In the announcement video, Sethi, who starred opposite Vikrant Massey in seasons 1 and 2, introduced the lead pair of the latest season. She says that after loving the story of Sameera (Sethi) and Veer (Massey), it's time for the audience to witness the romance between two broken souls, Agastya (Shukla) and Rumi (Sonia Rathee). She urged the fans to root for the pair.
Ekta Kapoor, who is backing the series shared a clip of Shukla and Rathee's characters sharing a kiss, a while back. That was enough to have fans speculating about what was coming. The characters were shown quarreling, making fans wonder about the relationship. The latest season, like the first two, deals with different aspects of a relationship where an unlikely couple falls in love.
In April 2020, Kapoor had made the official announcement for Season 3, and asked her followers to suggest a name for the lead. The name of Shukla was suggested by most, as he was riding on his Bigg Boss popularity wave. Expressing joy for bagging the lead in the popular franchise, he had said, "I am thrilled to announce my association with season three."
Last December, Rathee was revealed as the leading lady. An Indian-American actor and dancer, she will make her debut with the show. The show, originally launched in 2018, had chronicled the journey of two broken people, Veer and Sameera. It was widely appreciated for the theme and performances, and a second season aired in 2019, giving a happy ending to the pair's story.
