MUMBAI : The cat is finally out of the bag. Karan Singh Grover has been roped in to play Rishabh Bajaj in the reboot of Kasautii Zindagii Kay. Interestingly, Karan was also part of the original series, where he played Anurag and Prerna’s (Cezanne Khan and Shweta Tiwari) son-in-law. “Karan will soon start shooting for his entry in Kasautii Zindagii Kay. The makers were juggling with multiple options but decided to go with him. He will play a suave and charming businessman. His entry will definitely spice up the chemistry between Parth Samthaan and Erica Fernandes’ Anurag and Prerna. As of now, Karan is glad to be back on television and on a show which made him a household name.”
Apart from Parth Samthaan and Erica Fernandes, the show also stars Hina Khanas Komolika. The actor recently wrapped up her shoot to fly off to Cannes, where she would be releasing the first look of her upcoming film Lines.
Ronit Roy played the original Mr Bajaj in Kasautii Zindagii Kay. The salt and pepper look, inspired by Richard Gere, and his baritone made him an irresistible character on TV. Producer Ekta Kapoor had recently bid Ronit’s Bajaj a farewell via an Instagram post. Announcing her hunt for the new Rishabh Bajaj, she had shared, “the time has come !
