The first in this new family-based sitcom set in the capital of British Pakistan - Sparkhill, Birmingham. Citizen Khan follows the trials and tribulations of loud-mouthed, tight-fisted, self-appointed community leader Mr Khan (Adil Ray) and his long suffering family, wife Mrs Khan (Shobu Kapoor, who you may recognise from EastEnders many moons ago) and daughters Shazia (Maya Sondhi) and Alia (Bhavna Limbachia). The challenges he faces are those of many fathers - how to make ends meet, keep his wife and daughters happy and impress his daughter’s future in-laws. It's formulaic and rife with stereotypes, but the BBC are proud of it.
