Ekta Kapoor Welcomes Karan Singh Grover to ‘Kasautii Zindagii Kay’
Actor and model Karan Singh Grover is set to replace Ronit Roy as the iconic Rishabh Bajaj in Ekta Kapoor’s popular soap Kasautii Zindagii Kay. Ekta took to social media to welcome him into the fold writing, “Hello Rishab!! Your hardhearted as steel and sexy old wine... An acquired taste like single malt... You carry your calculated casualness with a panther like walk!! Mr Bajaj is back!!! Prerna now is going to be torn between Anu’s boyish yet deep intensity and Bajaj‘s age old charm !!!
The actor can be sporting a look similar to Ronit Roy’s with salt and pepper hair and a black turtleneck.
Karan previously appeared on the show as the love interest of Mr Bajaj’s daughter’s Sneha who is played by Jennifer Winget. Karan and Jennifer were married for two years in real life as well. In an interview with SpotboyE, Karan recalled a scene in which he had to ask Mr Bajaj’s permission to marry his daughter. He said that he fumbled so much that they had to film several retakes but Ronit waited them out unruffled. "Ronit stood patiently and lied to me that I can take it easy and not hurry but the fact was that he had to reach somewhere and was getting terribly late!” he said.
Karan’s wife actor Bipasha Basu seems to be quite smitten by his new look. Congratulating him on the role, she wrote on Instagram: “Always knew the hubby is hot but this salt and pepper hair is something else... very few can rock this look... but he so can! Enjoy the new ride love! Durga Durga.”
