"Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai" is all set to take another time jump, after which the cast will be seen in a new look. It has been reported that Ashnoor Kaur, who played the role of Naira, will not be a part of the show after the leap as the young actress wants to concentrate on her studies. Shivangi Joshi of "Begusarai" fame has reportedly been finalised to essay the role of grown-up Naira.
According to latest reports, television actor Mohsin Khan will join the cast as Naira's love interest, Kartik. Mohsin was last seen on "Dream Girl," where he played the role of Samar.
Meanwhile, before the story moves several years ahead, Naira will reportedly have an argument with her family, which will result in her leaving home. While this will leave the viewers wondering about Naira's whereabouts, post-leap Naira will be seen living in Hrishikesh, away from her loving parents. The upcoming track will reportedly mark the entry of Shivangi on the show.
"Kartik will belong from a well to do family, but will not have much interest in his family business. Hence, he will join Naitik (Karan Mehra) as an associate. And on a business trip to Hrishikesh, he will meet Naira, who would be residing there after leaving her home," a source told Tellychakkar.com.
Post-leap, Naksh aka Rohan Mehra will be seen sporting Aamir Khan's look from his film "Ghajini." Not just that, the young bubbly son of Akshara (Hina Khan) and Naitik (Karan Mehra) will turn into a responsible and caring son.
Also, the show's lead actress, Hina, who was reportedly reluctant about ageing on-screen, will continue to be part of the show and play the mother of grown-up children. The actress will also be seen sporting a new look after the time-jump. "Hina who was shown to be sporting IndoWestern outfits post the 10-year leap, will go ultra modern now wearing tops and palazzos," a source had told the Times of India.
