Shoaib Ibrahim and Dipika Kakar Ibrahim’s show, Sasural Simar Ka holds a special place in the hearts of the couple as they became household names with this serial. From 2011 to 2018, this sasural had kept everyone hooked to their TV screens and it had some of the most bizarre moments in the history of Indian television. With the protagonist turning into a fly, daayan, naagin, basic humans and fictional characters co-existing in one space and the mind-numbing plot-twists, Sasural Simar Ka had always grabbed the news for its weird plotlines. Now that Sasural Simar Ka is coming back with a new season, we can’t wait to see who will be the Prem to OG Simar, Dipika.
It was on March 21, 2021, when Dipika Kakar Ibrahim had announced her return as Simar in Sasural Simar Ka 2 and released the first promo. Dipika captioned the promo post as “Simar is a part of me that has always been alive in me for all these years & here today she is ready once again to make her way to your hearts... Are you ready... Lets create magic again.” Her proud husband, Shoaib Ibrahim had also shared the video and expressed his excitement for show in the caption, which could be read as “Aa rahi hai ek baar phir Meri Simar, Aapki Simar Humsabki Simar! Safar naya lekin jazbaat wahi.... i just cant wait. Proud of you my bachcha @ms.dipika.” Shoaib hosted an ‘Ask Me Anything’ session on Instagram on March 24, 2021, where he was asked about his ammi’s reaction to Dipika’s promo. Shoaib recorded his ammi commenting on Dipika’s promo and saying that she is extremely happy to see Dipika back on TV as Simar after a long time.
With Dipika Kakar Ibrahim announcing her return as Simar in Sasural Simar Ka 2, fans are eager to know if Shoaib Ibrahim will play the role of Prem. Commenting on the same, Dipika had said in an interview with the Bombay Times, “I would love Shoaib to play Prem again on the show. But for now, I don’t want to comment on that.” Revealing that in her sasural, she is still addressed as Simar, Dipika had continued, “I have always maintained that Simar is a part of me and will always be alive in me. I may have played the character for six years, but I continue to live it till date. People in my sasural still address me as Simar. Initially, they connected with me because of the show.” (Also Read: Rubina Dilaik And Abhinav Shukla Reveal How Do They Settle Fights After Narrowly Escaping Divorce)
