Major changes knock on the doors of Zee TV’s Ek Tha Raja Ek Thi Rani (Sphereorigins).
The periodic drama, which launched with much fanfare, initially had popular faces Drashti Dhami and Siddhant Karnick in lead roles.
The opening trajectory was all about low ratings, which led to change in the train of thought.
A leap was introduced, Drashti and Siddhant went out and came in new characters, enacted by Sarrtaj Gill, Eisha Singh and Iqbal Khan.
Now, again the show is set for a monumental shift in its plot progression. It’s up for a another leap of 10 years.
As per our sources, Raja (Sarrtaj) will have a major showdown with Iqbal (Iqbal Khan). During the fight, Rani (Eisha) will save Raja and kill Iqbal. However, in the shocking development, Rani will kill herself as well. This will mark the exit of Iqbal from the serial.
We have also heard that, post the jump, the story will shift to Mumbai revolving around Raja.
And like a classic daily soap plot, there are high chances of Rani's return to the thick of things, and makers are still working on Rani’s character on how and when she will make a comeback. Moreover, Poonam Preet and Anita Raj might also return to the show.
When we buzzed Sarrtaj he remained unaware about the entire development. While Eisha, Iqbal and producer Sunjoy Wadhwa remained unavailable to comment.
The leap sequence is likely to beam next week.
