Kumkum Bhagya, which has been one of the most popular shows on the channel, has also kickstarted its shoot and viewers are eagerly waiting to know what will happen next in Ranbir (Krishna Kaul) and Prachi's (Mugdha Chaphekar) life.

After all, he is engaged to be married to Maya! But with his grandmother Daljeet and mother Pallavi seeing Ranbir and Prachi's chemistry in the mall, will they decide to stop Ranbir's engagement with Maya in the nick of time? Well, the fresh episodes, which will air from 13th July will surely have some interesting twists and turns and one such interesting twist to the story is the entry of a new character, Dushyant Singh Chaubey played by none other than popular TV star, Manish Khanna.

The seasoned actor is all set to join the cast of Kumkum Bhagya and he will stir up Ranbir and Prachi's life. Essaying the role of Maya's uncle, he will try and create a lot of obstacles in Ranbir and Prachi's life. Playing a grey character, Manish will be seen playing a crucial part in how the storyline progresses and he's kicked about bagging the part.

Talking about joining the Kumkum Bhagya cast, Manish Khanna revealed, "Kumkum Bhagya is one of the most popular shows on Indian television and joining the show is an honour. This is my second consecutive negative role on a Zee TV show after Ishq Subhan Allah and I am sure the viewers will enjoy the twists and turns I bring in Ranbir and Prachi's life. We've already started shooting and I am really happy to be back on the set and I can't wait for everyone to see the fresh twists I bring on the show starting from 13th July."
