Only Ravi Dubey from the original cast will be retained on the show
Zee TV’s popular show Jamai Raja all set to take a big leap with season 3 where the story with start once again with new mother-in-law and son-in-law relationship. Mouli Ganguly will be the new saasu maa stepping into the shadows of Durgeshwari Devi’s (Achint Kaur) shoes . Ravi Dubey will play the Jamai again this time though as his own son.
So, all characters of the present show will changed and Roshni (Nia Sharma) will be shown dead. Only Ravi Dubey from the present season will remain and take the story forward. The show recently had entry of Payal (Mouli Ganguly) and season 3 will revolve around Payal and her daughter. Ravi will play Siddharth that is his own character s son and will woo Payal’s daughter. We will see Ravi’s equation with his new momma-in-law.
Mouli is remembered for her portrayal of the dutiful daughter in law, Shaina Sikand in Kaahin Kissi Roz, where she had a tiff with her mother in law Ramola Sikand (Sudha Chandran). But now it’s time for her to play a saas. Though Mouli s role will be glamorous but she will have evil shades. She will be seen constantly at logger heads with her Jamai that is Ravi Dubey.
Currently, a search is on to find the new face play Payal’ s daughter. The makers of the show are looking for a big name to play the lead. Nia Sharma refused to play an older character after the leap and decided to quit the show. She will be going on a long holiday as she wraps up her last shoot schedule.
This is the third time, story change is happening in the show. Recently the show entered into season 2 with new faces and characters but seems like there is no further story left to play with.
Launched in 2014, Jamai Raja was inspired from the Anil Kapoor, Hema Malini and Madhuri Dixit starrer Jamai Raja, which was about a strict mother in law and how her daughter’s husband changes her. Unlike the saas – bahu shows on air, Jamai Raja was one of few shows with a male protagonist. The show is produced by Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar.
The show had a decent run on the charts with seasoned actors like Achint Kaur, Ravi Dubey and Nia Sharma. But somewhere the mother in law track was lost in the lead pair Roshni-Sid’s love story. Bored of her role, Achint Kaur also quit the show recently.
So this time makers are going by the original show’s premise. Hope the new face off of saas and jamai in the new season brings a fresh appeal to the show.
