The actor is confirmed but is yet to sign the dotted line
After Karan Mehra’s exit from Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai, the makers were looking for the right face to fit the bill. After contemplating on various famous names from the industry, actor Vishal Singh has been chosen for the role in the long-running drama.
Last seen in Parvarrish season one, Vishal is best known for being the eye candy of popular shows of the 90s like Dekh Bhai Dekh. Buzz is the makers are soon planning to go to Switzerland and the entry of the new Naitik will happen in the picturesque Swiss locales. Karan Mehra refused to come back though the channel and makers tried hard to cajole him for a comeback. So, finally the call for introducing the new Naitik was taken. Names like Hussain Kuwajerwala, Hiten Tejwani and Rohit Roy were considered for this role .
Akshara (Hina Khan) has been shown longing for Naitik in the show and finally her wait will be over . Meanwhile the love story of new generation on the show will be getting complicated. The love triangle of Kartik (Mohsin Khan), Naira (Shivangi Joshi) and Gayu (Kanchi Singh) is getting complicated by the day. Also, a new girl will make an entry in Naksh’s (Rohan Mehra) life.
A source told Bollywood Life, “Vishal is confirmed for the role but he has not signed the contract so far. It should happen in a couple of days. The producer (Rajan Shahi) and Vishal are friends since a long time, and they share an excellent rapport.”
Months earlier, the exit of Karan Mehra from Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai created quite a furore. The actor’s wife Nisha Raval wrote a post of Facebook, which allegedly did not go down well with Hina Khan. The leading lady also rubbished tales of the two sharing cold vibes on the set.
With a new Naitik coming on the show, the drama should get heightened. The TRPs of the show are very good in urban and rural markets and we feel the makers will spare no efforts to create the perfect impression!
