    Actually i thought it’s going to be Surya as Uruvasi son and seems Jo was explaining why he liked him. But we got suprised that Maddy was the Role played Son and he saw damn simple and sweet. I loved Jo’s character in the MM. Now a days who can be so closed to MIL and being friendly like her? Any how many of us as young ladies wish to have such jovial and friendly and open minded MIL OR DIL. Only could be happen if we woman’s have open mindsets with lot’s of loving and caring towards to our own gender.
