Ashish Vidyarthi in Smriti Iranis Waaris...
Smriti Irani, who created history by casting the Evergreen Vinod Khanna in Ugraya Productions’ Mere Apne on 9X has once again come up with an ace as she gets the very popular face of Bollywood, the National Award winner Ashish Vidyarthi to play the dad in her Zee show, Waaris.

An actor par excellence, Ashish Vidyarthi who has donned various villainous roles on the silver screen returns to television after a long gap. A well-placed source says, “Smritiji wanted a well-known face playing the father in Waaris. Ashish Vidyarthi was confirmed just yesterday to play dad to Iqbal Khan and Yuvraj Malhotra in the serial”.

Aashka Goradia of Kkusum fame will be paired opposite Iqbal Khan. When Telly Buzz buzzed the actress for confirmation, Aashka said, “Talks are on for the show, but nothing has been confirmed yet”. Our source also reveals that in addition to Bhawna Roy, Smriti is planning to cast Khushboo Purohit who was seen in Sharad Malhotra’s ‘Toofani Toli’ in the 9X reality show, Vodafone Yeh Hai Jalwa…

With all the big names already in the kitty, Smriti Irani’s Waaris surely seems to be a worth-watch for the viewers!!
