We had earlier reported that Jatin Shah had almost been finalized, when he backed out for certain reasons. The news is that Yuvraj Malhotra of Betiyaan and Waaris fame will now essay the role of Viren, the youngest of the three brothers.
According to our source, "Yuvraj Malhotra aka Viren will be a positive character, loved by all in the family. However, there is a chance of this character turning grey as the story unfolds. The track with respect to the killing of Preet has not been finalized yet. It is speculated that this guy will eventually be cast as the new guy in Meher's life after the death of Preet".
When contacted, Yuvraj Malhotra confirmed the news and said, "Yes, I am part of Kis Desh, and this is my first show with Balaji. I always wanted to work with them, and when I got this offer, I grabbed it with both hands".
When asked about the character he will portray, the actor said, "I have just been finalized. I have not been given the narration as of now".
Yuvraj was last seen portraying a negative role in Sahara One's Doli Saja Ke.
