Created by Adil Ray, Citizen Khan is set in the capital of British Pakistan – Sparkhill, Birmingham. It follows the trials and tribulations of self-appointed Muslim community leader Mr Khan and his long suffering family. Khan is a larger than life character, a small man with big dreams and strident opinions. 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 have other ideas. The comedy series stars Adil Ray as Mr Khan, Shobu Kapoor as Mrs Khan, Maya Sondhi as Shazia Khan and Bhavna Limbachia as Alia Khan.
In the show’s opening episode plans are being made for Shazia’s forthcoming wedding to her handsome but dim fiancé Amjad (Abdullah Afzal). Mrs Khan’s on the warpath because Mr Khan’s forgotten to book the wedding venue, but it shouldn’t be a problem as long as he can persuade mosque manager Dave (Kris Marshall) to do him a favour.
