To add more spice to the show, actor Ankit Siwach, will soon be making an entry in the show. He will be seen playing a negative role for the first time; Vikram Jai Singh, opposite Jennifer Winget.

Talking about his role Siwach shared: “Vikram happens to be one of the pivotal parts of Maya’s life when she was going through the trauma 10 years ago, caused by MJ. Vikram and Maya share a past which didn’t turn out well and now Vikram has come back in to Maya’s life. He is hurt and has returned for revenge. He is in immense pain brought upon him by Maya, which he is now going to channel against her. Vikram is a sorted character but as he is quite engrossed in seeking revenge, there are layers of grey in him. My character will add to the drama and make the show spicier.”

He further added: “I am quite excited to play this character as for the first time, I am playing a grey character which is completely negative with no signs of positivity. The show is a brand in itself and I will be sharing screen space with Jennifer, about which I am really excited and happy. Every character in the show is defined and it gives immense space for creativity and it’s interesting to play along with it.”

It will be interesting to see what turns the show is going to take with this new entry.

shweta suffers burns 

Television’s one of the most popular names, Shweta Tiwari, has been winning hearts with her portrayal as Guneet Sikka in Sony Entertainment Television’s show, Mere Dad Ki Dulhan. While she had a lot of fun shooting with Fahmaan Khan for the bad date ritual scene, where she recreated the scene from Jab We Met, she burned her hands while doing that.

To forget about No Drama Please standing her up for the date, Randeep (Fahmaan Khan) suggested Guneet that she should let out her frustration by burning the saree and scarf she wore for the date. While shooting the sequence, they sure had a lot of fun recreating the scene from Jab We Met, where Geet makes Aditya burn her ex’s photograph and flush it. However, while shooting the scene, the fire went blazing partially burning Shweta’s hands. The fire caught on to the curtains and Shweta in an attempt to curb the fire, ended up getting burns.

After shooting the scene, Fahmaan said: “It was fun doing the bad date ritual scene with Shweta ma’am. It was quite a stress buster for us. But the sad part is, she ended up burning her hand a little while ceasing the fire. Everyone thought she was improvising in the scene, but she had partially burned her hands in the process.”
