"Punar Vivah", about remarriage, will hit the channel in a new avatar soon. Neither a second season nor a leap, it will bring a new storyline with a new cast.
With a focus on remarriage, "Punar Vivah" went on air last year with Gurmeet Chaudhary and Kratika Sengar playing the lead and the concept appealed to the viewers making it successful.
In the new chapter, the story will revolve around the lives of two young people and their families.
"We do not believe in stretching a plot beyond the intended span of its narrative," Ajay Bhalwankar, Zee Entertainment Enterprises Ltd, Content Head (Hindi general entertainment channel [GEC]) said in a statement.
Titled "Punar Vivah... Ek Nayi Umeed", the new version will once again be produced by Shashi-Sumeet.
"While the story of 'Punar Vivah' with its original characters of Yash and Aarti has run its full course and comes to an end shortly, we feel that the subject of remarriage offers an extremely interesting canvas for story-telling and there are so many layers of a man-woman relationship that can be explored. Hence the new story, the new chapter," said Bhalwankar.
