The Young and the Restless star Abhi Sinha (Ravi Shapur) has just landed a new exciting role on the primetime series Designated Series. Fans know Abhi as Ravi Shapur on the hit CBS daytime television soap.
Designated Survivor is a political drama television series created by David Guggenheim and stars veteran actor Kiefer Sutherland. During Season 1, an explosion claimed the lives of the President and everyone in the line of succession except for the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, Thomas Kirkman (played by Sutherland).
Abhi shared a new photo on his Instagram account with a sneak peak of the show’s script. He captioned the photo with, “See you soon @italiaricci.”
Of course, Abhi Sinha isn’t the only The Young and the Restless star to join the show. Actress McKenna Grace, who fans know as Faith Newman, stars as President Kirkman’s daughter.
