Ali is making a comeback after two and a half years. He will be seen playing the role of a passionate scientist named Nirmaan, and his entry in the second season of Channel V's youth series will be aired on Tuesday.

"Yes, I'm returning to television after quite a long time. I wasn't too excited about the kind of projects and scripts I was hearing in the last couple of years and plus my love for music was keeping me busy as I have been djing,Â" Ali said in a statement.

The actor, who has featured in shows like "Amber Dhara", "Saat Phere - Saloni Ka Safar" and "Bandini", grabbed headlines for getting married to actress Sara Khan, followed by a public break-up.

He shares that with the role in Â"Sadda HaqÂ" he will try to bring international standards to Indian television space.

Ali added: "I have always played a lover boy on television and this character in 'Sadda Haq' is a multi-layered intelligent guy who is completely styled according to international standards. Unlike most saas-bahu sagas the character, look as well as the entire feeling of the show is like any of international series."
