According to our source, "Ali is entering Raja Ki Ayegi Baraat as Angad. This new character will enter to support and comfort Rani who will go through a lot of trauma in the coming episodes. Angad will be Rani's friend and confidant. Angad is a typical lover boy who can be cherished by everyone. His costumes will be very contradicting to Yudi's. He will mostly be seen in casual clothes."
Adds the source, "Ali was earlier supposed to play the lead role in Edit 2 and Sony's Jeet Jeyenge Hum. However, as he fell sick a few days back, his schedule got totally messed up and he couldn't take out ten days for the outdoor shoot of the show."
The source further tells us, "Ali's platelet count got so low that his doctors advised him not to expose his body to the outdoors much. So he put health first and decided not to go with Jeet Jayenge Hum."
We tried calling Ali Merchant, but he remained unavailable for comments.
Ali has started shooting from today and the episode featuring his entry will be aired either tomorrow or Monday.
