It is no news that the 'Naagin' actor Arjun Bijlani has been roped in for Ekta Kapoor's next titled 'Pardes Mein Hai Mera Dil'. The meaty role which was initially offered to Shaleen Malhotra, has finally landed in Arjun's lap.
As we had reported earlier, Drashti Dhami will be playing the lead role in the show, which is loosely based on Bollywood movie 'Pardes'. Apparently, she will play the role of 'Naina' in the show. Arjun will reprise Shahrukh Khan's role from the original.
She will dislike the idea of getting married because of her ailing mother. But, the fate will have something else in store for her. Arjun and Drashti will be sharing screen space for the very first time and the fans are really excited about the same.
The show is in news for quite sometime now, all thanks to the fresh new pairing. Hope Arjun and Drashti create magic on-screen with their chemistry. Well, the good news is that the actor has already begun shooting for the show!
An excited Arjun confirmed the same through a tweet. He wrote, "Wish me luck new beginning today.first day of shoot.#PardesMeinHaiMeraDil."
His 'Naagin' co-star and good friend was very quick to respond to his tweet. She wished him good luck for his new venture. She wrote, "@Thearjunbijlani, allllll the very best ex costar."
Meanwhile, Arjun who recently got eliminated from Jhalak Dikkhla Jaa is expected to leave to Austria along with the other cast members soon for shooting some of the portions.
We just can't wait for the show to begin! What say, guys?
