If you think that it was the last season of Salman Khan’s highly controversial reality show Bigg Boss that shot Dipika Kakar to fame, think again! The actress had become a household name way before Bigg Boss 12 came her way, thanks to Rashmi Sharma Telefilms’ Sasural Simar Ka wherein she played the title role for 8 long years.

It has been almost a year since Dipika has not taken up a fiction show. But if latest reports are to be believed, her fans will soon get to see her on Star Plus’ upcoming show. Yes, Dipika Kakar has been signed on to play the female lead in one of Star Plus’ forthcoming soaps.

Tentatively titled Pani Puri, the show is being produced by Sandiip Sikcand in association with SOL Productions. It will feature Dipika in the role of an actress. According to reports, she has already started shooting for her new offering.

Besides Dipika, Pani Puri also stars Karan V Grover, Abhishek Malik, Prachee Shah Pandya, and Tanaaz Irani in important roles. Karan V Grover has been paired opposite the actress on the show.

The show is expected to hit the airwaves towards the end of the next month.

More details are awaited.
