Yeh Hai Mohabbatein: Why did Ekta Kapoor replace Cezanne Khan?

The Star Plus show has been in the making for over a year now and there have been too many changes in the cast and story, confusing us

Yeh Hai Mohabbatein (YHM) is based on Manju Kapoor’s book – Custody which revolves around a woman who cannot conceive and a workaholic daddy who ignores his only child.As per news, YHM was initially supposed to showcase Cezanne Khan of Kasautii Zindagii Kay fame opposite Divyanka Tripathi, but the actor was replaced by Karan Patel.

After shooting several episodes and continuous delays in the show, we wonder why Cezanne was removed from the show. Ekta Kapoor at a press conference said, “Cezanne was replaced because of date issues.” When we confronted Divyanka and asked her who she was more comfortable working with the actor said, “I shot for YHM with Karan. I never really got to work with Cezanne.” Now that seems so untrue, no? ‘Coz at an earlier even when we asked the actor about working the Kasautii actor she said it was great and that he was a thorough professional. Now we are confused, which is the real story?

The comments from the makers and the actor clearly indicate that there is more than what meets the eye and there is a lot they are not willing to tell us. What is Ekta hiding? Did Cezanne leave the shows ‘coz he has date troubles? Considering YHM was supposed to be the actor’s come back vehicle what else is he busy with? Now doesn’t that sound a little bizarre to you BollywoodLifers?

While we are still trying to discover the real reason behind the change in the cast, tell us peeps if you believe in Ekta’s story?
