So it’s no secret that we all loved Hip Hip Hurray while growing up and the show continues to be one of our all time faves. If you’re wondering where the most loved kids from the show are now, you can find all their details here. On re-watching a few of the episodes from the show, I stumbled upon some information about it that I don’t think a lot of you know of. What did I do about it? I made a list of all this fun trivia to share with loyal fans (like me) of Hip Hip Hurray; after all, aaj humara kal apna…
Vinay Pathak not only played Vincent Sir, the English teacher we all knew we wanted, but he also wrote the lyrics of the title track. AND he was the dialogue writer for the show. Take a bow, Vinay! We owe you a significant chunk of our childhoods.
Nupur Asthana, the directer of Hip Hip Hurray, went on to direct another gem on Indian TV, Mahi Way! Amazing, right?
Suchitra Pillai played Alakhnanda Ma’am on Hip Hip Hurray and Samantha Tremayne played her student Sam on the show. Years later, the teacher-student duo reunited in Dil Chahta Hai! Yup, Suchitra played Saif Ali Khan‘s annoying girlfriend and Samantha was the creepy girl who crushed on Aamir Khan.
Check it out!
Hip Hip Hurray was shot in St Mary’s school in Mazgaon and the alumni from the school shows this fact off with utmost pride even today!
KK and Hema Sardesai sang the iconic title track! The duo’s other popular song together was many years later in Khushi – Haye re!
Ronnie Screwvala is definitely an industry stalwart. But did you know that he was also one of the producers of this epic show.
What a revelation!
