Mumbai, Nov 23 (IANS) The popular 1988−television show "Wagle Ki Duniya" is back on the small screen with actor Aanjjan Srivastav as a detective in the new show.

Titled "Detective Wagle", the show went on air Nov 21 on Doordarshan and Aanjjan says age is not a hindrance in playing the role.

"It's not necessary to be young. There are detectives of my age, I have seen them. Detection is not an action−packed job, it is done from here (the brain)," the 64−year−old said here Thursday on the sets of the show.

"Wagle Ki Duniya" was based on the characters written by cartoonist R.K. Laxman. Actress Bharti Achrekar played Wagle's wife Radhika in the old show, while Sulbha Arya takes over in the new show.

Srivastav says he missed the show and the crew a lot.

"Yes, I did miss it. Especially the team − R.K. Laxman, Kundan, and Ravi Ojha. I am missing Ravi very much... He had strung together everything, he is unwell," he said.

"Detective Wagle" comes every Wednesday and Thursday 9:30 p.m.
