The actor has shot his comeback promo already
Nikitin Dheer made his TV debut earlier this year as Astika on Nagarjun-Ek Yoddha. The mythological-fantasy on Life Ok is the most expensive show on Indian TV. In a shocking development, the actor had quit the show earlier this month due to a number of issues ranging from bad characterisation to pay cuts. However, the makers seeing the dipping TRPs met up with the actor to sort out differences. Nikitin is back on the show as the feared Astika and today he shot for his comeback promo.
A source from the channel told Bollywood Life, “The makers met up with Nikitin to sort out all the issues. They had a healthy dialogue. The channel was keen to have Nikitin back as people liked his character of the main antagonist, Astika. Obviously, there were issues and now everything is fine. Today, the promo was shot reintroducing Astika on the show. His part will be shown from September” He plays the role of Anshuman Malhotra’s father on Nagarjun. The show is produced by Beyond Dreams.
When the actor quit the show, he told a leading daily that he was unhappy about the way his character was progressing in the visual extravaganza. However, a co-star from the show told another paper that it was his lack of acting skills that had exasperated the makers. He would take many retakes to say the dialogues. The actor had laughed off such stories saying that the makers had taken numerous look tests and he had fitted the bill. He also pointed out that the show was faring well due to his presence and the question of him being insecure about his co-star TV hunk, Mrunal Jain was baseless. Nikitin also went on to say that he cut his pay as he was emotionally attached to the show. Stay tuned for more updates on Bollywood Life…
