Here are a few details on how the ‘bride swap’ will happen
Mahesh Bhatt’s Star Plus show ‘Naamkarann’ recently lost its main antagonist, veteran actress Reema Lagoo, who was essaying the character of Dayavanti Mehta in the show.
However, as they say, life must go on. After a day of mourning, the cast and crew is back to work. The makers also brought in ‘Saraswatichandra’ actress Ragini Shah, as Reema Lagoo’s replacement.
The show is currently showcasing the wedding of Neil (Zain Imam) and Riya (Nalini Negi), where the audience will see the same old ‘bride swap’ happening. But this bride swap will be a little hatke.
And here’s how.
As seen in the previous episodes, Avni (Aditi Rathore) and Ali (Gautam Vig), have successfully planted doubt in Riya’s mind that Neil does not love her. Also, when Riya questions Neil, his no answer stance convinces Riya further, that maybe Avni is right.
This instills doubt in Riya’s mind and she decides to run away from the Mehta household and her marriage with Neil. Riya even gets her tickets booked to leave the town, but at the last moment Dayavanti catches hold of Riya and brings her back. She even threatens Riya that she would send her to the same place that she sent Avni years ago (indirectly she threatens to kill Riya just like she did to Avni). Forcefully, Riya is made to go through all the pre-marriage rituals.
However, things take a turn when Neela (Sayantani Ghosh) and Shweta (Shruti Ulfat) tie Riya up, thereby not letting her reach the wedding mandap in the first place. Avni then dresses up as the bride and gets married to Neil.
And then goes Dayavanti’s plan of taking Neil’s money and leaving the country with Amol, for a toss!
