Surbhi Chandna and Namit Khanna's Sanjivani is currently one of the most anticipated shows. The show will be a sequel to the original show which aired between 2002 to 2005 on Star Plus. The show starred Gurdip Kohli, Mihir Mishra, Sanjeet Bedi, Rupali Ganguly, Mohnish Behl in lead roles. The sequel will see Surbhi, Namit alongside Mohnish, Gurdeep, Sayantani Ghosh and Jason Tham. In an exclusive chat with Jason Tham, we spoke to him about his excitement for the sequel, what is his character like, and his meeting with the cast. 

Chatting with us, Jason revealed that he plays a doctor from North East in the show. "More in that I am a geek, everything is on my fingertips when it comes to having the knowledge of medicine, what surgery should be done when and so on but the thing is I am bad with practical knowledge. I am a bookworm in the show." He also revealed that it was in January that he received a call for an audition and it was only recently that everything got locked. "I was asked to audition in January and it took nearly six months to put everything together. The casting took the longest time because producer Siddharth Malhotra wanted every character to be handpicked well."

Speaking about his meeting with the cast, Jason revealed, "I have met the cast during the look test and also the print shoot. That's the first time I met the cast. Namit and I, we clicked really well. He also has a Delhi connection and I am also from Delhi, so we had a lot of common things to talk about. Surbhi is very sweet, she is very witty and like a child basically. Everyone loves her already."

Jason also shared that the team currently is tensed about how will people react to the show. "There is a lot of baggage and pressure to this sequel to the first season as everybody loved that show and that audience will obviously expect this show to meet the expectations. So, the hype is real, basically. Everyone is so pumped up."

On a parting note, he concluded, "I have full faith in the production house and team. It is all about kicking. There are times when the content is good but it just doesn't click with the audience, I am only a little apprehensive about that. But I am sure you guys will love it."


Surbhi is a real,natural and phenomenal actress. This is what makes everyone to love her more.
