With almost every new show promising its viewers something novel and exciting, Jyoti, which will air on NDTV Imagine next week, is no different.The show revolves around a girl named Jyoti (Sneha Wagh), who is the eldest child of the family. Her father, Kamal Kishore (Sanjay Batra), is paralyzed and moves about in a wheelchair. Hence Jyoti takes care of the entire family as she is the only earning member.Producer Sunjoy Wadhwa says, â€œJyoti is about a complete woman. She earns for her family without thinking about herself. She lights up the lives of everyone around her but her life is in complete darkness. Unfortunately, she doesn’t get the kind of love and respect she needs from her family.â€
Besides Wagh and Batra, the cast of Jyoti includes Zaida Parveen as Padma (mother), Sriti Jha as Sudha (sister), Varun Khandelwal as Deepu (the only son in the family) and Srinidhi Shetty as Sushma (the youngest daughter). Kalpana Bora will be playing Jyoti’s best friend Kalpana.
Wadhwa says that although the show is not issue based like Balika Vadhu (his show on Colors), there is something that will attract viewers. He says, â€œAfter 25-30 episodes, a major twist will emerge. Jyoti will realise that her salary matters more to her family than herself. Thatâ€™s when she falls in for a guy named Amin and a very different kind of love story begins.â€
Letâ€™s hope this serial lives up to itâ€™s a promise of variety. Jyoti will air Monday to Thursday at 8:30pm and debuts next week.
