Qubool Hai: Will Asad’s marriage with Zoya boost the show’s TRPs?
Forum 32

The numbers are dropping and the makers are desperate to keep the show going on

Qubool Hai has been in the news lately, and for all the wrong reasons. The serial had a charm and novelty which seems to be diminishing with every episode.

It’s not that the makers are not trying, but with a biased audience who insists on seeing Karan Singh Grover as Asad’s, it’s very difficult to get back the numbers. Their strategy now, is to induce as much romance as possible. Hence, they have decided to plan Asad Ahmed Khan (Raqesh Vashisth) and Zoya Farooqui’s (Surbhi Jyoti) wedding.

Asad has announced that he is ready to tie the knot and make Zoya his, forever. Amidst all the confusion of who killed who and who plotted against who, 4 Lions Films – the production house, is trying to induce romance, singing and dancing to keep the mood a little light.

With Asad’s marriage on the cards, preparations are in full swing, and a party will be thrown to announce the alliance, where the audience will get to witness AsYa grooving to AR Rahman’s hit number Sunta hai mera khuda from Pukar.

When Karan was on the show, we were sure that in such a sequence chemistry will be oozing, but with the new lead – will they be able to create the same magic?

Guess we’ll have to wait and watch to find that out, right?Subscribe to me on YouTube

    I, by chance got to see QH’s episode last week and was highly disappointed, and the only thought that came to my mind was that why the makers and channel are so adamant on forcing this replacement upon us viewers. No offence to Raqesh, I have nothing against him, he is a decent guy but as Asad, NO WAY, i did not expect what i saw. With this replacement, Asad has not just got a new face but a different character altogether. He doesn’t look like, sound like, behave like the Asad Ahmed Khan we know from the show Qubool Hai. He simply is not fitting into the character. Qubool Hai looks a completely different show altogether and has become just another ordinary show not the one which attracted me to watch it regularly but now I just want to give it a skip, i prefer sitting idle than watching QH now. Many say that story is the main thing, i agree but the way the actors bring the characters of the story to life plays a bigger part and for me QH was mainly about Asad and Zoya and how their lives were interconnected by a number of events and their families. And that was perfectly portrayed by Karan and Surbhi, and i dont think no one can ever replace them as Asad and Zoya in our minds. I would say it is never too late, if the original can be replaced after 15 months of successful running of the show then, the replacement can also be replaced with the original after mere few weeks in order to bring back the charm of the show. I would say no amount of romance with the replacement and zoya will attract the viewers, as he is not delivering as Asad. Hope Zee realises this, and brings back Karan to the show.

  • Monica

    Guess What!!! It will be the joke of the year 2014…NO karan=No KaBhi =No AsYa

    • Rikrani Mondal

      seriously yaar joke of the year

  • swapno

    Ha ha ha..new pair’s magic…it made me laugh….never ever they can create that magic…you also know that…you said fans are biased??? Okay why not??? When you got the best then why you will be satisfied with only good??haan?? Karan is/was/will be the best..and trp’s will be less, be sure of it..Sorry but cheap type of romance can’t bring trp’s..it is CV’s old trick they never ever can disclose the so called “Raaz” and turned the episode to the romantic turn…lame excuse…!!!

  • Sabina

    Never ever !! This man was the reason for trp’s fall and only KSG’s come back can rise it and if He gets married to Zoya tabtoh QH ko end hone se no one can stop This show don’t have any future

  • Srashti Kulshrestha

    asya marriage…..let me guess…this time the groom is missing!!
    and don’t call the viewers biased….we are demanding what is right!!
    without karan singh grover….qubool hai is nowhere that’s why makers have to choose cheap romantic scenes…..but it’s worsening the show!!
    we didn’t and will never accept any replacement…it’s time that channel people open their eyes and save the show!!

  • Poulami Sarkar

    This new guy dsnt even know a of acting. he looks like sj”s brother.and about trp the main reason of trp was asya i.e karan and surbhi. and rv only knows how to gain sympathy and how to talk about hate mails.and trp will hit 0 for sure in comming weeks if they show this sis -bro marrige.

  • Natalia C

    I don`t know about TRPs, but I know one thing – the magic of Asya left with Karan. I don`t have anything against RV, but I`m sorry he is not fit for Asad. Since the replacement of KSG, Asad was also replaced with a new character also named Asad who has nothing to do with the AAK I was used to see since October 2012.
    Many viewers demand KSG back and an apology from the channel for defaming him, but an addition should be made: the channel should also apologize to those viewers for the way they have been treated.

