Bhubaneswar: Viewers of Odia television series are getting a royal taste of drama with Tarang TV’s latest venture ‘Nua Bohu’. With its grand sets and a plot based on a royal household, the serial is already grabbing eyeballs.
‘Nua Bohu’ boasts a seasoned cast with actress Nitu and Kaykay seen in major roles. The duo is playing the parents to the male lead Jagjit. Kaykay is playing a zamindar, Raj Rajendra Baliar Singh. While Jagjit is known for his romantic and light roles in television serials earlier, this time he is seen as an angry young man.
“I’m playing a zamindar’s son and have a very grave and serious character. It is a great experience to be working alongside senior actors like Nitu apa and Kaykay,” said Jagjit.
Nitu, well known as ‘Gayatri’ from her popular serial is playing a negative character for the first time. “I’m playing Padmaja, the wife of the zamindar and I love the royal look and grand set as well as my challenging role in the serial,” she said.
The mega serial is a family drama but with oodles of thriller effect. Revealing a bit about the plot, Jagjit said due to a misunderstanding, his character is married twice as he is under the notion that his first wife betrays him.
“The serial is a female oriented plot and our script writers Sonali and Rishi have done a great job. There are two female leads and there is a mystery on who will be the ‘Nua Bohu’ or new bride of the royal family,” explained director Mihir Swain.
