Simple Kaul

Back in 2004, Harsh Vashisht as Raja and Simple Kaul as Pam were quite a popular couple on Star Plus' fantasy sitcom Shararat. The duo have once again come together for a kids based show. Adapted from the English series, Jessie, the Indian version Oye Jassie sees the two playing a star couple. "We hail from a film background. While Harsh is a renowned film director, I am an ex-model, who has taken to being a fashion designer and a socialite after marriage," reveals Kaul.

Interestingly, Kaul will be seen playing the role of a mother for the first time. She says, "Actors usually hesitate to play older roles on TV, but here my character was such that I could not resist taking it up! Our inspiration for this role were Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, who too as a star couple take care of a bunch of kids. I play a parent to four kids in this serial."

Actress, Tara Sutaria (last seen on Disney's The Suite Life of Karan & Kabir) will now be seen as Jassie, who has been hired as a nanny to take care of the kids.

Vashisht, who was recently seen on Star Plus' Veera is also part of the show. "I am happy that Oye Jassie brought me back to comedy, which I was really looking forward to," he says. Apart from acting, he has directed the pilot episode of the show, that was telecast on October 13. Besides, he is busy penning a film script on sports drama, which he hopes will be backed by a good producer.
