After newcomer Rishabh Sinha’s dramatic exit from Qubool Hai, buzz was that producer Gul Khan would find another newcomer to replace him. But now, she has found an apt replacement in Vikrant Massey, who garnered appreciation for his role of Shyam in Balika Vadhu. He will now play the role of the young stepbrother of Karan Singh Grover in the popular show.
“I intend to do the show, and currently we are going through the formalities,” reveals Vikrant, who will play the role of Ayaan, a young, impulsive guy. “He is a popular character and this role will be a big responsibility. I am up for the challenge.” This is the first time Vikrant is replacing another actor, but he says he has no qualms about it. “It doesn’t bother me. I am not insecure and have never been so. I don’t feel the pressure to deliver, but initially one has to match what the previous actor was doing in the show.”
Meanwhile, Vikrant is also awaiting the release of his debut film, Lootera. “I have a small but interesting part to play. I feel blessed to have got the chance to work with a director like Vikramaditya Motwane,” he says.
Though newbie Rishabh was very well accepted by the audiences, he quit the show as he bagged a role in a Subhash Ghai film. The channel and the show’s makers are very upset with him and have apparently served him a legal notice for walking out of the show despite signing a contract of exclusivity with them.
