After years of staying away from the arc lights, Jyoti Mukerji is back on television with Star Bharat and Disney Hot Star show “Tera Mera Saath Rahe” starting from 16th of August at 8:30 pm. In Tera Mera Saath Rahe, which will be aired on Disney Hotstar, she is seen starring along with the earlier Saath Nibhana Saathiyan cast including Rupal Patel, Gia Manek, Nazim Khilji, Vandana Botadkar Vithlani.
While the second part of Saath Nibhana Saathiyan is on air on Star Plus, these actors have been replaced by the younger generation in part two due the leap in the story. Jyoti says, “While Kokilaben, Gopi bahu, Ahem and Gopi’s maami are repeated from Saath Nibhana Saathiyan, Tera Mera Saath Rahe is a completely new show and story by a different production house. All I can say about my role is that it’s a positive and interesting role. It’s a saas-bahu drama.”
Jyoti has marked her acting brilliance in more than 20 television serials, film, telefilm… including Gharana, Kitty Party, Mulk, santaan , Aandhi, Asha ki kiran and Prratima… started her TV journey in 2000 with filmmaker Anurag Basu’s show, Manzilein Apni Apni, as the lead.
Jyoyi said, “It’s a new world. Life has really changed… When I wanted to get back to work, I realised that all the people that I had worked with, are not there in the television industry today. The creative department has come in, and now, it’s the channel’s call… In my time the producers ruled.”
“One thing that has changed because of the pandemic is do your own audition at home and send it to the production house. Like I had to audition for this role and many roles as I was trying to get back to work for quite some time. But I don’t know the production houses and they don’t know me so for them I am like a newcomer, wanting to come back to work,” she further added.
