Citizen Khan follows the trials and tribulations of loud-mouthed, tight-fisted, self-appointed community leader Mr Khan (Adil Ray), his long suffering wife Mrs Khan (Shobu Kapoor) and daughters Shazia (Maya Sondhi) and Alia (Bhavna Limbachia). This new family-based sitcom is set in the well-known British Pakistani area of Sparkhill, Birmingham.
Mr Khan is a larger than life character, with strong opinions and big dreams. The challenges he faces are those of many fathers – how to make ends meet, keep his wife and daughters happy and impress his daughter’s future in-laws. Things would be so much easier if everyone just listened to him and followed his lead, but his obsessively house-proud wife and two feisty daughters usually have other ideas.
Citizen Khan also stars Kris Marshall (Love Actually, My family) as mosque manager Dave.
Created by Adil Ray, the character Mr Khan has already featured in BBC Two comedy series Bellamy’s People, on Radio Four’s Down the Line and on his own online series on the BBC Comedy website. Citizen Khan is written by Richard Pinto and Anil Gupta (Goodness Gracious Me, The Kumars at No. 42) with Adil Ray.
