Child actor Vishesh Bansal has been finalized to play Karna in the upcoming mythological show 'Suryaputra Karna'.
We had earlier reported about Darsheel Safary and Faisal Khan being considered for the role, but it was finally Vishesh who has bagged the role, confirm sources. "The deal with Darsheel fell through and though Faisal was a strong candidate for the role, he will be participating in 'Jhalak Dikkhla Jaa' and it would've been difficult for him to manage two shows. So, the makers zeroed in on Vishesh to play the lead role. The team has already started shooting in Kashmir since the show is all set to go on air from next month," sources tell us.
Vishesh has done shows like 'Na Bole Tum Na Maine Kuch Kaha' and also played the young Siddhartha in Buddha. The channel's spokesperson has also confirmed the casting choice.
