For those who came in late Upadhyay is currently suffering a bout of amnesia after an accident. To complicate matters, Dev has gotten himself a new face thanks to plastic surgery after said accident. Needless to say, Upadhyay replaced Varun Badola when the face change occurred.

As for Savant, she was bumped off Kyunki... a few months ago. As Teesha, Savant had a fatal accident when Mandira Bedi's car clashed with hers. Now roped into Des Mein, Savant claims to have been married to Upadhyay when the latter suffered a loss of memory after his accident.

Both Savant and Upadhyay are Balaji actors who have made their way into Aroona Irani's production.
