Ratna Pathak Shah, who has played several challenging characters effortlessly in her career spanning three decades, has a rather arduous task ahead. She will be stepping into her mother’s (Dina Pathak) shoes to play her role in the third edition of JD Majethia and Aatish Kapadia’s ‘Khichdi’. Senior actress Dina Pathak played Anang Desai aka Babuji’s mother Badi Maa in the first season.

Now, Ratna will take on the mantle of playing the part. Not just that, the show will also mark the reunion of Ratna and her sister Supriya on screen after 20 years. They were last seen together on ‘Idhar Udhar’.


While Ratna remained unavailable for comment, JD told us, “Dinaji was an effortless actor and she played her characters with such conviction that they remained etched in viewers’ minds for a long time. Who better than her own daughter to play the part. Since Supriyaji is already playing a key character on the show, we brought Ratnaji on board as Badi Maa. She is a superlative actress and will do justice to the part.”
