The makers of the show, which airs on channel Pal, hope to tell inspiring tales imparting life lessons to kids by bringing the new character.
"We will be using that plot (of 'Vikram Aur Betaal'), but the screenplay and the characterization will be different. They (makers of the past show) portrayed the roles in a different manner and we will try to show them in other circumstances," Dheeraj Kumar, producer of Singhasan Battisi, told over phone from Mumbai.
There's a Vikram in the show too -- King Vikramaditya -- the lead character, who will be seen talking with Betaal, in order to fulfill a vow.
"We have taken the character of Betaal only as our story already has Vikram. It will be interesting to watch the change in the storyline," Dheeraj added.
Actors Arhaan Bhel and Abhaas Mehta are in talks for portraying the role of Betaal, but a formal announcement is yet to be made.
