Two of the most popular and loved sitcoms, 'F.R.I.E.N.D.S' and 'Everybody Loves Raymond' are set for a special one-off reunion episode this year. The entire cast of Friends sans Matthew Perry (in person) will be together for a one hour special honouring the legendary TV director, James Burrows on NBC and the cast of Everybody Loves Raymond will come together at the ATX television festival celebrating their 20th anniversary.
On these lines, there are some Indian TV shows which have not only created a cult following over the years but are also being extremely missed by their ardent viewers. While we know, a second season to these shows is highly unlikely, the least we hope as fans is watching the following shows' cast members together, just ONCE AGAIN!Khichdi

This one is hands down, one of the most hilarious and adored sitcoms, which is remembered even today... it will in fact be remembered forever. The Praful, what ezzz?', Jayshree chaai laa rahi ho ya bahar se mangva lu', Praful tu to gadha hai gadha' and many more one liners make one and all crack even today. The cast was an amalgamation of veterans and these stalwart actors reuniting for a special one-off and flaunting the vintage witty lines would be an experience to be cherished forever. What say?Zabaan Sambhal Ke

The 90s kids' will surely remember this sitcom. The show was an official adaptation of the British show, 'Mind Your Language' and was an instant hit, courtesy the impeccable performances by an ensemble cast, who made it a laughter riot. A reunion of this series is surely a dream, as some actors are not even working in the industry anymore, but we love to dream, don't we?Dekh Bhai Dekh

Another 90's show, which had one of the most illustrious and huge ensemble cast coming together to create a comedy riot. 'Dekh Bhai Dekh' is amongst one of the best shows of all time. The show had several reruns on popular demand, while the kids of today also started loving and admiring the true essence of vintage comedy. This dream star cast coming in one frame together once again would be one of those everlasting memories which will be sealed forever, where late actor Navin Nischol is sure to be missed.Hum Paanch

Before Ekta Kapoor became the saas-bahu drama soap queen, she debuted on the small screen with a sitcom, which she wouldn't have expected to go on and become one of the most loved series of all time. 'Hum Paanch' was so popular with its first season, that it ran for four years! It later spawned a second season in 2005 which ran for another year. But we are just too greedy, aren't we? Another special episode with all the cast members together wouldn't hurt our memories at all, and above everything, watching Vidya Balan on the small screen after such a long gap would surely be a treat!Remix

A rage amongst teens since its inception, 'Remix' was a story of the lives of 12 students revolving mainly around 4 principal cast members. The cool lingo used in the series like Hey Bhaggu', Duh Uh', Puhlease', Bana' and many more became extremely popular and kids started using them in their real lives as well. We would love to see a complete reunion of the whole cast, but the least we can hope for is Priya Wal (Anvesha aka Ashi), Raj Singh Arora (Yuraj aka Yuvi), Karan Wahi (Ranveer) and Shweta Gulati (Tia) re-uniting together as their characters and giving a special performance like their band performances in the show, as we would call it Remix style.Dill Mill Gayye

This youth medical drama was a sequel to the already popular show, 'Sanjeevani-A Medical Boon'. 'Dill Mill Gayye' adopted the same concept, revolving around the stories of interns in a hospital with specific focus on the love story of Dr Armaan Malik (Karan Singh Grover) and Dr Riddhima Gupta (Shilpa Anand/Sukriti Khandpal/Jennifer Winget). The show was a massive hit among the young people where Karan Singh Grover became an overnight sensation. Now a Bollywood star, Karan and the rest of the cast re-uniting once again would be a nostalgia visit for the millions of fans.Left Right Left

This show became a cult not only for being youth centric and adapting the flavor of the teens, but also because it did one of the most difficult things, which was making the genre of military drama a success. The patriotism factor was not lost in this drama, while the cast members were loved by the fans. Led by Rajeev Khandelwal, many actors from the show like Kunal Karan Kapoor (Yudi), Arjun Bijlani (Alekh) and Harshad Chopda (Ali) became huge telly stars later. Watching the cast of the first season and second season together once again would deserve a salute!V The Serial

The show was already in the news for its unique concept and was a hit once it was launched. Though it had a niche audience but was widely appreciated where several TV youth stars like Karan Kundra, Sara Khan, Raj Singh Arora, Kritika Kamra and many more played themselves on screen and the story revolved around the lives of them as celebrities. The reunion of this multi-starrer can surely happen either as a second season or as a special miniseries.Miley Jab Hum Tum

Another popular teen drama show, 'Miley Jab Hum Tum' was initially considered to be a risk as it was adopting a not-so-novel concept of young love stories and teenage drama, which was seen in Remix previously. However, beating all the odds, the show was a mammoth hit among the younger lot, with the fierce Nupur (Rati Pandey), obedient Mayank (Arjun Bijlani), shy, reserved and geeky Gunjan (Sanaya Irani) and the Casanova college stud, Samrat (Mohit Sehgal) becoming extremely popular. The reel life couple of Mohit Sanaya also went to become a real life couple. The principal cast along with the supporting cast reuniting once again would be amazing for the fans who console themselves watching Mohit and Sanaya together but miss the on-screen chemistry of Arjun and Rati.Sarabhai vs Sarabhai

The highest rated Hindi language show on IMDB, the most loved sitcom of all time, the show which was a critical and a commercial success, 'Sarabhai vs Sarabhai' redefined comedy on Indian television and made everyone laugh with sophistication. The bashing on Monisha (Rupali Ganguly) by the urban Maya Sarabhai (Ratna Pathak), Rosesh's (Rajesh Kumar) epic out-of-the-box poems, Indravadan's (Satish Shah) untimely humour and Sahil (Sumeet Raghavan) becoming a sandwich between his mother and wife was adored to infinity. This show had the most number of reruns as even the repeat episodes garnered a better TRP than some many on-going shows. The cast recently had a reunion at Sumeet's place which broke the internet. And considering the immense love they still have, we would love to see at least a one-off special reunion episode playing their characters.
