That might not have gone down too well with Khan!
The current track of Diya Aur Baati Hum focuses on Sooraj (Anas Rashid) working hard to attain his goal of becoming a hotelier. In order to raise funds for the same, he's now a part of a kabaddi team and is going to be under strict training for the same. And when there is kabaddi, there is a coach!
It was earlier reported that Shahbaz Khan has been signed for the role of the kabaddi coach but the latest news is that just a few days before the shoot, the actor was replaced by Rituraj Singh, popular for his role as Preetika Rao's father in Beintehaa. Reportedly, he started shooting for the show today.
While talking to a leading entertainment portal, Rituraj confirmed the news saying, "Yes, this is a very different and nice role. The coach, Mahendra Singh will be a powerful man, well established in his game. He will be a no-nonsense guy, strict and stern when it comes to the game. I am glad to get back to Star Plus after a long time; my last show with them was K. Street Pali Hill.”
While Shahbaz claims to have quit the show due to creative differences, the production house holds that the last minute replacement was the channel's decision.
Stay tuned for more updates on the show!
