Kundali Bhagya: Shakti Anand to essay Shraddha Arya’s husband
Kundali Bhagya is witnessing some major changes in the cast and story as the show is undergoing a 20-year leap. Earlier there were reports about Amar Upadhyay joining the show, but now it’s confirmed that Shakti Anand will enter the show as Karan Luthra. The character was originally played by Dheeraj Dhoopar who quit the show as he did not want to play a father to grown-up kids. Shakti will now replace Dheeraj to essay the lead role opposite Shraddha Arya.
Shakti confirmed the news in a recent interview and said, “I am proud to enter a show that has lasted for six years given that in recent times, we see shows wrapping up in just a few months. I will essay the role of Karan Luthra and it will be a completely new story with grown-up children in the show. I am sure that the makers will bring in a lot of twists for viewers in the coming months.”
When asked if he had any apprehensions about playing a father to 24 year old, he replied “I am not essaying this old father, who is just sitting and telling children to finish their food (laughs!). I will have many shades to portray, so I have no qualms playing a father.”
Shakti was last seen in the TV show Channa Mereya.
