Ekta Kapoor's Kasautii Zindagii Kay reboot has been topping the charts ever since it has premiered on Star Plus. The show recently had bid farewell to one of its most popular characters, Komolika played by Hina Khan who made much noise with her Cannes debut appearance. To keep the show running on the top, the makers are now introducing its viewers to the iconic character of Mr Bajaj.
The hunt for the character is on and if early reports are to be believed, Karan Singh Grover has bagged the role leaving Eijaz Khan, Hiten Tejwani, Karan Patel behind in the race, who too were contenders for the highly popular role of Business tycoon originally played by Ronit Roy.
Ronit Roy was recently quizzed about the development by Spotboye and he said "I’m very happy for Karan bagging the role of Bajaj. I think he’ll do a great job. My good wishes are with him. May he and kzk2 attain much greater heights of popularity than I did,"
Ronit feels Karan is an experienced actor and he didn't need any tips from him. "He’s a seasoned actor and doesn’t need my advice. All I can say is, be cool," the actor said.
Revisiting his days of being Mr Rishav Bajaj he said it was one of his most career-defining roles and people still recognise him as Mr Bajaj and it is one of his most memorable characters till date. "People still do call me that. It goes without saying that it was one of my iconic and career-defining roles," Ronit added.
Ekta Kapoor a few days back announced the return of the iconic character. "The time has come! To say bye to @ronitboseroy as d iconic Mr Bajaj! N d search for d new one@begins! I have cast (n not casted’ As someone told me) Ronit in many roles but this remains our most iconic one together @iam_ejf @the_parthsamthaan @realhinakhan @poojabanerjeee @subhavi all have been perfect as anurag Prerna komo Nivi .. willl bajaj match up( hmmmm)"
Meanwhile, things are turning intense between Anurag Basu, Prerna Sharma and Komolika Dubey. Komolika is trying all her evil means to get rid of Prerna and according to reports, the series will show the last of her this month after which Mr. Bajaj will step into Anurag and Prerna' life.