  • nadi khan

    Lol ksg is only asad simply bring him bck its everyone advantage nd clear all this mess

    it is not biased audience…the performance with the new guy is not worth spending time for the show anymore :(

  • Sangeet Bharghav

    oh please!!! who wants to watch QH now that KSG is not there as asad, they replaced KSG with a guy who cant even act! where do they want magic????? now asad and zoya look like bhai -behen no matter how much the PH tires they need good actors to carry out what they write and they lost the best with KSG! you cant expect magic with a guy who cant act at all

  • asma kabhian

    lolz asya only kabhi not anyone else ok…

    and you knw what i mean it only kabhi we want ksg back in qh n rakesh uncle quit diz shw coz rakesh surbhi/zoya bro or asad/ksg surbhi/ zoya husband

  • Yash Bhatia

    Showing cheap 3rd grade romance will not increase thr TRPs. Its like surbhi aka zoya is being forced to show 3rd grade romance with a stranger. .Rather we audiences were happy seeing the normal eye to eye romance of Karan and surbhi ie the real and only Asya

    WE PROMISE ZEE THT WE WILL NOT LET YOU SUCCEED WITHOUT KARAN SINGH GROVER

  • Valita Pava

    I consider that is not fair all happened to Karan. Zee TV used Karan for
    to getting succes with their show, he acted fabulos on the set and he
    created a magic Asad, in all the scenes, angry, laughing, romantic,
    lover, charming, funny. Zee TV wrong when it called unprofessional. For
    me, QH ended sane time with Karan’s departure.

  • Riddha KSGian

    magic…lol …that was the biggest joke…the new replacement looks like Zoya’s grand dad…Karan and Surbhi can only create magic together…no random robot can create any magic

  • aseela sha

    This marriage brings trps down for sure.And the show become soon off air.Thanks ZEE for ruining a wonderful show.Better u bring KSG back to the show and show this marriage.Otherwise the left over viewers will drop watching it.The new guy has only one look for all emotions.He dont know the ‘a’ of acting.And they have no chemistry.YEH banda tho surbhi ki baap lagtha hai.

  • Alishba

    Ermmm cant say much about the TRPs but if it was to increase it would have increased last week where there was asya over the top romance that actually looked like an attempt to increase trp but no the trp decreased. I guess even the trps didnt see anything romantic or magical in the lead pair. For me asya magic is gone no matter how hard production house try but a pair that is not magical cannot be magic no matter what. Asad Ahmed Khan is the “As” of ASYA which was played by karan to perfection as if it was just meant to be played by none other than KSG. RV is a good actor but he cannot fit in this role im sorry. Zee better bring KSG back to the show and get real ASYA= played by karan surbhi nikkah done which we waited for since 15 months and now feel cheated by production house. I hate the way zee and production house is forcing viewers to see a couple that lacks chemistry and does not interest them. Better late then never zee network get some sense and get KSG back.

  • ksgianforlife

    that new guy sucks, his scenes are disgusting and i have already stopped
    to watch. they can do what they want but qubool hai remains a big flop.
    furthermore no one is interested in that stupid marriage. we have
    waited 14 months for that nikkah which didn’t take place 3 times!!even
    if they do a nikkah now they have defintly screwed it up !!!karan is the only asad and will be always the only asad!!!!

    • Salam Pti

      WELL DONE
      THANKS U MORE N MORE PEOPLE STOP IT IS BETTER/
      KIYA HO GAYA HAI ZEE TV KO KONSI DUSHMANI HAI INNAY KARAN KAY SAATH AUR PHIR HAMARAY SAATH BHI…

  • Mamta Swaika

    Where is the bias in the fans ? It is the channel that is biased against
    Karan unfortunately for us and themselves. There can be no other reason
    for this replacement. We have nothing against RV but he just can not
    match up to Karan in any way….neither appearance nor performance ! He
    has very big boots to fill and just bringing in the romance will not do.
    In fact it may have the opposite effect as KaBhi fans are not ready to accept anyone romance Zoya but Karan. They will totally reject the serial and this will reflect in the dwindling TRPs for QH .In fact it will have a spill over effect over all Zee serials.Can Zee not see this and bring Karan back for a finale to this track?We have been asking for over one month and if the channel is so deaf to our requests how can they expect loyalty from US ?

