|The lead actress of Punar Vivah, Rubina Dilaik aka Divya (Raj’s ladylove), has quit the show, but that doesn’t mean the producers are not going to cash in on the track of Sarita’s re-marrigae. As Raj (Karan Grover) is trying to find a perfect guy for his wife Sarita (Srishty Rode) to settle down so that he can marry Divya, actor Eijaz Khan is expected to enter the show as a suitor of Sarita.
Actor Eijaz Khan, who is currently playing a quiz master in Diya Aur Baati Hum, seem to have struck the right chord with the producers Shashi and Sumeet Mittal, also the producers of Punar Vivah.
It’s learnt that the makers have approached the handsome actor to play a crucial role in Punar Vivah -- Ek Nayi Umeed. He will be seen opposite Srishty Rode aka Sarita. Till now several guys have been introduced in the show as Sarita’s suitors, but every time the track changes.
Apparently, a lot of actors, including Angad Hasija, were approached for the role opposite Srishty, but Eijaz turned out to be the perfect choice.
It's said that Eijaz will be shown as a widower with a kid who is in search for a new mother for his child.
“Though things are yet to be confirmed, Eijaz seems to be the strongest contender for the role as of now. It’s an important role and we hope things get finalised soon. The actor will be required to commence the shoot immediately...,” a source tells a daily.
Currently, the show is thriving on Raj-Sarita’s friendship, and the brewing romance between the two. But with the entry of Eijaz Khan, matters of heart may change drastically. Meanwhile, we do wish Divya is back in the telly serial.
