As a part of the content extravaganza that Zee TV plans to offer its viewers in the festive month of October, the channel presents a heart-warming story that captures the essence of the ever-evolving dynamics of the saas-bahu relationship in Bharatiya society. A relationship, often portrayed as typically adversarial, political and manipulative especially on Bharatiya television, will now make way for an equation that is based on trust, hope, a friendship that has the two going out on a limb for each other in Zee TV's new show ‘Hamariwali
Good News’. In fact, the show presents a most unique role reversal between the daughter-in-law Navya and her mother-in-law Renuka to give their family the much awaited ‘Good News’.
Set in Agra, the show features the Tiwari parivaar who like most families, are grappling with the quest for the quintessential 'Good News' of a tiny tot who'll fill up their lives with joy. Only this time around, it is the Saas who rather than pressurising or berating her bahu for not being able to conceive, will go the extra mile, brush aside considerations such as age and 'Log Kya Kahenge' by conceiving a baby with her husband to bring the 'Good News' that they collectively await. After all, who better than your own family to back you up when your chips are down and there seems to be no hope! The journey of this unique Saas-Bahu relationship and the manner in which it beautifully deepens in the face of this role reversal forms the crux of Hamariwali Good News.
The show will feature versatile television actress Srishti Jain as Navya Tiwari, a confident and young 23-year-old married girl who teaches kindergarten kids. While she wishes to have children of her own, Navya does not want to rush into this next phase of her life as she understands that raising kids comes with incredible responsibility and wishes to do so when the time is right. Popular TV actress Juhi Parmar slips into the shoes of Renuka, the mother in law who is the lifeline of the Tiwari family and manages the house the way only she can! She is a strong-headed and God-fearing person who is also an active member of a ‘Kirtan Mandli’ consisting of the neighbourhood women.
Popular television actor Shakti Anand too will be a part of the show essaying the pivotal character of Mukund, who is Renuka’s husband and Navya’s father-in-law. A grocery shop owner, known for being a miser, follows the motto of, 'Jaisa chal raha hai badiya hai, what is the need for change?’ And though he enjoys spending time with his friends and discussing politics and
cricket, his relationship with his wife, Renuka and son, Aditya is strained. However, he changes a bit and bonds well with Navya, even more than his own children, as he feels that she understands him like no one else.
Talking about the fresh concept, Srishti Jain who plays the role of Navya in Hamariwali Good News shared, “The show has an extremely unique concept which redefines the age-old, traditional Saas-Bahu dynamic. I am looking forward to playing the character of Navya and am ecstatic about this project. To be honest, slice of life stories are my favourite kind as I feel they
provide a certain relatability factor for the viewers and I am really looking forward to Hamariwali Good News and I hope the audience likes our show.”
Furthermore, Juhi Parmar who plays the role of Renuka in Hamariwali Good News mentioned, “I am always up for challenges and when Renuka's role was offered to me, I felt that this would be very different. The makers have given the Saas-Bahu relationship a dynamic twist and redefined the equation. The story line is very unique and for a woman to have a child for her
own son and daughter in law is so different. Renuka has various shades making her a very interesting woman and one who is relatable and yet so different. I love that she's so vocal, funny at times and yet so caring and can truly go to any extent for her family.”
Shakti Anand who plays the role of Mukund in Hamariwali Good News also added, "The show delves deep into eradicating a social taboo and redefining the Saas-Bahu narrative which is such a fresh concept for Bharatiya television. This slice-of-life drama is a breath of fresh air in the truest sense and I feel truly blessed that I got to be a part of Hamariwali Good News. I am
looking forward to playing the character of Mukund. It is quite different from any role I've played and I’m really thrilled for this fresh challenge."
