Hubahu is a Hindi language Indian television miniseries. The story revolves around a pair of twin sisters who exchange places for a lark but end up getting intricately involved in each other's lives.[1] The story is an adaption of the 1985s hit American two-part made-for-TV movie Deceptions, starring known Hollywood actors Stefanie Powers and Barry Bostwick, in which Powers starred as twins who swap places leading to dire consequences.[2]

The series premiered on Sony TV on February 7, 2002, and aired every Thursday at 8:30pm IST.[3] The series starred Sandhya Mridul in the lead who played the characters of both sisters, Aditi and Ananya.[4] Produced by Parvati Balagopalan and Milind Soman (Season 1) and Tony Singh and Deeya Singh (since Season 2) it was shot in Mumbai and Bangkok.[3] The channel ended the series after it completed 30 episodes due to high cost of production, especially shooting overseas which cost half a million rupees an episode.[5]


The story portrays the lives of twin sisters Aditi and Ananya who have very different personalities. Aditi is a bored and neglected housewife in Pune who's lecturer husband has no time for her. Ananya is a sophisticated art dealer in Bangkok. Bored and fed up with their own lives they decide to switch identities as a game for a week but then things go haywire.[6]
