Shoaib Ibrahim Replaces Krrip Kapur Suri As The Lead In Jeet Gayi Toh Piyaa Morre

Another good news for the fans of newly married Shoaib Ibrahim - the actor has finally resumed work... can tell you exclusively that as you read this, Shoaib is on the sets of Zee TV's Jeet Gayi To Piyaa Morre in Naigaon, delivering his first shot for the show.

Shoaib is playing a character called Varun, an aspiring actor. He is a struggler who spends his days giving auditions. It’s during one these auditions that he meets Devi, and two fall in love.

His entry sequence is very dramatic and hence scheduled to be shot tomorrow, after he warms up to the team today.

He’s currently shooting with Yesha Rughani for the show’s 25-year leap.

That’s not the only change in the show though, its on-air time is also being changed and Jeet Gayi Toh Piyaa Morre will now hit TV screens on 11 pm, instead of it’s 7pm slot.

Post the leap, actress Yesha Rughani, who plays Devi in the show would play her own daughter (who naturally looks like her mother) --- whereas the makers want, or rather wanted, Adhiraj (played by Krrip Kapur Suri) to play father to a 25-year-old. Krrip who was not comfortable playing an older character, decided to quit recently.

While talking to a daily, the actor confirmed the news and said, "I communicated my decision to quit the show to the producers when they informed me about the leap. I don't want to play a father to a 25-year-old at this stage, as I don't look like one. Doing so could also be detrimental to my career. Introducing a time leap, which results in the exit of one of the faces of the show, involves a great deal of risk. So, the makers must have arrived at this decision after much deliberation. I am not upset with this development just because I am not a part of the show anymore."

Shoaib was last seen in Star Plus' Koi Lautke Aaya Hai opposite Surbhi Jyoti. He also participated in dance reality show Nach Baliye 8 with wife Dipika last year. He shot to fame playing the character of Prem Bhardawaj in Colors' longest running show Sasural Simar Ka.

Congratulations on the new beginning, Shoaib!
