricitynews Reporter
Chandigarh 22nd May:- Big or small, lies are lies! But what happens when you get entangled in a web of lies and start living in a partially superficial world? That is exactly a situation that Jaiveer, our protagonist, has put himself into in Sony SAB’s new show Sajjan Re Phir Jhooth Mat Bolo. The show promises to take you on a jaunt loaded with love, lies and laughter. Premiering on Tuesday, 23rd of May, 2017, every Monday to Friday at 21:00 hours, the show will keep viewers guessing what will happen next as the plot of this hilarious chronicle unfolds.
The story revolves Jaiveer Chopra played by Hussain Kuwajerwala and his family who are one of the wealthiest families of South Mumbai. The Chopra clan is headed by a single father Paramveer played by Tiku Talsania, who lives with his son Jaiveer and daughter Jenice, played by Urmila Tiwari.
History sometimes repeats itself, in this case, just like his father, Jaiveer also falls in love with a simpleton woman, Jaya, played by Parvati Vaze, who belongs to a middle class family. In fact, he always has been so impressed by his father’s style of wooing and proposing to his mother that he wants to do the same for his ladylove. Which is, by not revealing his wealth, status and family heritage and getting to know Jaya and make her love him as genuinely and simply as possible? For this, he lies to her about being poor and that he works hard by doing odd jobs each day to make ends meet. As luck would have it, Jaya is impressed by his personality and determination but Jaiveer’s grand plan takes a hit when Jaya tells him how she and her family detest the rich and how her father Lalitrao Lonkhande played by Sharad Ponkshe, believes in an ideology that one should only earn how much they require to survive and the rest shall be spent to help the poor and needy.
Here unfolds the crux of the show, where his one innocuous lie buries him under a mountain of subsequent lies as he cannot risk telling the truth to Jaya for the fear of losing his love. In order to marry Jaya, Jaiveer devises a plan to create a fake poor family out of The Chopras. And, herewith starts the comical journey of hits and misses and hilarious sticky situations. Now, it is for all to see how successfully does this transformation take place and will the Lokhandeys find out about Jaiveer’s lie?
Some of the other supporting crucial roles to the plot are played by Rakhi Vijan (as Monica Malpani, family friend, romantically attracted to Paramveer), Monica Murthy (as Priya Walia, Paramveer’s secretary), Gaurav Dubey (as Deepak Tijori, Jaiveer’s best friend) amongst others
Tune-in to Sajjan Phir Jhooth Mat Bolo from 23rd May, Monday to Friday at 9PM daily to tickle your funny bones and be part of the coolest and funniest comedy show on Indian television!
Neeraj Vyas, Sr. EVP & Head, Channel SAB and MAX cluster of channels, said that with Sajjan Re Phir Jhooth Mat Bolo, we are presenting a fresh take on situational comedy arising simply due to the vice of ‘lying’. The show reveals how the protagonist and other characters get hilariously entangled in a web of lies in an effort to help the son impress his lady love. The erstwhile series, Sajjan Re Jhooth Mat Bolo, resonated really well with our audience and we hope they love the new version even more.

Comedy is the purest form of emotions and he is happy to present a show like Sajjan Re Phir Jhooth Mat Bolo.

GST Impact on Chandigarh

By Tricitynews Reporter
Chandigarh 22nd May:- 14th Meeting of GST council which concluded on 19.05.2017 at Srinagar had laid down the rates of tax under GST. As per the document uploaded on CBEC website there shall be five rates of tax for goods and services. Such rates are 0%, 5%, 12%, 18% and 28%. For the goods maximum rate has been kept at 28% whereas for services maximum rate is 18%. GST is expected to be rolled out from 01.07.2017 and henceforth where the supply of goods and/or services within Chandigarh by a taxpayer registered in Chandigarh shall attract Center GST and UT GST. Where the taxpayer registered in Chandigarh sells goods outside the city, Integrated Goods and Services Tax shall be charged.  With government all set to roll out GST, the new tax regime is going to far reaching impact on Chandigarh, increase in Tax Revenue: Before GST, Chandigarh Administration dint had any powers to levy tax on the huge service sector established in Chandigarh. With most of services being charged at the rate of 18%, Chandigarh is going to collect 9% tax on the services which are rendered in the city beautiful. All the professionals and service providers like Chartered Accountants, IT Companies etc. which were earlier out of ambit of Chandigarh administration shall after GST come under their tax net.
It makes impact on Real Estate, with idea of warehouses and distributorship being dropped by companies, it is expected that most of the commercial properties are going to get vacated. This would result in fall in rental value of commercial properties in Chandigarh.
Impact on Start up, with the rental value getting cheaper and presence of Special Economic Zone in Chandigarh, new business and start-ups will be encouraged to commence business here. This will lead to generation of employment for youth in the tri-city.
It also make impact on Service Sector, with service tax rate increased from 15% to 18%, the service sector will become costly for a common man. Service sector has a huge share of Chandigarh’s economy. The common man has to pay more for receiving beauty parlor services, personalized services etc. With services becoming costly the food at luxury hotels and other luxury services like spa and sauna will become heavy on the pocket of the taxpayer. These issues might prove inflationary for the residents of Chandigarh.
Own Law and Dual Control: For the first time, union territory will have its own law without any intervention from Punjab and Haryana Government. Decisions regarding the tax structure shall be taken by centre through GST Council. The taxpayer shall now be controlled by both Chandigarh Administration and Central Excise and Service Tax Authorities.
