Come May 30, and actor Ratan Rajput, reportedly charging a fee of Rs 4 crore, will embark on a journey that ideally is expected to wind up with her tying the knot towards the end of June or early July with one of the 16 prospective grooms, chosen from over 54,000 entries. The bride-to-be will be seen interacting with all the dulhas before zeroing in on her Mr Perfect.
However, if sources are to be believed, Ratan Ka Rishta, which has found its penultimate participants in April towards the end of its month-long shoot schedule, could end up with a climax similar to that of season one with Rakhi Sawant, since the Agle Janam Mohe Bitiya Hi Kijo (Zee TV) actor isn’t sure about which man she’d eventually garland.
Most of the men participating on the show are North-Indians, largely from Delhi. It’s even said that out of the last six participants who shot till the last week of April, at least three were from Delhi. Coincidentally, Ratan’s family is settled in the capital too.
