Tv Karan Vipin Grover returns with the new-look Punarvivaah
Punarvivaah is back on Zee TV, but with a difference. The brand name remains the same, but the cast and the storyline have changed, with Karan Vipin Grover, Rubina Dilaik and Shrishty Rode now playing the lead characters.
Karan, in particular, is quite excited about the-new look. “ Punarvivaah is a show that the entire television fraternity has been talking about the last year. So getting a chance to work with such a show is a tremendous opportunity. This time only the name, Punarvivaah , has been retained but the cast has completely changed, and it will tell a completely different story of remarriage,” he says.
Karan has previously acted in Yahaan Main Ghar Ghar Kheli , where he played the devoted husband, Karan. “It’s almost a year since my fans last saw me on television. Coming back to do another show with Zee TV that made me a household name is like returning to family. The story and the subject impressed me a lot, and that is why I said ‘yes’.” “After completing my engineering I joined an event management company where I did everything for TV shows, like lights, curtains… everything. I still remember when Smriti Irani used to come on the sets and we boys stood there in a line. It was then that I thought of acting…”Coming back to Punarvivaah he reveals that the show is shot entirely in Mumbai; in fact, it has been shot in the very same house where the original Punarvivaah was shot. “We shot for 12 hours a day and 25 days a month, and the remaining five off days I used to sleep. I do not watch TV shows because I do not have the time.” Reality shows are a different cup of tea.
