He’s been part of the popular TV show,

Diya Aur Baati Hum

, since its inception three years ago. But the latest news is that director Rohit Goyal has quit the show. Recently, there was buzz that the show’s cast was miffed with him for being partial towards his wife Deepika Singh, who is the lead actress on the show. Apparently, he would frequently allow her to report late on the sets and leave early as well.

We’ve also heard that things got tougher for him after an argument with the lead actor Anas Rashid. But Rohit refutes these rumours and says that he quit the show to direct a new series by the same producers.

“I have been planning for the new show for the past two months, and now we are in the midst of pre-production. We will start shooting this month, so there’s a lot to do before that,” he says.

Ask him about the rumour about being partial towards Deepika on the sets, and he says, “I would suggest you come and check the entry log that every actor has to fill in. You will see that she has worked harder than the rest. Even when we were dating, she would work extra hard, so that people wouldn’t point fingers at her. And now, after marriage, she’s been doing the same. These stories are nothing but gossip.”

Goyal also adds that the ‘argument’ he had with Anas was only a “misunderstanding”. “It started when Anas thought that I had saidsomething about him to someone, which I hadn’t. But then Isat him down and explained everything to him, and everything was okay. I have a good working relationship with Anas.”
