According to our source, "The popular faces from Aap Ki Antara, Aarav Vehal and Raj Simaria (who played Billu and Abhishek respectively) have bagged roles in Rakth Sambandh. Aarav will be playing the role of Yash and Raj will be playing the role of Aryan, both sons of second sister Sakshi (Sayantani Ghosh) and Aditya (Sachin Shroff)."
Raj Simaria's mother Kavita tells us, "Yes, it's a great opportunity to be working with Antara's gang again. Raj plays the role of a very naughty boy."
We spoke to Aarav's mother Vijaya who says, "It's like we're working with family! Both Aarav and Raj get along very well. The kids just have a jolly good time. It feels good to work with UTV too."
Accordin to our source, "Zaynah Vastani who played Antara was also offered a part in Rakth Zambandh. But her mother couldn't give the green signal due to personal reasons."
Muskaan Uppal (who was earlier seen in Balaji's Kis Desh Mein Hai Meraa Dil and Pyaar Ka Bandhan, presently seen in Star Plus' Sasural Genda Phool) and Sahil Deshmukh (who played the school going Abhishek in Aap Ki Antara) have bagged the role of the eldest sister Savita (Bhargavi Chirmule) and Jayesh's (Nihar Thakkar) children.
Muskan mom tells us, "In the initial episodes the story will revolve around the elder sister's family. So Muskaan and Sahil have good opportunities to play their parts."
Rakth Sambandh will tentatively be launched in mid-July on Imagine.
