Jiten Lalwani returns to mythology serial genre as Shani Dev after 3 years with ‘Paramavatar Shri Krishna’


Having enthralled the viewers with his earlier portrayal of the character of Shani Dev, Jiten Lalwani is all set to make a return to mythology TV serials, depicting the same character in a different style and manner in mythological fiction show Paramavatar Shri Krishna.

Sharing his thoughts on making a comeback to the genre and the role, he said, “I have always found a calling for mythological characters. Shani Dev as a character has always built a great intrigue within me. Although I have played the character once, I really don’t mind essaying it again because there is another style and shade to the character which is another discovery in itself. No matter how many tales may be spoken about, there are certain facets and characteristics of Shani Dev that remain unexplored and through Paramavatar Shri Krishna I get to showcase it on-screen. I think it’s this little curiosity and fascination that made me once again venture onto the route of mythology. Relieving a character for the second time after a gap of nearly 3 years is an exciting challenge which I look forward to."

While mythology may have been his comfort zone, Jiten has never been afraid to step out and explore different characters, be it in the comedy space or in the supernatural genre. Commenting on his brief stint in the supernatural space, the actor said, “Considering supernatural was the big trend of television, I really did want to explore this genre too, but eventually found myself finding a disconnect to the genre. I didn’t want to take up shows in that space and hence decided to part ways from it.”

Jiten Lalwani has been part of TV shows including Naagin 3, Papa By Chance, Kasam Tere Pyaar Ki, Sasural Genda Phool and many.
