Actor Himmanshoo Malhotra, last seen in 'Ek Nayi Ummeed Roshni', will soon join the cast of Siddharth Kumar Tewary's 'Shankar Jai Kishan 3 in 1'. Interestingly, he had auditioned for the title role, but the deal couldn't materialise. Himmanshoo says, "I even did a mock shoot for the role, but it wasn't meant to be."
Talking about his character, he adds, "I play Prem; the name itself is iconic enough for me to take up the role. He is filthy rich and has an innate sense of humour, which attracts Dimple (Kritida Mistry, one of the three heroines) towards him. This is the first time I'll be indulging in situational comedy. As an artiste, it's important to explore new genres and break boundaries; that's why I have moved to a light-hearted role from the intense ones done previously."
Himmanshoo has featured in several shows, including 'Airlines', 'Yeh Hai Aashiqui' and 'Love Marriage Ya Arranged Marriage'. He was also seen shaking a leg with his wife Amruta Khanvilkar on the celebrity couple dance reality show, 'Nach Baliye 7', and participated in the seventh season of 'Khatron Ke Khiladi' a year later.
