Of late, popular actor Mishal Raheja has been in news for bagging the lead role in an upcoming show titled "Sangharsh" produced by Shashi Sumeet Productions.

While fans of the hunk must be wondering as to who will be paired opposite Mishal, according to India Forums, Chhavi Pandey of "Silsila Pyaar Ka" fame has apparently been finalised for the role. Besides Chhavi, Rageeni Nandwani of "Mrs. Kaushik Ki Paanch Bahuein" fame was one of the strong contenders for the female lead.

If the deal between the makers and Chhavi gets sealed, it would be interesting to see Mishal and Chhavi romancing each other on-screen for the first time. However, no confirmation has been made by the makers or the actors regarding the female lead.

"Sangharsh" will deal the subject of surrogacy and the makers are currently working on the project as well as the cast. This will be Shashi Sumeet Productions' next ambitious project after the success of "Diya Aur Baati Hum."

"Shashi Sumeet Productions' next venture, based on a social issue will launch soon. The makers are quite keen on roping Mishal for the role of the male lead. After Diya Aur Baati Hum, this will be Shashi Sumeet's big project on screen," a source had told

It was reported that "Sangharsh" would be telecast at 10:30 p.m. slot on Colors channel, thereby replacing "Krishndasi," which would be moved from 10:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. time slot.

Meanwhile, Mishal's ongoing show "Ishq Ka Rang Safed," which has Sanjeeda Shaikh in female lead role, will go off air on Aug. 28.
