, who played the gutsy Sameera in Star One’s Choona Hai Aasmaan is back after a break with Zee’s new serial, Maa.
Produced by Shakuntalam Telefilms
of Banoo Main Teri Dulhann fame, Maa
will depict the sacrifices made by the mother in keeping her family in good stead. Chitrapama Banerjee
, who was earlier seen in Kamini Damini will be playing the mother while Amar Upadhyay
will be seen as her husband.
Talking about the story, Shyamshis Banerjee, Producer, Shakuntalam Telefilms
says, “The story begins with Chitrapama and Amar leading a happy life with three kids, who are aged in the range of 10-12 years. I can't reveal more than this at the moment!!”. While Vineet Raina plays the younger brother of Amar Upadhyay, Jhanvi Cheddha will be playing Amar’s sister.
Confirming Jhanvi’s role is Shyamashis Banerjee who says, “Jhanvi will play the protagonist’s sister-in-law”. We called the actress to talk to her on the role, but she remained tight-lipped and did not want to comment on anything.
However, a little birdie told us that Jhanvi will be playing the negative lead in the serial along with Vineet. The story might go in for a generation leap as the story progresses. On this, Shyamji opined, "We have not discussed about the leap as yet. But when one is dealing with a serial having kids, then we need to go for a leap sooner or later". The serial has already gone on floor and is expected to launch in September…
