Your favorite 'Simar' and her 'sasural' are returning with Season-2
Popular TV series, Sasural Simar Ka is returning for the second season. This edition too will be led by Dipika Kakar, who had played the main character in the first season for six years. Colors shared a promo for the new season, which features Kakar announcing her return, and speaking about the love that brought her back. No date has been announced yet though.
Kakar appeared in a red saari for her Simar avatar, and greeted viewers with her signature Jai Mata Di. She revealed that she will be returning soon, along with some new faces. The actress shared the promo on Instagram, writing how Simar was "a part of [her] that has always been alive" for all these years. She concluded it as, "Let's create magic again."
Kakar also spoke to a national daily about this, where she said that she owes her success as an actor today to Sasural. "I may have played the character for six years, but I continue to live it till date," she added, hence its Season 2 is the right pick to break her hiatus. She also revealed that her character "will be more strong."
The show is special for Kakar on a personal level too. After all, she had met her husband, Shoaib Ibrahim, on the sets of this show. They eventually got married in 2018. When asked if Shoaib is returning as Prem, Kakar remained tight-lipped. "I'd love Shoaib to play Prem again. But for now, I don't want to comment on that," was her reply.
Apart from Kakar and Ibrahim, Sasural starred Avika Gor and Manish Raisinghan in important roles. The plot navigated through the lives of Simar and her sister Roli (Gor) as they solved various problems faced by the Bharadwaj family. The show enjoyed great ratings from the start, even when the makers had introduced supernatural elements. Kakar quit the show in 2017, citing a much-needed break.
