A little birdie tells us, "The team is planning the next phase of the story right now. Casting is on for the introduction of the post leap characters. Initially, there were plans to show Rahil Azam as the grown-up Kesar. However, this development might not happen now as the production house is planning to cast a new face to play the grown-up Kesar. The character of Talli, presently played by Sparsh Khanchandani will also be part of the post leap story".
We hear that there is a faint possibility of Rahil Azam coming back as Vasant. However, this will again depend on the ratings of Gulaal. The leap was to happen in the last week of March, but it has now been pushed to April.
Our source tells us, "The show has got stagnant at the 2 TVR mark and has not been showing any sign of improvement. With lot many shows being planned on Star Plus, Gulaal is one of the shows that has been placed under the scanner. If things do not fall in place, Gulaal might be shown the door post IPL. Looking at all this, one can clearly say that the leap might just be the last chance that the show gets to stake its claim".
We tried contacting Rahil Azam to know whether he has been approached for a comeback as Vasant, but we could not get thro' to him.
We tried contacting Producer Sunjoy Wadhwa for a confirmation on the leap, but he too remained unavailable.
However, a reliable source connected to the show did confirm that the leap is surely coming!!
We hope Gulaal gets the much-needed face-lift with the coming leap…
