'Iss Pyar Ko Kya Naam Doon' actress Dalljiet Kaur's second innings on telly has been making heads turn every now and then. Last seen as Manjari on Zee TV’s 'Kaala Teeka', the actress stunned all with her drastic weight loss and glamorous makeover. Now she will also be seen in the most powerful female character ever.

Dalljiet Kaur has bagged a special Navrati series on Big Magic titled 'Maa Shakti'. It is a show with 28 episodes and will start airing from September 21. Dressed in the character, Dalljiet shared her picture on Instagram with a caption, "Power of a woman is personified in my new project... #somethingnew #womanpower" Excited about her new role, Miss Kaur even spoke to Bollywood Life and said, “This is my first mythological and I am very excited. We are shooting in Gujarat. I have got my son Jaydon here with me. He is missing school, I am taking a risk but this role is very special for me. This is a character for my soul. I am so happy to see the interest in the news. The response by fans has been very good.” She is taking three hours to get decked for the character of Maa Durga and is enjoying every bit of it. "


Cashing on the festivities of Navratri, the show captures the entire journey of Maa Durga right from the time she was created by the Gods to the death of Mahishahasura. Getting into the skin of her character, Dalljiet says it's important to tell the story of Maa Durga. The actress said,  “I am a non-vegtarian but I have decided to abstain from non-veg till I am doing this show. The writing is excellent. Every dialogue gives me the goose-bumps. There is so much in the character of Shakti/Durga, that it is great for an artiste. I have been reading on the various myths and tales surrounding her. Young people love Dandiya and Garba but they should know what is the tale behind the existence of Durga. As a woman, it is about having the fighting spirit and lot more. She is a mother, she is a destroyer. When a mother turns destroyer, God save the world.”
