Raqesh Vashisth replaces Karan Singh Grover in ‘Qubool Hai’

Raqesh Vashisth will replace Karan Singh Grover in Zee TV popular serial ‘Qubool Hai’. Karan has been ousted from the serial for his unprofessional behaviour. Raqesh is currently doing celebrity dance show 'Nach Baliye 6' with girlfriend Riddhi Dogra.

Many names were tabled to play the lead role of ‘Qubool Hai’ but finally Raqesh has been selected.

Karan was warned by the channel many times but he did not mend his ways. Sometimes he used to come for the shoot late and many a times he drunk and come for shooting. The channel reported that "We are looking at a big alternate. Gurmeet Choudhary, Mishal Raheja, Kushal Tandon and Barun Sobti are the names we are pondering on. And one actor the channel is very keen on roping in is Mishal."

"Unprofessional behaviour will always be accorded with strict disciplinary action," said Ajay Bhalwankar, content head, Zee Entertainment Enterprises Limited.

"Actors should not take things lightly when they agree to be a part of a show as their erratic behaviour can affect the livelihoods of many others who are working on it. No actor can hold shoots or dictate their terms and conditions to an extent that it hampers the show," he added.

Karan's replacement will be announced by the channel soon.

"We have initiated legal action and will announce his replacement soon," Bhalwankar said.

‘Qubool Hai’ revolves around two Muslim families and deals with their emotional ups and downs in their lives. It went on air on Zee TV in October 2012.

"The creative team has had a tough time with him and his nonchalant and indifferent attitude could not be tolerated any longer, so the channel has decided to replace him," said the source.
