Dheeraj Dhoopar, better known as Prem in 'Sasural Simar Ka' ('SSK'), is back in action after a three-month mini break. The actor, who quit 'SSK', has been roped in to play the male lead in Shabbir Ahluwalia-Sriti Jha-starrer 'Kumkum Bhagya's spin-off, 'Kundali Bhagya'. Dheeraj tells us, "This is a dream project as the audience will get to see me in a never-seen-before avatar. After portraying a doting husband in 'SSK', I will now play a flamboyant and stylish Casanova."
Is he nervous that people will draw comparisons between him and Shabbir? "I am not taking over from anyone. Of course, Shabbir has done a swell job on his show, but 'Kundali Bhagya' is my project. There will be comparisons, but I will carve out my own identity with the new show," he replies.
