Qubool Hai: Asad aka Raqesh Vashisth to walk out of the show after the leap!

The trend of leaps has finally caught up with Four Lions Films’ Qubool Hai and we are not pleased

After replacing Karan Singh Grover with Raqesh Vashisth as Asad Ahmed Khan in Qubool Hai, the show simply lost its magic. While Vashisht cannot be blamed, there couldn’t be a perfect replacement for Grover. At least that’s what the viewers believed.

KSG fans condemned the channel’s decision and hurled abuses at the makers and writers like us for the change in the cast – it’s not like we had anything to do with this decision. However, there might just be an increase in hate mails in the coming days. The buzz suggests that Qubool Hai too is planning to take two leaps in the upcoming month.

As per reports the first leap will showcase Asad and Zoya living a blissful life with their three-year-old baby girl. But the happiness will not last long, ‘coz the couple will be killed in an accident. The second leap will have Surbhi Jyoti playing the couple’s grown up daughter. Something that we have already seen in Madhubala – Ek Ishq Ek Junoon before.

That’s not it, the other giant blow to the show is that they will now have to look out for a new lead opposite Surbhi. It’s confirmed that Raqesh Vashisth is quitting the show and will not come back to romance Surbhi. The actor wrote on his social networking page that he was glad to be a part of the show until now, but will not continue with it. “The production and channel team of Qubool Hai was very keen to get me on board from day 1. I knew upon signing my work will be for a specific time period. Many would ask why I took the offer to begin with. Firstly, for Gul, I really admired and still admire her and wanted to work with her. As an actor, it’s important to work with people your thoughts and wavelength matches and be creatively satisfied. Maybe Gul and I will do something bigger and better in the future. Who knows? Qubool Hai definitely presented challenges in front of me – pressure of replacement, of joining a show in between and its sudden end. But as an actor, I am secure to know that closure of shows is not the end for an actor. TV is in a great space today with various acting opportunities to offer. I cannot limit my hunger to learn or myself out of fear of anything. I’m open to diverse roles and experiments more than ever. I really enjoyed my stint in the show, and I am happy that I could give them their ‘Asad’ when they needed one. I wish the entire team of Qubool Hai and Zee TV massive success. May the show prosper for everyone just as it has always done.”

Several other actors from the show will also be leaving along with Raqesh. Mohit Sehgal who plays Haider is in talks with the makers about the future of his character post the leap. Mumani (Alka Kaushal), Dilshaad (Shalini Kapoor) and Tanveer (Amarpali Gupta) have decided to be loyal and stick around even if they will age onscreen.

Frankly, we think the makers have had a decent and successful run for a long time and may be it’s time to bring the curtains down for Qubool Hai. Considering that the show has stood tall with its unique story line and amazing characters, if it decides to continue with run of the mill ideas to sustain, we don’t know if they will manage to recreate the same magic?

    It shouldn’t shut down, the makers and channel should make up to the viewers and bring karan singh grover back and show us qubool hai season 2 with karan and surbhi #KaBhi

    • jasmine

      I honestly feel there is nothing wrong with rajesh vashisht. To me he is as handsome as karan grover singh. i kind of have same respect for him as karan grover.rajesh pulled off the show as gracefully as karan.

  • kanthi narayanan

    We want Karan back on the show post leap as SJ new lead in season 2. I hope channel this time really listens to the ardent viewers

  • Sherry

    While Vashisht cannot be blamed? Really? He ruined Asad and what has happened is a result of it. He butchered Asad and AsYa. And since then the show has been going down and down. And now the makers and the channel need to listen to the viewers. Its high time. They should get Karan back opposite Surbhi post leap for QH season 2.

  • Aman Kapoor

    Only fools will blame raqesh…… Why will he ruin asad? He was the one who came and stood by QH when the main lead left the show….. We are not expecting any gratitude but atleast don’t comment rubbish….. If anybody have to be blamed they are the writers since the story lost its track…. Post leap also i bet nobody can get back that magic ofof QH… not even karan……

  • Vashti Harripersad

    We will join in in full support and bring this show back to the highest ratings once again : Bring back KSG opposite Surbhi : the leap will be a success only then .. the fans will follow religiously .. pay attention to the public for once .. Don’t make the same mistake twice. !!

  • Mooumi Naj

    pls pls we all want ksg…pls bring him back…

  • Monica

    Just a small msg To Karan….from mission JFK… If Zee approaches him for QH season 2 , he should take it. Reason being it will prove his innocense across the board to all other channels and the telly world as well as the Bollywood world. We want his name cleared and we want him to stand Tall always. Hope he seriously considers it. We will accept whatever his decision is but would appreciate if he accepts.

    • Dr.Mrs.K.Shankar

      Yes. KSG shoiuld . That’s d reason he is back as the co-producer.

  • shrutika

    Qubool hai is indeedly a good show. I don’t think they should stop viewing it!! Even though it runs for years I would love watching surbhi anyday!

    • asya 4 ever

      Finally !
      A true qubool hai and surbhi jyoti fan !

  • Salman Karisma FC

    Who else should we blamed!? He ruined Asad!!

  • sarith

    i guess ayan will help zoya’s daugther and i think zoya’s father will survive and come back after the leap to seek revenge and i think rashid will also leave the drama but haider might stay for some reason.

  • KarthiKaBhian

    Want Karan Opposite Surbhi post leap….Their sizziling chemistry is enough to gaim more TRP….

  • MiShi

    plzzz plzzz bring back KSG in the show plzzz we want him again in the show.. without him, u forgot to take highest trp’s once again..

  • KSG-Forever

    Not sure if ZEE TV will get to see these messages, but as a viewer of Qubool Hai I also like to comment. Not being Indian, understanding Hindi and loving every episode of Qubool Hai for Karan and Surbhi, I request Zee TV or whoever is in charge of the serial to please bring back Karan. Please do not do this to the audiences, we take out time from our busy life to watch the show we love. Just like other viewers I also request and beg to bring Karan back even if the serial makers or the channel is not happy with Karan but please do this for the viewers and I am sure the show rating will get back to where it started.
    Please its a request from me and on behalf of the people I know who love to see Karan back in Qubool Hai.

    I think they should end the show now. I loved this show as it began. Great storyline. Got a bit fizzy and idiotic recently but not for anyone but the storyline has been weak. However at this point just have the babies and end the show. Smile and wave and we will look back at this show with a lot more grace than what’s about to happen if they go forward like some other show that is been dragging on zeetv and its gotten so bad its painful to watch (Pavitra Rishta). So as a fan of this show, lets respectfully end it so some other fresh show gets an opportunity.

  • asya 4 ever

    raqesh tried !
    he supported qh when karan left !

  • asya 4 ever

    qubool hai is not copying and will never copy madhubala !

  • munmun

    this show sucks now, i cannot believe that they would kill everyone in the show. It makes no sense. Karan was the perfect choice for Asad and he was the best thing that could ever happen to the show. the script sucks and so does the director of the show. Bring Asad back or shut the show down.

  • zoya

    We want asad and zoya back in the show pl do this miracal the show trp would be raised
