The actor says he has not been approached for the show
One of Star Plus’ most successful shows, Diya Aur Baati Hum is going off air in August. It is hailed as one of the most progressive shows of our times where an illiterate husband, Sooraj (Anas Rashid) helps his wife Sandhya (Deepika Singh) follow her dreams of becoming an IPS officer. It ruled the channel for two years but the TRPs have been declining since some time now. There are reports that the makers are planning to come with a season two that will have new leads. The name of actor Sharman Joshi was doing the rounds along with Sonu Sood.
However, the actor told Bollywood Life in an exclusive statement, “This is not true at all. I have no clue about this. Don’t know where these rumours are coming from.” It seems the makers are on a lookout for an actor who can play a 35 year old. Actor Sonu Sood also told us that he is not going to be part of the venture. He said, “It is totally untrue.”
Diya Aur Baati Hum 2 will reportedly be shot in Kerala with new crop of actors. Neelu Vaghela, Kanika Maheshwari and Karan Godwani will be retained from the original cast. The show will end on a positive note and the last tracks will focus on child-trafficking. Stay tuned for more updates
