Apart from Deepika Singh, the show also stars Namik Paul and Vin Rana in lead roles. SpotboyE.com had broken the story that Ekta dropped Namik from the show Kasautii Zindagii Kay 2 as she wanted him to play an important role in this series. A source close to Balaji Productions told us that Namik auditioned for Kavach 2 and Kasautii Zindagii Kay 2, on the same day at Klick Nixon studios and got finalised for Kasautii Zindagii Kay 2. But the twist came when Ekta saw his auditions for both the shows, and ultimately decided to choose him as the lead of Kavach 2 instead of the other one.

Also, we were the first to reveal to you that Deepika Singh is making a comeback with this show. A source close to Kavach 2 had told us, "Deepika and Namik shot for their mahurat scene in a Shiv Temple located in Naigaon. Deepika looked very happy, she waited quite a bit before getting a nice break. She did not want to take up anything fluffy for just the heck of it."

Another interesting piece of news that we brought you is that Deepika will have a double role on the show. She will essay the protagonist Sandhya and also portray the role of Daayan on the show which premieres on June 1. Coincidentally, her screen name in Diya Aur Baati Hum was also Sandhya.
