Replacements are nothing new in the world of television and there are shows where actors have been replaced overnight. The latest replacement has been in Zee TV’s serial Jamai Raja where Shiney Doshi has been replaced by Ssara Khan. She is the new Mahi on the show. Apparently, the falling ratings of the show and absence of chemistry between Shiney and Ravi has been the reasons behind this decision.
In August, Jamai Raja saw a big leap where the original heroine of the show Nia Sharma who was playing Roshni quit the show. They were the original protagonists of the show and the show started off as a quirky comedy. Based on the Anil Kapoor – Madhuri Dixit starrer Jamai Raja the show started on a promising note with Achint Kaur playing the strict mother in law of Ravi Dubey. The show had a good run and Ravi Dubey became a star with the show’s success. The show boasted of sizzling chemistry between Ravi and Nia and that’s why every scene featuring them was a romantic scene but later there was nothing more in Ravi – Nia and Achint’s story to explore. Achint quit the show and then a leap was taken. That’s when Nia decided to quit and Ravi Dubey was retained to play his own son Satya.
Post leap Mouli Ganguly stepped into Achint’s shoes and Shiney Doshi was on board. The show moved again with Satya that’s Ravi son and Mahi’s love story. Though Ravi and Shiney looked good together they failed to match Nia and Ravi’s sizzling chemistry.
In a bid to generate better onscreen chemistry, Ssara Khan has been cast as new Mahi instead of Shiney. Ssara has just wrapped her Pakistani show Bekhudi in Karachi and her stint in Kawach as Monjulika also got over recently. This is third time Sara is replacing an actress. First it was Priyal Gor in Ram Milayi Jodi and then it was Maheck Chahal in Kawach. Hope with Sara’s entry the show gets a facelift and the ratings also improve. Sara has started shooting for the show with Ravi and her entry will happen in tomorrow’s episode only.
