Good news for all fans of Arjun Bijlani out there! The 'Naagin'
actor has been roped in for Ekta Kapoor's next opposite Drashti
Dhami! The role which was initially offered to Shaleen
Malhotra, has finally landed in Arjun's lap. Well, we are very sure
that the actor will be on the seventh heaven now.
The show is loosely based on the Bollywood movie 'Pardes' and
Arjun will reprise Shahrukh Khan's role from the original. The show
has created a lot of buzz since its inception. Arjun and Drashti
are paired opposite each other for the first time.
The actor, who was one of the celebrity contestants in the dance
reality show, Jhalak Dikkhla Jaa 9 recently got eliminated from the
show. The actor opened up about his experience of being a part of
Jhalak Dikkhla Jaa to a leading entertainment portal and descried
it as the journey of lifetime!
He told, "I just wrapped up Jhalak and will be shooting for 2-3
days for Kavach...Kali Shaktiyon Se. Post that, I leave for
outdoors for the shoot of Pardes Mein Hai Mera Dil. It is a great
project but kind of hectic."
The cast and crew will soon leave for Austria to shoot some of
the initial portions. It has to be recalled that Arjun has been a
part of successful shows Meri Aashiqui Tumse Hi and Naagin under
the same banner, for which he won a lot of accolades.
Will the actor be third time lucky? We can only hope that they
recreate the same magic in this show as well. What say, guys?
