Ayaz Ahmed aka Cabir has grabbed quite a few headlines for his path-breaking role as a gay musician in "Kaisi Yeh Yaariaan", and now he is reportedly set to make some more news for taking up a social-mythological project.

According to a Bollywood Life report, he will be seen romancing "Agle Janam Mohe Bitiya Hi Kijo" actress Ratan Rajput in "Jai Santoshi Maa" .

To be aired November end onwards, Ayaz will be seen essaying the role of a small-town girl who falls in love for Ratan, a worshipper of goddess Santoshi maa.

Also, actress Gracy Singh will play the almighty. The show also features Juhi Parmar, Smriti Khanna and Sachin Shroff in lead roles, reported the web portal. 

The actor's stint on "KY2" came to end with his character dying in a bomb blast, along with Manik Malhotra (Parth Samthaan). However, Parth is back after fans protested vehemently on social media that they wouldn't watch the show if it's leading man didn't return.

Interestingly, Ayaz too has a strong fan base and they have been requesting the makers on Twitter to get him back on the show.

Here are a few tweets:
