"Himanshi Choudhary who essays the role of Sunita in Imagine's Rakt Sambandh will play the surrogate mother of Maharana Pratap, Saranga. Deepraj Rana will play the role of Rimal, while Amar Upadhyay has been roped in to essay Uday Singh. Shahbaaz Khan will also have a vital role to play in the show", adds our source.
