A relationship often portrayed as typically adversarial, political and manipulative, especially on Indian television, will now make way for a more saheli-like equation between a saas (mother-in-law) and bahu (daughter-in-law) in Zee TV's new show ‘Hamariwali Good News’.

In fact, the show presents a most unique role reversal between the daughter-in-law Navya (played by Srishti Jain) and her mother-in-law Renuka (played by Juhi Parmar) to give their family the much-awaited ‘Good News’.

Leaving typical considerations like Log kya kahenge aside, Juhi's character Renuka will be seen conceiving a child with her husband Mukund when her son and daughter-in-law are unable to conceive.

With the show being so fresh and progressive in terms of its concept and a swap of traditional roles between the saas and bahu as its core premise, Zee TV decided it was time for saas bahus across the country to bond over a social media challenge.

A few television celebrities such as Divyanka Tripathi Dahiya, Deepika Singh Goyal and Teejay Sidhu came together with their mothers-in-law to give the new saas-bahu jodi of television — Juhi Parmar and Srishti Jain — a unique welcome.

Building on the show's foundation of #SaasBahuSaheli, the popular stars and their mothers-in-law did a unique role reversal of their own for Hamariwali Good News' #SaasBahuSwap challenge. This role reversal challenge is a fun celebration of the saas bahu relationship evolving in Indian society over the years and how the duo can let their hair down and have a little fun together out of love and acceptance of one another, just like Renuka and Navya are accepting their unique role-reversal with open arms in Hamariwali Good News.

Prior to the challenge, Divyanka Tripathi Dahiya spoke about how she has been extremely lucky and blessed when it comes to her mother-in-law who has treated her with love and utmost care. She said how her saas taught her everything from scratch, about how to take care of the family and the house without ever complaining about all the mistakes Divyanka would make while she was at it, but only came up with solutions to fix troubled situations at hand, similar to how Renuka comes up with the best solution for Navya's problems. Deepika Singh Goyal and Teejay Sidhu spoke about how their married lives would be incomplete without their mothers-in-law being there and all three of them engaged in a really fun swap activity.

For the challenge, Divyanka Tripathi Dahiya and her mother-in-law swapped their style of reading news. While her mother-in-law scrolled through the top headlines on her phone, Divyanka read the newspaper like how her saas does on a regular basis. On the other hand, Deepika and her saas exchanged the cleaning tools that they typically use to clean the house for a day and got into each other's groove. Meanwhile, Teejay and her mother-in-law swapped their diets for the day where Teejay consumed the delicious parathas with makhan and achaar, while her mother-in-law went all out to embrace Teejay’s healthy lifestyle and diet conscious food for a day.
