Marathi entertainment channel Star Pravah announced the launch of “Jeevalaga”, a new daily show, slated to begin airing 8th Apr 2019 onwards. This show marks the return to television of both Swwapnil Joshi and Siddharth Chandekar after a gap of over seven years and the debut of Amruta Khanvilkar in a Marathi fiction show. The show also features Madhura Deshpande, who has essayed memorable roles on both television and in movies.
Ravikant Sabnavis – Executive Vice-President & General Manager, Star Pravah says, ‘Jeevalaga’ is an engaging love story exploring the relationships between married couples, with each of the characters challenged to stand for what they believe is right.
“Jeevalaga highlights the power of love and shows how one can handle relationships with maturity” says Satish Rajwade, Programming Head at Star Pravah.
Swwapnil Joshi said, “I am absolutely delighted to be back to television, a medium that has truly enriched me as a professional, and I am excited to be working with the team at Star Pravah once again. In “Jeevalaga”, I play the role of a writer Vishwas, who is a mature and understanding husband.
Amruta Khanvilkar observes that the grandeur of the serial is nothing less than that of a film owing to its star cast and the production values. “I have not previously done television and I am really looking forward to be a part of this grand show. I am most excited by the character of Kavya that I play in the show. She is a dashing entrepreneur and has a loving partner Vishwas. The relationship between Kavya and Vishwas is not the one we experience in our daily life. I am sure that the audience will love the characters as much as we are while portraying them on screen”
“This is truly a home coming for me. I am acting in a TV serial after a gap of nine years. My first show Agnihotra was aired on Star Pravah and directed by Satish Rajwade. The story of Jeevalaga is unique hence I loved it the moment I heard it. I am playing the challenging character of Nikhil who is an introvert and believes in keeping his problems to himself,” said Siddharth Chandekar.
Madhura Deshpande said, “I was excited after I heard the story for the first time, and there was no way I could miss this opportunity. The role of Vidhi that I am playing is a happy go lucky, lovable young girl who believes in true love. It’s a character that everybody will love to watch. I will get to learn a lot from actors like Swwapnil Joshi, Amruta Khanvilkar and Siddharth Chandekar and I look forward to working with them”.
