The new show is about a young couple belonging to two different cultures in the Capital
Producer Rajan Shahi, who recently celebrated Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai completing three years, is ready with his new show Jamuna Paar for Imagine TV. The show is set in New Delhi and the best part is you’ll get to see real Delhi! We heard that the show’s first schedule was shot at India Gate and the streets of New Delhi. Said Shahi, “India symbolises Delhi not to only India but also the world. I wanted to shoot around January 26 but due to security reasons, we could only shoot in the first week of February. We shot at night so there were lesser crowds to manage, especially for the scene where the lead pair meet each other for the first time. We shot at Chandni Chowk, Hauz Khaas, India Gate and at the Jamuna Paar area for more than a week.”
Jamuna Paar traces the love story of Vidhi – a talented yet shy fashion designer, and Bijju – a free spirited, carefree yet very talented boy who is part of his family business of weaving. Jamuna Paar is about the clash between two cultures of Delhi that are both vibrant yet different from each other. Often shows are not shot in the city or town where they are set, but Shahi has valid reasons for shooting in Delhi. “The show has to have the authentic flavour of Delhi. I also wanted to pay tribute to my hometown Delhi through the career I’ve established in Mumbai. Delhi has a charm of its own,” he says. We just hope that comes across in the show.
