Warner Bros. Discovery India to launch ‘I Should Have Stayed Home’: the journey of two brothers
Mumbai, 29 August 2023: Warner Bros. Discovery India is set to launch an exhilarating new series titled ‘I Should Have Stayed Home’. The show follows the journey of two brothers, Sid Mewara and Shanky Jayakumar, as they embark on a thrilling adventure through the rugged terrains of Himachal Pradesh and Ladakh.
The series, which premieres on September 11th, will be available on Discovery+ and Discovery Channel. Viewers can expect to witness the brothers navigate challenging obstacles and test their resilience and brotherly bond. Equipped with their trusty 4X4 vehicles, Sid and Shanky will venture into breathtaking landscapes, facing misadventures along the way.
Sid Mewara, a venture capitalist and trained chef, expressed his excitement about the show. Despite the brutal, scary, and exhausting experiences they encountered, Sid explained that they loved being on the edge of disaster. “Hoyega Hoyega” became their rallying cry, and they giggled their way to the finish line.
During their extraordinary voyage, the brothers will encounter numerous obstacles. Sid, accustomed to a life of luxury, must confront the realities of mountain life and break free from his comfort zone. Shanky, a seasoned biker, will face a new set of trials and tribulations. Together, they will navigate the untamed Himalayan wilderness, relying on their instincts, wits, and the kindness of strangers to fulfill their mission.
Sai Abishek, head of factual and lifestyle cluster, South Asia, Warner Bros. Discovery, highlighted the decision to cast the well-known social media duo, the Big Forkers, in the series. This reflects their commitment to nurturing emerging talent within the Warner Bros. Discovery portfolio. The duo brings a fresh voice to the table and promises ample entertainment for viewers, aligning with their ethos of fostering in-house talent.
The series will cover over 1000 kilometers through the awe-inspiring Himalayas, where the brothers will battle harsh weather conditions and conquer treacherous mountain paths. The question remains whether they will emerge triumphant or succumb to the challenges they face. Viewers can catch ‘I Should Have Stayed Home’ on September 11th at 9:00 pm on Discovery Channel or stream it on the discovery+ platform.
Sid Mewara, originally from the United States, is a venture capitalist and former chef with a preference for luxury living. He aims to reconnect with his adventurous side and push his limits. Shanky Jayakumar, a consultant with the World Bank and a self-proclaimed ‘speed junkie’, is eager to explore life’s adventures and test his boundaries. The combination of Sid’s physical limitations and luxurious preferences, along with Shanky’s laid-back attitude and discomfort driving on narrow mountain roads, will make their journey even more fascinating to watch.
