A steady stream of fan mails are pouring in Zee TV’s office requesting the creative team to keep alive the character of Darshan Pandya aka Aditya, the cancer stricken father of Antara (Zaynah Vastani) in ‘Aapki Antara’.
If sources are to be believed, “The channel had been toying with the idea of giving into popular demand and extending Darshan Pandya’s presence on the show by delaying his death. But the channel has decided to stick to the original storyline of the show.”
Sources close to the production house revealed, “While Aditya’s track will soon be over, Darshan Pandya will continue to be a part of the show as ‘Aapki Antara’ is about to take a leap by a good 10 years. After the time leap, 12-year-old Antara would have grown up to the age of 21 years and the role of little Abhishek (Aditya Maheshwari) will be essayed by Darshan Pandya.”
Adding further information our source adds, “As Abhishek will be played by Darshan, Anjum Farooki will be essaying the role of 21 years old Antara.”
Looks like this is good news for all Darshan Pandya fans!
