Ananova reports that Keeping Up Appearances is to be remade in Hindi with an all-Indian cast.
The Indian producers have given the show a snappy new title - Kauva Chala Hans Ki Chaal, which means "the crow who tries to walk like a peacock." Hyacinth Bucket herself will be renamed Bulbul Sand.
The Indian Hyacinth will, like the English one, have a slutty sister and a lazy brother-in-law.
We think they could be onto something with this idea - how about an Indian version of Footballers Wives?

According to Marxist theory, cultural forms such as opera, classical music and the literary works of Shakespeare all fall under the heading of high culture. Low culture refers to a wide variety of cultural themes that are characterised by their consumption by the masses.
We might not be Marxists, but we do know we loved Footballers Wives. If you do too, you'll know what this is all about.
