Meanwhile, as reported by Telly Chakkar, small screen stars like Gurmeet Choudhary, Karan Patel, Arhaan Behl and Gautam Gulati were initially approached to play the role of Anuj before Gaurav Khanna was roped in.
Gurmeet Choudhary impressed everyone after playing the role of Lord Ram in Ramayan, however, the actor refused to work on Anupama as he could not connect with Anuj Kapadia’s character. Meanwhile, Gautam Gulati was more inclined towards working Bollywood movies instead of returning to television.
On the other hand, Mann Ki Awaaz Pratigya fame Arhaan Behl refused to work in the show as he was busy with some other projects. In the end, Karan Patel was unwilling to do the show because of his personal commitments.

Earlier in an interview with Spotboye, Gaurav shared his excitement to work on such a popular show, he said, “I have always wanted to work with Rajan Shahi for the longest time and the moment I felt like this. I was really happy to get a chance to play the role. And grabbed it with both hands. My character is being appreciated a lot and people are liking my character. Wherever I go people started addressing me as Anuj And it feels amazing. Some people come and tell me that I’ve made glasses back in fashion. I just used it to add a touch of age to my character and make it look more mature. I’m glad it did so much Well done. I hope the audience continues to love the show.”
