The lady has been off the screens for a year now and with this show she is supposed to make a comeback. This will also be her first project on Hindi television.

Another actor who plays a very important role in the series is noted Indian actor and theatre personality Ram Gopal Bajaj. The PadmaShri awardee was last seen in Star Plus’ Rishton Ka Chakravyuh and Akshay Kumar starrer Jolly LLB 2.
