After the big names of Shaheer Sheikh, Sameer Dharmadhikari, Sayantani Ghosh, Pallavi Subhash and Mansi Sharma has made news, here comes another piece of information on the addition to its long list of cast.
Praneet Bhatt who stole all hearts as the lovable character of Adi in Star One’s Geet Hui Sabse Parayi has been roped in to play the challenging character of Shakuni in the big-ticket mytho. We hear that the actor has been preparing for the show for quite a long time now.
We tried calling Praneet, but he remained unavailable even after repeated attempts.
We also dropped a text message to Producer Siddharth Tewary, but he did not revert to it till the time we filed the story.

Here’s wishing Praneet all the very best for his dual venture..
PS-Siddharth Tewary later gave us a quote saying, "It's true.Praneet has put in more than a year to prepare for this character. His hardwork will show on screen.
