TellyBuzz had already reported about Karan Wahi showing no interest in the show, after he had given his initial nod.

Our source states, "Lot many known faces were short listed to play the male lead. Even Aditya Redij was approached, but the role has now landed in Siddharth Shukla's kitty. The actor has signed the contract, and is all set to start shoot this week".

Love U Zindagi has new face Pavitra Punia playing the role of Geet Dhillon. And with television's Shahid Kapoor being cast in Siddharth, this love story will be worth a watch!!
