The Citizen Khan Christmas special will premiere on BBC One on Friday December 18th at 8:30pm, it has been announced.
Created by Adil Ray, Citizen Khan is set in the capital of British Pakistan – Sparkhill, Birmingham – and follows the trials and tribulations of self-appointed Muslim community leader Mr Khan and his long suffering family. The comedy series is produced by BBC In-house Comedy and stars Adil Ray as Mr Khan, Shobu Kapoor as Mrs Khan, Maya Sondhi as Shazia Khan and Bhavna Limbachia as Alia Khan.
In this year’s Christmas special, Mr Khan is embracing Christmas like never before. In fact, he is launching his own range of traditional halal mince pies with the help of a local business dragon. Meanwhile, Shazia and Amjad are trying to find somewhere else to live, because their landlord is selling their house and they can’t afford the deposit to buy it. Naani has a solution – she’s going to give them the money for the deposit. Her only mistake is entrusting it to Mr Khan. Mr Khan loses the money and to retrieve it, he heads to the Community Centre’s ‘Winter Wonderland’, where Dave’s putting on a show about a talking snowman that may or may not be able to fly.
