I tried this on my friend'd Jio router. After turning on bridge mode on LAN1 Port. LAN1 Port cable goest to his Linksys E4200 WAN Port. But E4200 didnt fetch any WAN IP.
Maybe a proper vlan id is required.

Ah, it is a plain dhcp connection. Most likely they are registering the mac address of the router at their end.

My suggestion would be to clone the mac address of the primary router to the secondary router. That way once the bridge is setup the ISP end will still see the traffic from the mac address registered with them.

@cisco_tech try that out.

Tried that as well but no luck. This test was done some 4-5 months ago. Don't know if anything has changed from their backend. May try again if I go to his place.
