Says our source, "Many had auditioned but Jay Soni fit the bill perfectly. He was the only one who could do justice to the character. So he has been chosen as the male lead paired opposite Ragini Khanna."
Adds the source, "Other veteran actors in the show are Supriya Pilgaonkar, Mahesh Thakur and Shruti Ulfat. Pooja Kanwal (Pavni of Sony's Palampur Express) too returns to the telly scene after her break which she took for her wedding."
We called Jay Soni, but he refused to make any comments.
Ravi Ojha is the man behind Bengali soap Ogo Bondhu Sundori,which is the highest TRP earning show, till date on Star Jalsa. Apparently, Sasural Genda Phool is the Hindi adaptation of it and the expectations are high from this show.
Ragini Khanna says, "I'm happy to be playing the lead role in the show."
Pooja Kanwal Mahtani says, "When Sony had its major revamp, I and Ragini were amongst the main faces of the revamp. This time too we both are getting together on the same channel and more interestingly on the same show!"
The promos for the show will be shot very soon and the launch date is expected to be on 22nd of February.
