In the sequel of Diya Aur Baati Hum, we always had a hope that Sooraj will return and the viewers will once again get to see Sooraj and Sandhya together. In Tu Sooraj Mein Saanjh Piyaji, the next generation is playing the roles and the places of Sooraj and Sandhya were empty till now. The hopes to see Anas Rashid in the show have once again risen as he has been called to play Sooraj once again.

The makers of Diya Aur Baati Hum made it quiet clear that they won’t repeat the cast in the second season Tu Sooraj Mein Saanjh Piyaji. An exception seems to be taking place as Anas Rashid informs that he has been called to return in the second season. Since last eight months, he was at his native place Malerkotla where he got a call by the makers of Tu Sooraj Mein Saanjh Piyaji. It’s been reported in the Times of India that Anas said,”I was surprised when they called me.. It feels great to get back to the show because Sooraj was one character that people never forgot. Even today, people keep asking me if the character will return show.”

He says that he follows the show and always missed the characters of Sooraj and Sandhya. He said,”Every time I watch the show, I felt that Sooraj and Sandhya were missing. They should have been part of the second season. Nevertheless, I am now back on the show. My character will mentor my onscreen daughter Kanak (Rhea Sharma) and Bhabho (Neelu Vaghela). Though the character will be seen in the flashback, , it will be an important one.”

The wish of the audience has been granted it seems. Sandhya played by Deepika Singh will not be seen again as she is unavailable to work due to her maternity leave. As Sooraj makes way for a comeback, we as viewers hope that his character will be seen in a new light. He started his career 14 years ago and has traveled a long way after starring in giants like Kahin To Hoga, Prithviraj Chauhan which made him shoot to fame. He was recently in the news after he got engaged to Hina Iqbal. She is a corporate professional from Chandigarh and the couple has plans to get married by the end of the year. (Also Read: Anas Rashid engaged!
