Now, this versatile artist is all set to add another feather to his cap as the producer of Shemaroo Umang’s upcoming show ‘Kyunkii Tum Hi Ho.’ Yes! He has begun a new journey as a producer for the coming-of-age drama, where he also plays the lead role of Karan Pratap Singh. Amar is super thrilled about the show, as it includes his special connection with the word ‘Kyunkii.’

“I’ve experimented with a plethora of shows before, Kyunkii Tum Hi Ho holds a special place in my heart, as I finally venture into the world of production.
