Rohan Mehra, who was playing Akshara’s son Naksh in Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai, is no longer part of the show. The maker Rajan Shahi has confirmed his ouster from the show.
“Yes, it’s true that we are in the process of casting the new Naksh.”
The makers of Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai, who were chasing for another on-screen character to play Naksh, have clearly found the right person for the role. The search was launched after Rohan Mehra took an exit from the show to participate in the ongoing reality show Bigg Boss 10.
Rishi Dev, who is best remembered for his roles in Bade Bhaiya Ki Dulhania and Balika Vadhu, will be brought on board as Naksh, as per a report in India Forums.
Rishi would make an entry during Karthik (Mohsin Khan) and Naira’s (Shivangi Joshi) engagement. The storyline would show him returning home after six months.
Rohan apparently exited the show in an unprofessional manner, which is the reason the creators are not willing to work with the actor again even if he gets evicted from Bigg Boss 10.
After Rohan’s exit, Naksh’s character was put on hold as the writers were busy penning down Hina Khan aka Akshara’s exit. But now since the upcoming track will start concentrating on Naksh once again, they decided to sign up a new actor.
“Naksh’s character was put on hold because we were busy chalking out Hina Khan’s exit. Now that the track will start focusing on Naksh once again, we have chosen to rope in another performer . The hunt is on. We can’t keep the character hanging in adjust any longer,” a source told the Times of India.
“Additionally, we aren’t excited about having Rohan back since he left our show in an unprofessional manner. He left us in the lurch by deciding to participate in the reality show overnight,” the source added.
