After a long hunt for someone to portray the role of Mr Rishab Bajaj in Kasautii Zindagii Kay 2, producer Ekta Kapoor has finally settled down on Karan Singh Grover. The actor enjoys humungous popularity on television, especially amongst female fans. Karan rose to fame with his character as Dr Armaan in Dill Mill Gayye.

Ekta Kapoor took to her Instagram account to share this news. She shared a photo of Karan Singh Grover with salt-and-pepper hair and decked in a black suit. She described the character as: "Hello Rishab !!! U are hardhearted as steel and sexy old wine ....
