Mumbai: Bigg Boss 13 popular jodi Sidharth Shukla and Shehnaaz Gill are likely to be seen together once again on-screen in the lead roles if the makers of the show Kumkum Bhagya plan a sequel or reboot with a different cast and characters. In an interview with Tellychakkar, the casting director of Kumkum Bhagya, Shadman Khan said that he wishes to cast Sidharth Shukla and Shehnaaz Gill if the show gets a reboot. He was quoted as saying by the portal, “I would love to cast Sidharth and Shehnaaz if Kumkum Bhagya plans on a sequel or reboot with a different cast, as their personalities match the characters Abhi and Pragya.”
Currently, Shabir Ahluwalia plays the role of Abhi, and Sriti Jha essays the role of Pragya. Khan was casting director for many television shows including Half Marriage, Kahaan Hum Kahaan Tum, Yeh Hai Chahatein, Laal Ishq among others. As per him, if the actors of the show are not accurate according to the characters then everything remains incomplete.
