Rajeev Mehta of Baa Bahu Aur Baby and Khichdi fame will be seen in a new avatar in COLORS' Mukti Bandhan..



Rajeev Mehta who is popularly known as Praful of Khichdi will soon enter COLORS' Muktibandhan!!

In the episodes to come, it will be revealed that Rajeev who plays a total alcoholic is in someway related to Bhavanji Bha (Ramesh Talwar).

Our source states, "Rajeev will play the character of Dalichand who will be shown yelling at Bhavanji Bha, asking him to give him some money. Dalichand is a boozer, and is a bit cynical in mind and thinks that he has all the right to get money from his family for his drink. Initially, the connection between Bhavnaji and Dalichand will not be revealed".

If sources are to be believed, Dalichand might go on to be the father of Devki (Esha Kansara). However, at this point there is no confirmation to this, and we hear that there will be a Maha Episode in the coming weeks which will reveal Dalichand's identity..

When contacted, Rajeev Mehta confirmed the news and said, "It feels nice to be working again with Shobhna Desai Productions. They gave me my first big break in Ek Mahal Ho Sapnon Ka. This character of Dalichand is very different from the roles I have played so far. My roles in Khichdi and Baa Bahu Aur Baby have been very popular, and I am now all ready for this challenge. Dalichand is a typical alchoholic. I have shot for only one day till now, so do not have a proper character sketch. All I know is that this character will have its own importance as the story goes on".

Rajeev's entry sequence will be aired tonight in Mukti Bandhan..
