Mumbai: Shoaib Ibrahim alias Prem of famous daily soap Sasural Simar Ka has quit the show and another small screen actor Dheeraj Dhoopar will step into his shoes very soon.
According to the sources, Shoaib had stepped out of Sasural Simar Ka because he was not happy with his track. Makers of the show have selected Dheeraj as a replacement of Shoaib and his entry on the show will air sometime in mid-March.
"I haven't seen the show, but it has a good storyline. It is definitely a challenge to replace someone, but I feel characters are more important than actors on television," said Dheeraj.
Dheeraj, who is very excited about his role in the show, said, "Every role comes with a challenge. I will give my best as Prem and would expect the makers to return the favour by giving me a good track. I am sure the character will shape up nicely."
Previously, Dheeraj appeared in TV serials like Maat Pitaah Ke Charnon Mein Swarg and Kuch Toh Log Kahenge.
Sasural Simar Ka is the tale of two sisters, Simar(Deepika Samson) and Roli (Avika Gor) who step in to the same sasural by fate. Recently, the daily soap completed its 500 episodes.
