Earlier there were reports of Shantanu Maheshwari being roped in for the role. But Indianexpress.com quoted a source close to the show, who confirmed the news and said, “Rohit fits the bill of a young boy, who looks like he has returned from abroad and yet has a royal regal persona. Both the leads will have a very grand look, while Tejasswi will don traditional attires , Rohit’s character will have a modern chic avatar.”
Post leap, the story will revolve around the young Ratan Singh, who returns after completing his studies in a foreign university. It will be interesting to see how Ratan’s child-marriage will affect his and Diya’s lives post leap. Tejasswi’s character will be shown more matured and she will now play the role of a 30 year-old-woman.
Tejasswi had recently shot for the first promo of the show and confirmed about the same. She said, “Yes, I have shot for the promo. But right now I honestly don’t have any idea as to what will be the story of the new show. All I know is that the new story will be very different from the previous one. The new daily soap will have nothing to do with the previous show. It won’t be a sequel or part two.”
Pehredaar Piya Ki, which had Tejasswi and Afaan Khan in the lead, received lot of backlash for the story line wherein a nine-year-old boy Ratan (Afaan Khan), gets married to a 18-year-old Diya (Tejasswi Prakash). The show was recently shutdown after the pressure created by I&B Minister Smriti Zubin Irani.
