Default Star Cast/Story/Photos/Videos: Zee TV - Jai Somnath- Ek Prem Kahani

Jai Somnath, the next big Historical show on Zee TV will have Yash Tonk, Amrita Raichand, Avinash Wadhawan, Pankaj Dheer essaying key roles..


Jai Somnath – Ek Prem Kahaani is the next historical offering from Zee TV. The show produced by Indra Media is slated to be one of the biggest in Indian Television. The unit has already finished their first outdoor schedule in Ranthambore, Rajasthan. Media had already reported about the popular Bollywood baddie Sadashiv Amrapurkar being part of the show.

TellyBuzz gives readers a bit more on the casting..

Yash Tonk who has always been a Ekta Kapoor loyalist will for the first time be seen in a historical. The beautiful and gorgeous Amrita Raichand, who is popular for her Whirlpool ads plays a central character. Avinash Wadhavan will play one of the leading characters, along with veteran actor Pankaj Dheer.

Our source states, "Pankaj Dheer will play the physically handicapped King Kireep. He has a daughter who will be the central face in the show. The King's loving brother will be played by Yash Tonk and he is the King of Baruch; Amrita will play his wife, Rani Gayathri Devi. Avinash Wadhavan is the very able Emperor of Gujarat, Samrat Vallabh Dev. Sadashiv Amrapurkar essays a guy who runs a play on Devdasis".

The unit recently shot some very realistic and exemplary scenes at a royal palace near Jaipur. Jai Somnath will present to the viewers a well-etched factual and historical story of the past.

When contacted, Pankaj Dheer confirmed his presence in the show.

Avinash Wadhavan refused to comment while we could not get thro' to Yash Tonk.

Amrita Raichand who was earlier seen in weeklies Time Bomb 9/11 and Mahi Way confirmed the news, "Yes, this is a very new genre for me and I am excited to be part of the show".

Jai Somnath is expected to launch after the Cricketing summer ends, and will in all probability replace Jhansi Ki Rani which is gearing up for its climax phase right now.

Watch this space for more on the show..

Zee TV's upcoming show Jai Somnath- Ek Prem Kahani gets a few more biggies in the cast...

Tellybuzz was the first to report the major cast of Zee TV and Indra Media's upcoming show Jai Somnath- Ek Prem Kahani, which include veteran actors like Sadashiv Amrapurkar, Yash Tonk, Amrita Raichand, Avinash Wadhawan, Pankaj Dheer essaying key roles in the show.

And the latest to add in the list are Siddharth Vasudev last seen in Ek Veer Stree ki Kahaani Jhansi Ki Rani , Gajendra Chauhan (fame Mahabharat), Sonika Handa (last seen in Do Hanso Ka Joda), Shashi Sharma (Bollywood actress). That's not all for the cast, as even Bollywood and Bhojpuri actress Sadhika Randhawa will debut on small screen with Jai Somnath.

A source says, " Siddharth Vasudev will once again be seen in a negative character known as Bhanuman which is also a key role in the story. Gajendra Chauhan will be seen essaying a king known as Raja Padpa Singh and he will execute the image of a bold India through his character. And Shashi Sharma, sticking to her popular genre will be seen adding up poison in everyone's lives."

We contact Siddharth Vasudev and he confirmed his presence, "I am part of the show and once again after the break I will be seen in a negative role but with some more meatiness."

We contacted Shashi Sharma but she remained unavailable.

Gajendra Chauhan confirms, "I will be essaying a brave King who has fought against the Afghans to save his kingdom and that's all I can say."

The cast has already started shooting for the show and have completed its 20 episodes. The show launch will happen in June.

Zee TV's Jai Somnath- Ek Prem Kahani gets a revamp in title...

Tellybuzz had earlier reported about Zee TV coming up with a historical show, tentatively titled Jai Somnath-Ek Prem Kahani, which will be produced by Indra Media.

We also noted about the major cast who will be part of the venture which includes Sadashiv Amrapurkar, Yash Tonk, Amrita Raichand, Avinash Wadhawan, Pankaj Dheer, Siddharth Vasudev, Gajendra Chauhan, Sonika Handa, Sadhika Randhwa and Sashi Sharma.

The promos are already on air with title not shown and the latest we hear is that the show has got its final name as Shobha Somnath Kii.

A source says, "Having a huge cast, the shoot is time consuming and hence the production has decided to shoot in parts so that there is enough bank of episodes. Therefore there is still time for its launch."

We tried contacting Sukesh Motwani, Fiction Head- Zee TV, for a confirmation, but all our efforts were in vain…

After Ek Veer Stree ki Kahaani Jhansi Ki Rani, Shobha Somnath Kii will be the next historical on the channel.
