"It's a four-month track and Manoj will play a positive character. Several actors were considered for the part, but Manoj has a long association with the production house and hence, he has been finalised for the role. Not to forget, he fits the bill perfectly," TOI quoted a source close to the show confirming the news.
Last seen in Saath Nibhaana Saathiya of Star Plus and Aahat of Sony, the handsome actor will be playing the role of a doctor on the show. He will be paired opposite Anita, who had been playing the antagonist on the show and now has got positive enlightenment.
Vivek Dahiya was the last entry into the show, who is currently playing ACP Abhishekh Singh. Amit Tandon entered the show before him, who played Dr. Subramanium Chandran.
Yeh Hai Mohabbatein's Shagun is a changed person and is no longer the villain of the show. She has received a chance to come back to Delhi on work and this is when she will meet the new character played by Manoj.
