Jhilmil Sitaron Ka Angan Hoga: Kamalika Steps in as the New Kalyani Devi

Mumbai, Aug 25, 2012 (Washington Bangla Radio / Free-Press-Release.com) Who doesn’t remember the Gaytari Chachi of Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi? Her authoritativeness and shrill expressions, sent shivers down the nation’s spine. Post this stint there was no stopping her! And now she is back on the small screen with another graceful role in Sahara One’s ‘Jhilmil Sitaron Ka Aangan Hooga’.

Kamalika is visibly excited to essay Kalyani Devi, a character that is strong willed, control freak and dominating but at the same time incredibly urbane. Nursing ahead the tradition of ‘Ghar-Jamai’ that has been running strong through the generations, Kalyani Devi’s ultimate aim of finding an ideal ‘Ghar-Jamai’ for her youngest daughter Angana likewise her other two daughters faces a rebellion in the form of Aakash eventually being supported by her own daughter. The all out confrontation between Kalyani Devi and Aakash will be carried forward by Kamalika as she steps in to Kalyani’s character right at the point where Sudha steps out of it.

Commenting on this change, Sooraj Barjatya, Rajshri Productions, says, “Sudhaji is one of the very respectable and seasoned actress in the entertainment arena and has the capability to essay any character flawlessly. A through professional, from the inception she was the chosen one for the role of Kalyani Devi.

Initially the role didn’t demand much of her time but as the show progressed and her character got recognized all across and the script demanded her to be in almost all the scenes. But with prior commitments to her other ongoing projects it was difficult for her to devote more time for our show. That’s when she approached us and the channel, Sahara One to mediate and find a solution. With much required help from Sahara One to resolve this issue the team decided to cast someone else to essay the role of Kalyani Devi”.

Elaborating further on the new Kalyani Devi, Sooraj Barjatya said, “Filling Sudhaji spot was something that we were dreading! Someone with such a caliber is difficult to find. It was then that acclaimed actress Kamalika Guha Thakurta was approached who gave her consent without batting an eyelid. Kamalika is equally an great actress and a renowned theatre personality. We at Rajshri and Sahara One are sure that kamalika will do equal justice to the character of Kalyani Devi”.

Sudha’s decision to quit the show came at a time when the role had just started becoming a household name. But unlike many other important actors of other shows, Sudhaji’s preference to leave the show has not burnt bridges. In other words, the decision was amicable.

Catch the new Kalyani Devi on Jhilmil Sitaaron Ka Aangan Hoga on Sahara One at 9:00 PM on Monday-Friday.
