According to our source, " The story is loosely based on the old film Saudagar starring Amitabh Bachchan and Nutan. It is about a greedy vendor who gets married to a widow for money and as to how Shani Dev punishes him for his deeds. It is followed by a sequence where his wife comes and helps him."
We contacted Zeb Khan who confirmed the news, "Yes, I will be seen in an episodic of Shani Dev. The story is loosely based on Saudagar. It's an interesting character with a Rajasthani look. It was amazing to work with Pradeep Jadhav on this episode. He is a fantastic director."
The episode will be aired this weekend.
