MUMBAI: In a new twist to the ‘Qubool Hai’ story, Zee TV has picked Raqesh Vashisth to play the lead of Asad in Qubool Hai. He will be replacing Karan Singh Grover who was dropped by the channel because of his unprofessional behavior and lack of commitment towards the show.
The creative team had a tough time dealing with Grover’s nonchalant and indifferent attitude and decided to replace him with immediate effect.
The production house 4 Lions and the channel unanimously selected Vashisth as the lead opposite Zoya (Surbhi Jyoti) in the TV show.
The producers believe that Raqesh is a good fit. They issued a statement saying that, “Raqesh is handsome, good-looking and he looks amazing with Zoya. The best and most important part is that he is known in the industry for his professionalism. We’re glad that he has agreed to come on board.”
Vashisth will start shooting for the show soon and will be seen as Asad from the beginning of the New Year.
