Press release:

Mumbai, Tuesday, July 19, 2016:


What happens when one amongst us turns out to be a humanoid? How does he live and survive in a human society? Sony SAB’s new show, Y.A.R.O Ka Tashan, takes us through the journey of Y.A.R.O, a humanoid who is on the path of self-discovery. Y.A.R.O has been created by the super genius scientist Mr. Govardhan Aggrawal and been placed with an artificial heart which makes him a robot with artificial intelligence but also with real emotions. He learns the essence of life, love and above all humanity and he soon embarks on an adventurous journey with his family and friends. The star cast of the show will see known faces like Anirudh Dave in the lead along with Rakesh Bedi and Malini Kapoor essaying pivotal roles. Y.A.R.O KaTashan is slated to premiere on the 19th of July 2016, every Monday to Friday, 19:30 hrs only on Sony SAB.


Produced by Dheeraj Kumar’s Creative Eye the story of the show is about Professor GovardhanAggrawal(Rakesh Bedi), a retired robotics engineerwho makes Y.A.R.O aka ‘Your Aptitude Remote Operator’ and considers him as his own son. Not having a child of his own, he has programmed him in such a way that he looks and behaves like a 22-year old human. Together with his wife, BeenaAggrawal (Malini Kapoor), they take care of Y.A.R.O.


Being a humanoid, Y.A.R.O is unfazed by societal conditioning, negative behavior or vengeful thinking. His intentions are always very pure and innocent and his efforts are always selfless and genuine to help people around him. The story takes an interesting turn whenY.A.R.O starts interacting with people around him. He soon meets his neighbor’snew young tenants, Amar, Prem and Shilpi and forges a strong bond of love and friendship. The trio become great friends and the plot chronicles their histrionics as they go about their day to day activities.



Mr. Anooj Kapoor, Senior EVP and Business Head, SAB TV


“Y.A.R.O KaTashan will help us see relationships with our family, friends, etc. in a new light. The concept of the show is young and refreshing. Since Y.A.R.O is blissfully unaware of the rules of the human society, he would experience the essence of love and humanity and in turn we would learn virtues of selflessness and generosity through his innocence.In line with our belief of ‘Differentiation through Innovation’, this show would regale the audience with its freshness and light hearted content.”


Mr. Dheeraj Kumar, Managing Director, Creative Eye Ltd

“It is my pleasure and pride to be associated with SAB once again for a refreshingly different and unique family humour show Y.A.R.O KaTashan. It is a story of an innocent humanoid who makes friendship with humans and ultimately achieves feats which human cannot. I am thankful to the SAB team for their endless support and we hope to make Y.A.R.O KaTashan as the finest show ever created for the channel.”

Y.A.R.O KaTashan premieres on Tuesday, 26th July, every Monday to Friday, 19:30 hours only on Sony SAB!
