As we inform earlier, actor Rafi Malik will soon be entering and bring a new twist in the Star Plus’ longest running popular show “Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai”.
The dashing actor who was signed in to play a pivotal role in the Directors’ Kut series has been replaced…once again.
Initially, Rafi was signed opposite Kanchi Singh (Gayu) but owing to some personal crisis, the actor had to step out. Fahad Ali was roped in as his replacement. And now, with the new track ready to shoot off, makers have been getting in poplar faces as Karthik’s (Mohsin Khan) family. Rafi, was summoned to play a strong character of Karthik’s elder brother for the same.
However, a reliable source from the production house informs that it’s not Rafi, but Mukul Harish who has been finalised to play the part of Ishaan.
Shared a source, “Rafi was almost finalised but due to some issues cropping up between the production and actor, Mukul was signed in the last minute. The actor has already started shoot.”
“The character that Mukul plays does not share a healthy bond with his younger brother, Kartik. Mukul’s character had to sacrifice his dream of becoming a singer to join his father’s business when Kartik left home. The resentment grows when his father forgives Kartik, when he returns home and ignores the sacrifices made by his elder son” added a source.
Mukul Harish was also seen in TV shows like ‘Pavitra Rishta’, ‘Mrs Kaushik Ki Paanch Bahuein’, ‘Kalash‘ etc.
