Aashish Kaul, the suave Delhiite who plays Subroto Basu in Kasautii Zindagi Kay, is now trying his hand in afternoon soaps as well.
Aashish will be seen as Munna, a con man a la Abhishek Bachchan in Bunty Aur Babli, in Zee daily Piya Ka Ghar from Thursday.
The guy has kept a deliberate low profile in tellywood, despite having played key roles in Ghutan, Kkusum and Kahanii Ghar Ghar Ki on Star and Saathiya on Sahara One. But that was then and this is now.
Aashish is sure to grab some eyeballs as Munna, a con man, who is Urmila's (Sushmita Mukerji) son. Along with his wife Paro (Riddhima), Munna will instigate his mother to go back to Sukh Shanti Sadan (the Sharma household) where Urmila actually belongs. Urmila is Bhavani Shankar (Alok Nath)'s first child through another marriage.
Aashish, who has been shooting for Piya Ka Ghar for a week now, says he's sporting a rugged, 'Aamir Khan' look for the show, which will change to a polished, high society persona when he changes guises.
Should be something to watch out for.
