Punar Vivaah will unfold a new chapter with fresh star cast under a new title Punar Vivah... Ek Nayi Umeed. But one thing that will be constant is the issue of remarriage.
With the story of protagonists Yash (Gurmeet Choudhary) and Aarti (Kritika Sengar) and their remarriage coming to an end, the new story will see Rubina Dilaik, Karan V Grover and Srishty Rode in the lead roles.
The new story is about a popular TV actress Divya (Rubina), who puts aside her love life in her quest to build a career. Karan will play Raj, a disillusioned young man, who ends up marrying Sarita, played by Srishty, chosen by his family, after losing his first love.
Karan, who has seen Punar Vivah in his family, said, "I will try to give the best and make the character relatable. I was happily surprised to get the opportunity, I like experimenting, so I accepted it." Seen in serials like Yahaan Main Ghar Ghar Kheli, Karan is currently part of the comedy show Hum Hain Aapke In Laws that comes on SAB TV. Rubina, who played the lead in Choti Bahu, said that Punar Vivah is a second chance to live life and every individual has a right to get that second chance.
Talking about the show, she added, "Great responsibility on us to live up to the expectations of the audience. The show will project the real life love story of an actress, which I guess everyone wants to know about."
The new chapter will also see Srishty, last seen on the small screen as the grown up Shobha in Shobha Somnath Ki. "I am looking forward to play Sarita as it would show a different side of me as an actress... Sarita is not a typical kind of bahu. She is very strong-minded."
The new chapter of Punar Vivah... Ek Nayi Umeed will start May 20 on Zee TV.
