With several old shows like Ramayan, Mahabharat, Buniyaad and so many more returning to the small screen, Mona Singh says she hopes Jassi Jaissi Koi Nahin too marks a rerun on the small screen.
Revolving around the life of a plain simple girl who lands with a high profile fashion magazine job, Jassi Jaissi was also Mona Singh and Gaurav Gera’s claim to fame. While the actress says that she is not aware if the show is coming back or not but she sure hopes it does come back.
Speaking to Hindustan Times, Mona says that the show still remains relevant in today’s times. Opening up about the show that received such immense love when it was first aired in 2003, Mona said, “I have not heard any such news, but what I did experience was a lot of people writing to me on social media that I should speak to channel heads and tell them to re-run the show. Even Gaurav Gera (co-star and friend) has been getting such requests, and we were discussing it. It’s the perfect time for it to re-run, and it’s humbling that people still want to watch that show again.”
Further expressing her views on what made the show related back then and even today to viewers, Mona said, “It was the simplicity of the show, and that it stayed true to the characters. It hits you somewhere, you could relate to the character so much. Every show out there just wanted to look pretty and sexy. Every Indian girl could relate to Jassi, how she was rejected all the time, and the story was about believing in yourself.”
Apart from Mona Singh and Gaurav Gera the show also featured Rakshanda Khan, Samir Soni, Apurva Agnihotri and many others in pivotal roles.