  • Ruma Roy

    I personally feel that Karan and Surbhi are one of the best on-screen couple on TV. Raqesh and Surbhi have forced chemistry. Having Zoya lie on shirtless Asad is not chemistry. I wonder how all of a sudden Asad became so lovely-dovey and flirty? ZEE ad the Production House has totally butchered the character of Asad to increase TRP and viewership. When Karan and Surbhi used to look into each other’s eye passionately, it set the screen on fire and that’s chemistry for me. Overly done scene cannot bring about the desired chemistry and TRPs. Love karan surbhi for their bang on chemistry and romantic scenes.

    • Salam Pti

      AGREE TOO

  • mooumi

    we r not baised audience, just look how Mr. vashist act, poor fellow can’t even talk properly, qh doomed.

  • mooumi

    Mr. vashist looks like sj’s big bro .

  • Roshni

    No ksg = no trp for sure

  • EE

    The new guy should be given a chance , people are writing him off without bothering to watch , indians are most non-adaptive creatures. In hollywood its so common and nobody stops watching , like Two and half men where Charlie Sheen was replaced, the show is still doing well

    • Rikrani Mondal

      fact is fact chance nahi banta hai boss as he just can’t ustify the Asad character kavi dimag se judge karke dekho kuki mai koi ksgian nahi thi par asad ke role ksg is the best as i become now a ksgian as asadian. asad aaur baki ki replacement me farq hai it was KSG king of expreesion “eye expression” aap manlo par hum zindegi var nahi manenge aur dil to tuta hai aur tute dil ke upar imarat kitne din tikte hai mai v to dekhu zara sirf mere akele ka nahi bohot saare . aur chance nam ka cheez actually hai nahi as koi ek baar paida ho jaye to fir se pet pe jake dobara paida nahi hota we once accept ksg as asad never change it

    • Alishba

      I see where you are coming from and most viewers like me have given a chance to RV we have tried our best to adjust to the change but its not working as I said he is a good actor but is not somehow fitting in to the character.

    • Karan Singh Grover

      YOUR GAY! WE WANT KARAN SINGH GROVER BACK!!!!! WE LOVE HIM!!!! HE IS THE ONLY ONE WHO CAN PLAY ASAD AHMED KHAN!!!!!!!! RV IS COMPLETELY DISGUSTING!!!!!!

  • aysha

  • Zara21

    forcing romantic scenes between asya 2.0 hasn’t got me hooked ! infact ive stopped watching qubool hai ! and most of online viewers as well ! trps can pick up but qubool hai have lost a lot of fans ! we are the fans who waited patiently for an asya nikaah ! instead we get screwed over .. we had to stick through tanveer and zoya and Ayaan ..with the hope of seeing karan and surbhi finally saying qubool hai as asya ! instead karan leaves and the channel calls him a drunk ! hat u zee ! honestly I don’t like raqesh .. I feel like ever since he entered he keeps ruining asad for me and im sorry but im not going to watch the wedding !

  • Zoya Hussain

    ok honestly this guy plays a better role of asad ahmed khan but because karan sigh gover was first he looks the best so you people should have not kicked him out of the show and that is why i stopped watching anyway ignoring the cast and looking at asad and zoya NO! THEY SHOULD NOT GET MARRIED because its too soon and its starting to get boring there should be a twist or something like both loose there memory something like that in my opinion will make the show better.

  • Afsa

    No way If KSG their the Drama going outstanding …. New ASAD and any other No ONE standing LIke KSG …. t

  • Marwa Boughanmi

    it is not biased audience but the new actor is like a stone he gives the same expressions in sadness anger and romance he looks weird with surbhi there is no chemistery between them karan is a great actor but this RV he can’t really act so it’s time for him and for the channel to understand that he can’t be asad ahmed khan i’m tunisian i watched qubool hai for the first time in youtube it was the chemistery between the leads that attracted me to watch i’m sorry to say but zee tv is giving a bad example of indian channels because here in tunisia for the channels the viewers opinions are the most important they care alot about fans feelings but for zee tv it’s not the case they don’t even respect viewers and they just ignore them

