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 another son, while Mukul Harish who essayed the role of Madhur in Agle Janam Mohe Bitiya Hi Kijo 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 will play yet another bahu".
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".
Gavie Chehal who makes his comeback after Mohe Rang De with this show confirmed that he plays one of the sons.
Jignesh Joshi too accepted that he is part of the show, while Deeya Chopra refused to comment. Alok Narula and Mukul remained unavailable.
We tried contacting Producer Rashmi Sharma but she was unavailable.
We hear that the show will go on floor by the second week of January, and is expected to launch at a prime time slot in February..
Here comes yet another show from the makers of the #1 show, Saathiya..
