Ever since Ekta Kapoor had announced on beginning the hunt for new Mr Bajaj in Kasautii Zindagii Kay 2 on social media, several names have cropped up to play the iconic character earlier essayed by Ronit Roy.
While Karan Wahi was said to have bagged the role, the latest news is that there has been a last moment change and Karan Singh Grover will now portray the role of Mr Bajaj and will be seen romancing Erica Fernandes aka Prerna on screen.

The actor seemed quite happy with Karan stepping into his shoes and said, "I'm very happy for Karan bagging the role of Bajaj. I think he'll do a great job. My good wishes are with him. May he and kzk2 attain much greater heights of popularity than I did," SpotboyE quoted Ronit as saying.
When asked if he has any advice for Karan, Ronit replied, "He's a seasoned actor and doesn't need my advice. All I can say is, be cool."