  • Shoheli Hossain

    NEW Asad n Zoya never create the magic . KSG n SURUBHI EK saath this jodi only romance ka magic dhakha saakta hai. KSG kus bhi nahi korta KSG ka jo eyes tells everything . KSG KA eyes KA jo act hai oh totally different . KSG ALWAYS ZOYA SE HIS EYES SE SAB KUS BOLTA . KSG KA ADDA, KSG ka STYLE, KSG kA EXPRESSION, KSG KA ACTING, KSG KA ANGRY LOOKS , KSG KA WALKING STYLE, KSG KA ZOYA KO SAATH DECENT ROMANC Main kabhi nahi bhul saakti. NEW ASAd N ZOYA KA ROMANCE BAHUT JADA NASTY LAGTA HAI. PLEASE BRING BACK KSG IN QUBOOL HAI . KSG ONLY PERFECT ASAD. ASAD AHMED JAISA ITNA HARD ROLE ONLY KSG KOR SAAKTA OR KOI NAHI . KSG AWESOME AND AMAZING ACTOR.

  • sadaf

    thanks for the article and very well said with karan chemistry vil b oozing but alasss….No matter what dance/song sequence you show AsYa will never be the same. It is evident at the desperate attempt being made to “create” chemistry which is NEVER possible. Try all you want repeat the same scenes but AsYa magic is gone. This lusty nonsense and cheap scenes were never ever AsYa. The expressions, acting, emotions, dialogues, etc everything of this duplicate Asad is expressionless ..audience is not biased the fact is that karn set a very high standard for asad ahmed khan n for asya..the way he depicted the role no one can…as an avid quboolian we want our karan back n we want proper closure of asya

  • Fari

    NEVER WILL WE WANT SKG BACK AND THIS IS THE ONLY WAY TO GET TRPS BACK

  • Manisha Singh Ksg

    go 2 hell qh nmo ksg no qh shadi jaha bhi karo trp nhi aaane wali :P

  • Amanpreet Kaur

    this will never happen
    no one can replace KSG
    this new guy can never compete with KSG
    KSG is one n only ASAD AHMED KHAN

  • rida rashid rashid

    we kabhi fans are highly disappinted by the makerz,, we only want kabhi as asya no one else

    • Alishba

      You are right. I mean didnt gul khan and zee network saw the power of the leading pair karan and surbhi during zoyaan track because the trp got really descreased and ones they came back together during mohabbat ki jeet track it increased again. How can zee even dare to ruin a couple that was sooo magical and enough to get high trp. Now with the current pair I highly doubt it will happen because no one is willing to see nikkah of zoya with new asad when they have cheated three times when karan was in the show. Gul khan should ask zee to request karan to come back by apologising to him. Karan surbhi you are magical couple and will always be.

  • Zoya Farouqui

    The fans are NOT biased. Yes, we do want Asad to be played by Karan.He is who fit the bill.

    Giving justifications that Raqesh will bring out a softer side is rather lame. Coz that would NOT be ASAD.

    I am not one of the fans who hasn’t given the replacement a chance. I have. I watch everyday.But the one thought that passes my mind everyday is, THIS WAS THE WORST CASTING DECISION EVER!

    You talk of magic. What magic can you expect out of a pair so badly mismatched? Instead of hiring the first jobless actor available, they should have seen if they even gel on screen together! I won’t even say they look like brother n sister,bcos even they would have some chemistry of the sibling sort.

    If a fitting replacement could not be found,it would have been better to kill off Asad’s character. Because,what we see on-screen anyway, IS NOT ASAD!

  • Afsa

    Zoya romance with stranger hahaha … QH become joke of year

  • MiShi

    what rubbish, fans r not biased ok first see raqesh’s acting then talk like this.. he doesn’t suits at all….
    plzzzzzzzzzzz bring KSG back, we want KSG backkk without him no trp NO QH anymore..
    NO KSG = NO QH = NO TRP = FLOPE DRAMA = BIG JOKE OF 2014 :-/

  • Dimple Agarwal

    just stop using d words like BIASED AUDIENCE..who r biased..channel r audience??
    channel is biased n not d audience..first u people understand this befor writting articles.
    if we people r biased y we will continue to watch d show even if nikaah ws cancelled 3 times…if v r biased y watched d show even u showed accidental nikaah..v trusted d channel n ph alot becz they did magic by showing KaBhi as AsYa..
    now in quboolhai zoya is romancing with a rock n not with a man..n for viwers ZOYA is SURBHI n ASAD is only KSG..magic of KaBhi cant be rep[laced with anyone.YES v r not interested in nikaah track now becz there is no more asad in quboolhai now..channel shuld only continue with fake actors,fake nikaahs,fake tracks n finally fake trps.
