Actor Rajev Paul says his late parents blessings got him a chance to be a part of new TV show "Jiji Maa".
"When I got a call for this show in March 2017 this year, not many know, but I had lost my father Colonel Jogendra Singh Paul on December 26, 2016. So, I was not even in Mumbai for a couple of months. I was in an emotional turmoil as just two years back, we had lost our mother due to cancer," Rajeev said in a statement.
"So, it was not in most trying times when I was certainly not looking for work, neither expected anything nor was I at my best. So, I reluctantly went for the meeting and I was not surprised but shocked when I got this final offer. I guess it's my parents' blessings that got me this role," he added.
"Jiji Maa" also features Tanvi Dogra, Bhavika Sharma and Pallavi Pradhan.

She is currently seen as Imarti Devi (Daadi) in TV show "Nimki Mukhiya".
"'Nimki Mukhiya' is a great show and the role of Imarti Devi comes as a challenge to me. And I love to accept them as they come my way. Having the grasp of the language is a task. Over and about it's an interesting role," she said.
