Channels and production houses coming up with the second season of their daily soaps seem to be the latest trend in the television industry, few examples being Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon (Star Plus) and Punar Vivah (Zee TV).
The latest show to join this seasonal bandwagon is Big Magic’s Jai Maa Vindhyavasini. Well as per a reliable source, the first season of Jai Maa Vindhyavasini went off-air on 6 November, 2013, as the channel failed in their programming strategies.
“While, this show was a love story, most of the people mistook it to be a spiritual drama. In fact, the channel realized it only when their Jai Maa Vindhyavasini host Ridhi Dogra and Raqesh Vashisth went on to talk about it being a spiritual show at a press conference held a couple of months ago,” said a source.
Therefore, the makers are coming back with its second season which will be called Love Dosti Dua .
This will be a love story with Shiv (Shashank Sethi) and Gauri (Divya Mallik) playing the lead yet again. In addition, Zoya Khan joins in as Tulika to create a love triangle. But this time the lead couple will be seen as aspiring singers who will come down to Mumbai to fulfill their dreams.
Interestingly, the show that belonged to Khalome Media earlier is being currently produced by Big Productions.
Excited about the launch of season 2, Divya Mallik aka Gauri states, “Love Dosti Dua takes the story ahead to a new city with a whole lot of new characters thus adding more entertainment to the viewers. We are looking forward to the reaction of the audience; hope we receive the same kind of adulation for the new season as well.”
Avers Shashank Sethi aka Shiv, “The new storyline gives me a lot of scope to explore various emotions. As the story progresses, the audience will connect with my character when they see a part of themselves in me.”
Commenting on the show, Business Head, Big Magic Sunil Kumaran observes, “Love Dosti Dua encapsulates the aspirations of youth today. At Big Magic it is our constant endeavour to offer an eclectic programming mix that is inclusive of a larger audience base. I am sure audiences will love the new avatar of the show and will relate to it even better. The introductions of new characters and their quirks will undoubtedly up the entertainment quotient of the show.”
Talking about her role in Love Dosti Dua, an elated Zoya Khan says, “I am really excited about my role in the show; I complete the love triangle. It’s overwhelming that I have got an opportunity like this so early in my career.”
Love Dosti Dua will premiere on Monday, 11 November at 8:30 pm.
