Will history repeat itself with the 4 Lions Films’ show?
When Barun Sobti decided to explore new ventures, his show with Sanaya Irani, Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon abruptly shut shop. 4 Lions Films and the channel bared the brunt of the blame game without complaints. Unfortunately, it seems to us like history is repeating itself with the production house.
It’s been a year and two months since their last venture Qubool Hai hit the screens. The show enjoyed great numbers for a long time, ‘coz of the chemistry and biology between the lead actors Karan Singh Grover and Surbhi Jyoti. Since Karan quit the show in search of greener pastures, the show will be now taken ahead by the Maryada actor, Raqesh Vashisth.
Zee TV is calling Karan unprofessional and the dishy dude blames the channel officials of being egoistic, while the production house is keeping a safe distance from all the blame game. They are neither supporting nor refuting Karan or the channel. They’ve decided to cast Raqesh as Asad Ahmed Khan, but will the actor be able to draw the same popularity as KSG? For that, we will have to wait and watch.
If you remember, people had threatened to boycott Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon, when the makers decided to cast Viraf Patel in place of Barun. So Gul Khan (producer) and Star Plus simply pulled the plug. However, Zee in no way is ready to end Qubool Hai yet, so they have requested the makers to just replace the actor. Will the replacement affect the numbers or not, remains to be seen. Raqesh will make his first appearance on the daily soap by January.
We hope the serial continues, Raqesh is able to step into Karan’s shoes with ease and people let go of their obsession with KSG and Surbhi together. Fingers crossed!
