Popular Star Plus show Yehh Jadu Hai Jinn Ka is all set to embark on an extension. This Vikram Singh Chauhan and Aditi Sharma fantasy saga were initially pencilled for 100 episodes, but the very huge TRP prompted the channel to give it an extension.
There is always a fear that once any show gets extended, the story goes for a toss as writers need to start again and also have to give new edges to the characters, which some times go awry.
However, no such thing will happen to Yehh Jadu Hai Jinn Ka for the writers have aced the new plot.
A source said, “Yes, we dropped a bit on the rating, but now we have a solid broad story. The story is moving into a fascinating phase in the coming weeks, where the love story will see a new twist.”
“The number is again climbing,” added the source.
Producer Gul Khan is the past master of the fantasy genre. Her other finite show Nazar too first started with 100 episodes, but went on for 300 more. Finally, the story is moving to season 2 with a new cast.
“The fact that Nazar lasted so long at 1 1 pm slot means that the storyboard is working. We will follow the same template here as well. And this extension is shorter; we can keep up the hastened pace,” ended our informed source.
Garima Vikrant Singh, who plays Roshni’s (Aditi) foster mother Salma is very happy with the fresh lease of life, “We all had worked very hard, and the extension is the vindication of the same.”
She, however, refused to disclose future plots saying, “Gul mam alone knows the future holds. We are as eager to find out what next as you are.”
Our attempt to reach Gul, Vikram and Star head came to nought.
