The magic of Chhoti Bahu will enthrall one and all very soon...

The much-awaited show Chhoti Bahu will be back with a brand new love story of Dev (Avinash Sachdev) and Radhika (Rubina Dilaik) on Zee TV!! While Season 1 depicted the love story of Radhika by keeping Vrindavan as the backdrop, the channel and production house DJ's Creative Unit have done a lot more research this time to come up with a love story with a lot more spiritual touch in it.

Our source states, "This time the backdrop of the show will be Rawal, the place where Radha actually made her presence felt in order to fall into a divine and spiritual love story with Krishn, according to the Indian mythology. The story of the new version of Chhoti Bahu will begin in Rawal and will later move to Mathura".

"This time the divine love story of Dev and Radhika will start when they are kids. The story will start from the childhood version of the duo, and will take a leap later on. The leap is expected to happen after 10 episodes, but all will depend on the way the love story of the kids gets accepted by the audience", adds our source.

Unlike the protagonists of the first season, Dev and Radhika will now be projected as more outspoken and pro-active people. They will not be silent spectators and cannot be overpowered by people. This aspect of the protagonists will bring in some freshness to the story.

"The show will not be counted as the Season 2 of Chhoti Bahu. It will also not have the tag line of 'Sindoor Bina Suhaagan'. It will be a completely fresh story with a new tag line which is being decided as of now. It will probably be on the lines of Chhoti Bahu Ek Nayi Prem Kahaani. Though the initial story in Rawal will have a typical rural backdrop, the story line in Mathura which will be Dev's household will have the needed urban elements in it", elaborates our source.

The casting process is getting finalized as of now, and the show is all set to go on floors by this Sunday. If all goes well, Chhoti Bahu will be launched in the Valentines week in February. Chhoti Bahu will be getting the same time slot of 7.30 PM which created a record of sorts for the channel.

"The Cricket World Cup starts from February 19th, so it will be very essential that we launch Chhoti Bahu before this date", adds our source.

When contacted, Rubina Dilaik told us, "Yes, I guess the show is going on floors from the last week of this month. We are shooting our first outdoor schedule at Mathura".

Well, all we can say is that the countdown to seeing the favorite Jodi of one and all, Dev and Radhika again on screen has begun!!
