According to our source, "Abhaas Mehta who was last seen in COLORS' Bairi Piya will play a young NRI lad who comes to the village. He bumps into Lakshmi and falls in love with her".
When contacted, Abhaas confirmed the news and told us, "In Bairiy Piya my character was that of the nephew of Thakur who is a happy-go-lucky chap. In Devi, my role is completely the opposite; I am very shy, silent and a man who speaks a thousand words thro' his eyes rather than mouth. My character is similar to what I am in real life. I have to work a lot on the body language too, as the guy happens to be from a royal family".
Abhaas has great expectations from his role, and is looking forward to this new challenge.
