Jaya Bachchan's Sony TV project titled Vasundhara
News flashed in the media last week pertaining to Jaya Bachchan making her television debut. As per reports, she will be co producing a show for Sony Entertainment Television in a joint venture with Endemol India.
As we all know, Jaya’s husband Amitabh Bachchan is also a part of another upcoming show (fiction) on the same channel helmed by maverick producer-director Anurag Kashyap.
Latest we have learnt is that the Jaya Bachchan show has been christened Vasundhara and Jaya will be seen playing the role of the head of the family.
The appearance of big names in fiction format was heralded by Anil Kapoor with him producing and acting in the ongoing show 24 on Colors. But this big ticket espionage thriller show has not really rocked the TVT charts.
Let’s hope the Bachchan shows on Sony deliver big numbers for they will obviously be high costing projects.
May be Vasundhara can be the game changer, as on the face it seems to be more on what desi TV audiences like. This coupled with Mrs. Bachchan’s experience and presence may set the ratings on fire. She had earlier produced shows like Dekh Bhai Dekh under the umbrella of Saraswati Audio Visuals.
We sent a message to Sony TV Business Head and EVP Sneha Rajani for a confirmation quote but she chose not to revert.
