Karan Singh Grover, who had bid adieu to television in 2013 after establishing himself as a household name with such successful shows as Dill Mill Gayye and Qubool Hai, was in two minds about returning to the small screen. He took a lot of time in signing KZK on the dotted line.

We also heard that charming actor Harshad Chopra was also in the running to bag the role of Mr Bajaj. However, Ekta Kapoor was quite keen on having Karan Singh Grover onboard and, after a lot of convincing, the actor finally agreed to do the show.

Original Kasautii Zindagii Kay had Ronit Roy in the role of Mr Bajaj. When the actor got to know from Ekta that Karan Singh Grover has come onboard to reprise the same role in the reboot version of the show, he wished him luck.

“Karan Singh Grover is finalized as the new Mr Bajaj and Ekta Kapoor confirmed the same too. KSG is the only actor who was in season 1 and now in season 2 as well. He is very lucky as he is getting a chance to be part of both the seasons. I feel that what Karan will do as Mr Bajaj should not be compared with my work as Mr Bajaj, as I did it 15 years ago. The time and the actors then were different. KSG is an accomplished actor. He will add his own flavour to the role. I wish that Karan does so well that people forget the original Mr Bajaj,” he shared.
