The plot previously witnessed a four-year leap, and then a 20-year leap again saw new faces been introduced in the show.
In a new twist, viewers will be transported to Kolkata where Arjun (Rithvik Dhanjani), now an accomplished businessman, is settled with wife Ovi (Shruti Kanwar), who is pregnant. Meanwhile, Purvi (Asha Negi), Arjun's former love, is in Kolkata too and is also expecting a child.
The leap will set in on the episode to be aired Dec 3.
Shakti will be seen in the role of Kolkata-based gynaecologist Onir Dutta, and he is excited about joining the show's cast.
"It is an honour to be considered for one of the most successful shows on Indian television. I'd like to thank Ekta ma'am and Zee TV for the opportunity. It is an interesting role. Let us hope the audience enjoys my performance and the track in Kolkata," Shakti said in a statement.
Shakti was previously seen in Zee TV shows like "Agle Janam Mohe Bitiya Hi Kijo" and "Sanskaar Laxmi".
