Popular actor Shakti Arora is set to return to the small screen by playing the new lead in ZEE TV’s show ‘Kundali Bhagya, just days after it was announced that Dheeraj Dhoopar has called it quits.
Talking to TellyBuzz, Arora said, “I feel incredibly blessed to be a part of such a popular show on TV, a show that the public adores and appreciates so much. I have worked with Zee TV in the past as well, so it is like a homecoming for me. Having been away from TV for nearly 3 years, I am really eager to get started. I hope I can live up to the expectations and responsibilities that come with stepping into a show as popular as Kundali Bhagya. My character, Arjun, has some grey shades and he is someone who wants to create trouble for Preeta and the Luthras. Having said that, I feel he has a lot of layers that the viewers will understand as the story progresses, and I am sure the role will be a great challenge for me. It is the kind of role that I have not played till now, and I hope that my fans will enjoy watching me in this new avatar and character.”
Meanwhile, Dhoopar will be leaving the show after five years of playing Karan Luthra. He will soon be embracing fatherhood and is also expected to work on an upcoming Punjabi film.
