Varshita! is a comedy show that airs exclusively on Maisha Magic East. It brings to fore the challenges of inter-racial marriages, coupled by the traditional and cultural clashes that exist between an Indian and African family that find themselves in a situation that proves difficult to untangle. The Bhatt’s, an Indian family and the Wangombe’s discover that their children Varshita and Donnovan have been secretly dating for 10 years even as the Bhatt family has been planning a traditional wedding for their daughter to another Indian family.
The situations the couple and their families find themselves in make for a crazy but usually hilarious comedy that depicts a crazy, pathetic and tragic relationship of two lovers who find themselves in an unexplainable love affair.
Varshita! airs on Maisha Magic East every Saturday at 7.30pm on DStv (Channel 158) and GOtv (Channel 4).
