Mahii is being very cautious that this show doesn't wind up like Balika Vadhu
With Nia Sharma opting out of Jamai Raja, which will take a leap of 20 years, sources say Mahii Vij will be the new face of the show along with Ravi Dubey. Nia has put in her papers as she doesn’t want to age on screen. Ravi, on the other hand will continue to be a part of the show as he will be shown as Siddharth’s — played by Ravi — son. The source reveals that talks are on with Mahii for the role opposite Ravi and though she is interested in the role, she is being cautious about it. “Last time she entered an ongoing show Balika Vadhu post a generation leap, the serial winded up within two months. It was her comeback show and she was highly disappointed. So, this time she is making sure that everything is clear-cut before getting on board."
In an interview with a leading daily Nia Sharma had said said, “I am leaving the show and it’s entirely my decision,” she says, adding, “There is no animosity between the production house and me. I decided to quit the moment I heard about the leap without wanting to know about the future track. I don’t know what was in store for me, but I certainly didn’t want to age. I have been associated with the show right from its inception and feel it’s about time I moved on. I now want to take up a female-centric show.”
The story of the show revolves around Sid Khurana (played by Ravi Dubey) who took on the responsibility of mending a troubled relationship between his strong, fiercely independent mother-in-law Durga Devi aka DD (played by Achint Kaur) and wife Roshni (Nia Sharma).
