Rashmi Sharma's Sunrise Productions, makers of the #1 show across all GECs Saathiya Saath Nibhana on Star Plus
, is now making a culturally rich show for Zee TV
, titled Mr. & Mrs. Kaushik ki Paanch Bahuen.
The story is about the elderly couple Mr. and Mrs. Kaushik who hail from Jaipur. They have five sons, all of whom are married and well settled. The best part of the concept is that all the five daughters-in-law of the house are from different cultural backgrounds. We hear that one bahu is a Maharastrian while another is a Punjabi, and there is also a girl who is born and brought up abroad..
Our source states, "Vibha Chibber who played Kaushalya in Star Plus
' Bidaai has been roped in to play the role of Mrs. Kaushik. Jignesh Joshi
will play the eldest son of the family. Gavie Chahal
of Mohe Rang De
fame will play one of the sons who is a cop in the show. Alok Narula
who was seen in Rashmi Sharma's Raja Ki Ayegi Baraat

will play the youngest son. Deeya Chopra
who was last seen in Pratigya will play one of the bahus in the show who is a girl from London. Himani Chawla
from Mata Ki Chowki

When contacted, Vibha Chibber confirmed the news saying, "Yes, I have given my nod to playing the role of Mrs. Kaushik. I had got lot of offers after Bidaai, and I accepted the best role I got. However, I cannot talk much as of now, as the show has not yet gone on floor".
