Arjun mesmerises the viewers with his acting skills in “Naagin” and as per numerous reports the 33-year old actor will replace Sidhant Gupta aka Kunj after Sidhant decided to quit the show. Sidhant has been offered a bigger and better project, which he obviously could not reject and thus he is taking an exit route from this popular show on Zee TV. Though Sidhant is quitting the show, he is grateful to the channel and the show, “I am whatever I am today because of the show, but I might have to quit as the project offered to me is big. The channel obviously wouldn’t want to let the male lead leave a show, but one has to move on. I hope things work out between us.”

On the other hand, Arjun will make a dramatic entry in this famous “Tashan-E-Ishq” show as Kunj, who went through an accident and returning to his family after doing plastic surgery. A close source associated with the show confirmed the storyline and said, “Kunj meets with an accident, and his face will be shown covered. Later, it will be revealed that he is Kunj with a new face after plastic surgery.”

The channel has high hopes on Arjun, who first came under the spotlight donning the character of Cadet Aalekh Sharma in ‘Left Right Left’ and is hoping the TRP of the show will increase by his charismatic entry.

Arjun recently came into the headlines as he got emotional on the last day of “Naagin” shoot. Bijlani thanked the viewers and the whole team of Naagin on his Twitter account for keeping trust and bestowing love on him.

Naagin was very much popular to the masses and also topped the Television Rating Points (TRP) charts since its inception. Fans also praised the sizzling chemistry between Mouni Roy and Arjun. Despite that, there are reports that Arjun will not sign for the new season of “Naagin” which will feature previous season’s lead actresses Mouni Roy and Adaa Khan only.
