On this auspicious occasion the decision to reignite the magic of the plot with more relevant script and screen play was taken by Shemaroo and IMEN.

IMEN, who has an expertise in action films will adapt the screenplay to make it a fun-action pact movie.
Hiren Gada, CEO, Shemaroo Entertainment, said, "We have been the pioneers in innovating newer methods to entertaining India. It is imperative to keep evolving with the trends of the industry. Our first move in reintroducing old content to the contemporary audience is our partnership with IMEN for Jamai Raja. They have a proven expertise and the right acumen to develop enjoyable content and reinvent the classic on such a large scale."
Nilesh Sahay, CEO, IMEN said, “The majority of content consumed internationally is the action genre. It is our duty to produce the best action content for people to enjoy as a company that specialises in that genre. Shemaroo has long been associated with family entertainment, so I'm thrilled to collaborate with them to deliver 'Jamai Raja,' a large-scale action entertainer that will make people laugh hysterically and cry a little bit, in theatres. The movie will be produced in a big way, and I am sure the viewers will love it."
