New Delhi: TV star Ravi Dubey, who is making a comeback to fiction after two years with new show 'Jamai Raja', says he is a hands-on son-in-law and husband in real life too.

The 30-year-old actor tied the knot with his '12/24 Karol Bagh' co-star Sargun Mehta last December.

"I was doing reality shows in these two years but decided to make a comeback with 'Jamai Raja' as I liked the concept. I relate to the subject well. I am a responsible son-in-law in real life too and at the same time meticulous when it comes to relationships," Ravi told PTI in an interview.

'Jamai Raja', a Zee TV show, which will go on air from August 4, revolves around the life of a son-in-law (Ravi) and his constant efforts to repair the estranges relationship between his wife (Nia Sharma) and mother-in-law (Achint Kaur).

The show is being produced by Ashwini Yardi along with Akshay Kumar under the banner Grazing Goats Pictures. Ravi, who was also accompanied by his real life

father-in-law and mother-in-law to promote the show here, hopes the show will give male actors more limelight in the women-dominated world of small screen.

"As hosts we are trying to serve something different to the people. We have been seeing shows from female perspective but this show will give a male perspective on a relationship.

"Our production team did a massive research before starting the show and we got some feedbacks that people want to watch a show through a male perspective despite of the fact that such shows are mostly watched by women," he said.

Ravi hopes that the notions attached to a son-in-law who lives with his wife's parents will also change with this show.

"I personally disagree to the pre-conceived notions that a son-in-law should be given special attention by the bride's family members. The show will also eradicate such stigmas in the society because here he is the king of hearts. People tend to forget the responsibilities of a 'jamai' but take the word 'raja' too seriously," he added.

An engineering graduate, Ravi started his career in TV with a small role in 'Doli Saja Ke' but got prominence through his second show 'Yahan Ke Hum Sikandar' followed by 'Ranbir Rano', '12/24 Karol Bagh' and 'Saas Bina Sasural'. But he later shifted to reality shows as he was not getting interesting offers in fiction.

Asked if he is open to participate in a show like 'Bigg Boss', Ravi said, "Not at all. I am a private person and I feel there are few things about you which should always remain with you."
