You loved her as the modern, urban woman of the 90’s ‘Tara’ and now she is back on Zee TV as the mother of the hero in the channel’s popular primetime drama, Hitler Didi. Actress Navneet Nishan will soon enter the show as a hilarious, upmarket North-Indian lady, mother to the male lead Rishi (played by actor Sumit Vats). Making a rather dramatic entry in a chaotic accident scene, Navneet’s character will be seen at loggerheads with her to-be daughter-in-law Indira (played by Rati Pandey) right from the outset.
Indira who is a mere bystander at the scene where Navneet’s character rams her car into a two-wheeler, will involve herself in the heated quarrel following the accident. Though she has no apparent connection with the bike-rider, righteous and feisty Indira will get involved and vehemently side with him, pointing out that it was entirely Navneet’s fault. Much to her exasperation, Indira will drag her future ma-in-law to a closeby hospital to ensure that she doesn’t just wash her hands off the incident and rightfully pays for the hurt bike-rider’s medical bills. Will this fiery squabble spark off an atmosphere of hostility for Indira even before she steps into her sasuraal? Only time will tell!
Speaking of her new assignment, Navneet Nishan said, “I go back a long way with Zee. I started my career with the channel and even today people recognize me as Tara. In that sense, I will always be indebted to the channel. Just a few months ago, I performed at their annual awards show, Zee Rishtey Awards. I am excited at the prospect of playing a fun, loud, upmarket Punjabi lady who is bound to tickle the audience’s funny bone. Let’s hope the audience enjoys my performance just as much as I enjoy playing the part!”
