One question that has kept every Indian television buff hooked is: who is going to play Mr Bajaj on Kasautii Zindagii Kay. In the past month, several names have cropped up, but producer Ekta Kapoor is yet to announce the name of the actor who will play one of the most iconic characters of Indian television.
According to some reports, Karan Singh Grover is leading the race to be the next Mr Bajaj. However, the actor is still in two minds about taking up a television project after having moved on from the medium a couple of years ago.
On the other hand, some media reports suggest that the handsome hunk has been finalized to play the said character on the Star Plus show. But that has not stopped the makers from approaching other actors also. Why?
Reportedly, Karan Singh Grover is expecting to be paid higher than the other leading cast members of the show along with a minimum guarantee of shooting for the maximum days in a month. The makers perhaps don’t want to give in to his demands and hence talks are on with other actors also.
“While Karan is expecting the production house to fulfil these clauses, he also wants to put in limited hours of working a day. In a successful daily soap, where the stakes are so high, it becomes difficult to bend the rules for just one person,” reveals a source.
Well, it looks like Karan Singh Grover is seriously not interested in coming back to television and hence these tantrums. What do you think?
