Gurdeep Kohli Punj, still remembered for her role as Dr. Juhi Singh in Star Plus show Sanjeevani is back to fiction after a long hiatus. She will be seen playing a negative lead, Maya in Diya Aur Baati Hum. Gurdeep is currently seen hosting a show on Zee Khana Khazana channel.
Maya, a master of disguise enters the show as RK’s (Gaurav Sharma) accomplice, helping him to plan Operation Grehan. With RK under Sandhya’s (Deepika Singh) close watch, it is Maya who will be seen carrying out operations involving arms smuggling, money laundering, on ground support and even the sleeper cells. She will be seen as the biggest support system for RK.
Gurdeep says, “I am really excited about playing Maya in Diya Aur Baati Hum. Maya is a negative character and it is a tremendous challenge for me since I have never played a part like this before. My audiences have known me for all the good characters I have played on screen and I decided to take up this offer as a challenge.”
Now with RK’s army getting stronger, will Sandhya be able to save the nation from operation Grehan?
