Karan Grover had given his notice to the makers of Bahu Hamari Rajnikant a long time back. The production house was busy looking for a replacement to play Shaan Kant in Bahu Hamari Rajnikant. Shaan is an important character in the show and they needed an actor to pick up where Karan left. After numerous profiles and a long hunt, the makers finally decided to go with Raqesh Bapat Vashisht. Raqesh's looks and personality were one of the few reasons why the makers thought he would be perfect for the role. Raqesh makes a comeback on television after a long time and was last seen in Qubool Hai in 2014. After that show, he ventured into Marathi films and has not been doing any TV shows.
Pune based Raqesh made his debut with a hit film Tum Bin opposite Sandali Sinha and Priyanshu Chatterjee in 2001. Later on, he did films like Dil Vil Pyar Vyar , Koi Mere Dil Mein Hai and Jai Santoshi Maa. But after doing spate of unsuccessful films he turned to TV with Saat Phere and then did Saathi Re. He also did a bold role in Maryada Lekin Tab Tak. It was during this show he fell in love with Riddhi Dogra and then eventually got married to her. He was also a part of Honge Juda Na Hum with Aamna Sharif followed by Qubool Hai where he replaced Karan Singh Grover as Asad. Though, the actor quit this show midway before the leap.
