Flop Show only had 10 episodes but it is one of the most loved sitcoms of all time. Jaspal Bhatti played the lead role and directed and wrote the show. His wife Savita Bhatti produced the show and also acted in all the episodes as his wife. The show was a satirical take on the socio-cultural problems faced by the common man in India at the time.
Flop Show first aired on DD National on 31 October 1989.
