Former 80s Actress Jaya Prada Moves to Television
The actress will be playing the protagonist’s mother
Veteran Bollywood actress, Jaya Prada who ruled the marquee in the 80s and was considered to be close competition to Sridevi, will be making her debut on television in &TV’s upcoming series Perfect Pati.
Jaya Prada will be seen playing the protagonist’s mother, Ramila Rathod. Talking about her stint on the show, she told Times Of India, “Like all firsts, I’m sure it’s going to be formidable, yet a special experience. The medium of television is immensely powerful and it’s refreshing to know that such evolved and strong characters, and women-oriented stories are being written on this medium. Pramila will uniquely challenge and at the same time beautifully present the relationship of a mother with her son and daughter-in-law.”
She says, “It’s sad to see that the mother-in-law on Indian television is either the vamp or gets confined to the kitchen. The primary reason for taking up this character is the qualities and attributes Pramila possesses. I truly wish more such characters are written for mainstream TV shows, given the fact that they enjoy immense reach and can influence the society positively.”
The first look of her TV is also quite interesting.
