Talented
actress

Achint
Kaur

is
looking
forward
to
the
second
season
of
her
Zee5
web
series

Jamai
Raja
2.0
.
The
action-thriller,
starring
Ravi
Dubey
and
Nia
Sharma
along
with
Achint,
starts
streaming
from
February
26,
2021.
Achint
opens
up
to

FilmiBeat

about
playing
Durga
Devi
Patel
in
the
web
series.

“I
have
big
expectations
and
hope
to
pick
up
a
lot
more
positive
responses,
just
like
my
first
outing
manifested
on
social
media.
Everyone
loved
the
layered,
drug
baron
character
of
Durga
Devi.
I
don’t
even
remember
one
critical
post.
I
have
also
fallen
in
love
with
my
costumes,
which,
despite
being
chic,
appeals
to
all
sections
of
society,” says
Achint.

How
will

Jamai
Raja
season
2

pan
out?

“Some
central
plots
that
were
left
open-ended
when
the
premier
season
wrapped
up
will
find
closure.
New
characters
and
plot
will
also
pop
up.
Siddharth
(Ravi
Dubey)
and
Durga
Devi
would
not
dominate
any
more.
In
the
sophomore
(second)
season,
Roshni
(Nia
Sharma),
too,
will
step
up
to
the
plate
doing
stuff
leading
to
the
independent
drama
unfolding.”

“Our
show
has
enough
juice
left
to
go
at
least
a
couple
of
more
seasons,”
adds
Achint
for
good
measure.

Achint
has
been
around
on
the
idiot
box
for
years
now,
starting
with
the
cult

Banegi
Apni
Baat

in
1994.
She
too,
is
smitten
by
the
new
digital
phenomenon
of
the
over
the
top
(OTT)
platform.

“After

Hey
Prabhu

(on
MX
Player),

Jamai
Raja

is
my
second
web
outing.
The
second
season
of

Hey
Prabhu

is
also
in
the
works

we
are
dubbing
for
the
same
as
we
speak.”

“OTT’s
biggest
plus
point
is
that
our
characters
have
more
depth
than
TV,
given
its
global
reach,
where
we
have
set
limitations.
Also,
more
fresh
air
comes
in
when
we
don’t
need
to
go
loud
as
TV,
i.e.
Durga
Devi
says
and
does
what
she
has
to
do
without
making
a
song
and
dance
about
it,”
she
adds.


Any
upcoming
projects
on
OTT?

“The
web
also
has
infinite
possibilities,
and
since
we
are
experimenting,
we
don’t
cross
the
line.
I
am
looking
forward
to
more
web
shows.
At
the
moment,
I
have
not
signed
anything
new,”
she
says.

Talking
about
her
association
with
Ravi
Dubey
and
Nia
Sharma,
Achint
says,
“Over
time
(Jamai
Raja

first
went
on
air
in
2014),
our
trio
has
become
so
close
that
even
if
we
don’t
meet,
our
equation
remains
unaffected.
We
merely
continue
from
where
we
left
off.”


Does
the
web
format
of
having
multiple
seasons
lead
to
stretched
plots?

“As
a
thumb
rule,
the
long
format
has
enough
juice
to
sustain
a
long
run,
but
yes,
some
scenes
might
appear
stretched.
Web
writers
are
very
aware
that
unlike
the
TV
audience,
Gen
Y’s
attention
span
is
limited
(from
a
few
seconds
to
a
couple
of
minutes),
so
they
can’t
afford
to
meander
around.”

Achint
views
the
recent
lockdown
in
a
positive
light,
saying,
“The
stay-at-home
order
gave
me
lots
of
me-time,
enabling
lots
of
positive
self-revelations.
We
usually
are
so
busy
running
around
that
we
don’t
have
a
moment
to
reflect.”

We
agree.
