Karan Sharma, who was last seen in Balaji’s Pyaar Ka Bandhan, will now play an important character in Rajan Shahi’s Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai.

A source says, “Karan plays Rishabh who returns to India from abroad on his parents’ insistence. He is invited for a Diwali get-together by Naitik’s family and that’s where he meets Sneha. He likes her instantly and this will start a small love story between the two. This will also solve Akshara’s troubles. Karan has already started shooting.”

Karan confirmed his entry in the show. He says, “Yes, I am paired opposite Sneha.”
