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.

I hope they get to the bottom of the issue and achieve some kind of justice for the kids to live a decent life. Though that is being a lil too optimistic.
