Yeh Hai Mohabbatein, featuring Divyanka Tripathi & Karan Patel, likely to get its spin-off; Ekta Kapoor looking for new faces

Yeh Hai Mohabbatein, one of TV’s longest running shows, is expected to get its own spin-off and the shoot is likely to begin next month.

The show with Divyanka Tripathi and Karan Patel in lead roles finished five years last December, and there have been numerous rumours about it going off-air.

However, reports now hint that the makers are instead considering to make a spin-off, titled Yeh Hai Chahatein.

There have also been speculations that in season 2 for Yeh Hai Mohabbatein, Aakanksha Singh and Karan Vohra could play the lead roles, instead of Divyanka and Karan. However, Ekta Kapoor hasn’t endorsed these reports.

In this new show, producer Ekta Kapoor has been looking for new faces. The auditions of the show’s starcast have started and if all goes well, then it is likely to go to the floor by the end of June.

A source close to the show said, “Ekta Kapoor wanted to bring this new show last year, but at that time there was a lot of delay in the finalization of the storyline. Now when the writers are ready with the basic concept, the auditions have started and plans are being made to bring it by the end of next month.”

Meanwhile, Divyanka Tripathi and her husband Vivek Dahiya are one of the most popular celebrity couple of the television world. The two of them never seem to stop from showing their love for each other.

While Divyanka is very much popular among her fans as the girl next door, Vivek too has a huge fan base owing to his good looks and charismatic personality. The celebrity couple who got married in 2016 has shone in their individual acting careers as well.
